LOCATION and ACCOMMODATION
As in 2022, this year's ROAR event on Sunday October 15 2023 will be held at Mt Crawford Forest,
8 kilometres southeast of Williamstown which is located 50 kilometres northeast of Adelaide, South Australia's Capital city.
Williamstown is a delightful country hamlet in the Southern Barossa Valley and is a gateway not only to the wine and food offerings of the Barossa, but is fast becoming known as the centre of growing Barossa adventure opportunities, of which the ROAR event is but one.
Located as it is where the forests meet the vines, Williamstown is also the entry point to the South Para Reservoir where adventurers can kayak or canoe South
Para waters from established parking and toilet facilities - and to the Warren Reservoir (where the Roar Event will be be based) and where parking and toilet facilities are complemented by a sophisticated kayak/canoe launching point which includes launching facilities for the disabled.
