2019 Paddy Pallin
"Will I or Wollemi"


A pristine river, spectacular views, a world heritage national park, history, wildlife and free camping await you. There may even be a hot shower.

The Hash House (start & finish) will be at Upper Colo – only about an hour and a half drive from Sydney CBD –and less than three hours from either Newcastle or Wollongong. 

Free camping is available on Saturday night and 1st Waitara Scouts will provide dinner for an additional fee. 

This is a six-hour event starting at 9am with maps available at 7am and finishing at 3pm. Following the rogaine, food and drinks will be provided by the Scouts, there will be presentation of perpetual trophies and prizes (including lucky door prizes) provided by the Paddy Pallin Organisation.

This will be the 56th Paddy Pallin Rogaine which was started by Paddy Pallin in 1964 and has been organised by NSW Rogaining Association since 1988. The key goal, which has applied since the first event, is to encourage people to enjoy the bush with minimal impact and to practice and improve their navigation skills.

As well as the event being sponsored by the Paddy Pallin Organistation, a donation from your entry fee will be made to Scouts Australia NSW, which was an organisation that Paddy Pallin himself supported in his lifetime.
