New to Rogaining?

Would you like some information on ...

  • Equipment needed.
  • How to prepare.
  • What happens when you get there.
  • What happens on the course.
  • How to navigate.

Hiding away in our Books Section is a rather large PDF file published by the Victorians which answers these questions.  It is well worth taking the time to download a copy.

BWRS remote first aid

If you are keen to get some first aid skills, with a focus on remote area first aid, then you should check out the courses offered by the Bushwalkers Wilderness Rescue Squad - they run these courses that are, by all accounts, great.

Remember too that if you have been a major volunteer at a NSWRA event then you can claim $100 towards the cost of a first-aid course - like this one - rather than getting a free event entry!
