The incredible and unique gold mining terrain of Rowdy Flat is the venue for Interclub #2.

About Interclubs
Interclub events are our annual competition with WaggaRoos. As with all our events, they’re open to everyone and cater to all abilities. Points are awarded to each competitor for starting, completing a course and gaining a podium finish. The points are tallied at the end of the year and the club with the most points wins the North East South West Interstate Challenge Cup (and who wouldn’t want to win something with a name like that!).


Rowdy Flat is an amazing area for orienteering, with perhaps the most complex gold mining terrain in the world. It requires very careful navigation through myriad features and the steep gullies in some areas provide a lot of route choice and memorable moments – especially when it’s wet! It really is a truly unique area and is one of those “must try once” events.
