LouiseAnn is taking a well deserved break from hosting this annual event after hosting it for 6 years now. She has asked me to fill in and host the event this year although she will still be involved behind the scenes. Her logo and the concept of this event have been used with her permission, thankyou LouiseAnn.

The Event:

The winners will be announced:
Saturday 6th of April, 2019

You can arrive any time from noon for the award ceremony at around 1pm. There will be an area for trackables of all sorts, but please remember if you take one, to log it online. Unlogged trackables make fairies cry.
The Darebin Creek Bike trail passes very close to the event and runs from Latrobe Uni nearly to the Yarra River.

1pm - Announcement of the Winners and Runners up
2pm - finish, but you can stay on site as long as there are people there

Facilities and the event site include toilets, free BBQs (which we will be using) and a picnic shelter. The Darebin Creek Environment Centre also has its home here.
