About this rogaine ..

Location:   Swansea area with Hash House at Nesca Park (Bargoed House), 4km south of Swansea

Duration:   This was a 6 hour event with a mass start at 9:30am, finishing at 3:30pm.

Scoring System:   Navlight system was used.

Description:   This was a 6 hour event around the suburban area of Swansea, gateway to beautiful Lake Macquarie and only 75 minutes north of Hornsby. You had the opportunity of admiring spectacular coastal scenery while enjoying the peacefulness and serenity of lakeside locations. The area consisted of a mix of small villages, suburbia, national park and some local history. The hash house was at a picturesque picnic reserve on the shore of Lake Macquarie.
