Adventure Seekers Club: Para Wirra Rogaining
Navigate through nature.
Navigate through nature.
Steer yourself through the bush
Rogaining is a large-scale outdoor treasure hunt. Each team’s objective is to find the most ‘controls’ as possible in the allocated time. You’ll navigate on foot, armed only with your course map and a compass. Unplug, connect and immerse yourself.
Pace, route and adventure level for the Para Wirra Bush Event is up to you. Some teams lean into healthy competition and set out to find every control – if they can. Some take it slow and keep an eye out for roaming emus, kangaroos, and echidnas. There’s plenty of vibrant birdlife and flowing creeks to explore, too.
The experience extends beyond the pace or course you choose. It’s free roaming. Getting intimate with land. Spending an idyllic spring day beneath the gumtrees. Learning something new.

Physiotherapist Sam is wrangling a crew (or a few) to car-pool up to the Para Wirra event on Sat 16 September. This is a reasonably entry-level rogaining event. All fitness and outdoor experience levels are welcome.
There will be training sessions available in the lead up and support. You could even just come along to some training and try.
Connect with him at the city studio, via email firstname.lastname@example.org, or inbox his instagram @samlutze_adventurephysio.
Sam lives and breathes movement and outdoor adventure and always loves a chat!

Sam’s movement journey as a teenager was defined by focus, commitment, competitiveness and ruthless perfectionism as a long-distance runner. It wasn’t until his early 20’s when he quit Uni, threw in the athletics towel and decided to chase the snow between Victoria and Japan that he discovered the freedom and fulfilment of moving in harmony with the natural world.
After 3 and a half years he was called to return to Adelaide to complete his physio studies. He then travelled to India to immerse himself in yoga teacher training. Outside of the clinic and studio, Sam enjoys trail running, mountain biking and spending quality time out in nature with his beautiful partner Shannen and their flourishing baby Maya.
