The Rosemary Hill Trail Run will provide a great day out for trail runners & walkers on very well marked and beautifully maintained trails. The trails are mostly custom-made single-track with occasional jeep track and meander through the working farm with bits of forest, farm dams, water streams and even some old ruins to explore.

After the race, breakfast can be enjoyed at the lovely Rosemary Hill restaurant and tea garden situated in the lush gardens next to the start/finish line. With a mouth watering all day menu and a designer tea and coffee menu, tired and hungry runners can refuel with food freshly prepared and served with freshly picked herbs and vegetables from the farm's organic garden.

As a family friendly venue, there is lots of entertainment for the kids so bring the whole family and spend a active, fun-filled day away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
