To those of you who made it to TNH23, a big thank you for making it such a fun & fabulous event.
We had a blast & are so glad you were able to join us in Darwin for a long overdue Aussie Nash Hash.
Here’s a snapshot of TNH23.
623 Hashers came
623 Hashers officially came – from every Australian state & mainland territory + Christmas Island, New Zealand, the Philippines, Fiji, Germany, Ireland, Scotland, England, Japan, Nigeria, the USA and Papua New Guinea.
There’s a final who’s cuming list on the TNH23 webpage.
Drink it down
- 47 kegs of locally brewed beer, ginger beer, cider & alcoholic lemonade
- 230 cartons of beer & non-alcoholic drinks
- 450 bottles of wine
Alcohol consumption was higher than the previous 2 Nash Hashes, though we had fewer Hashers here – a great effort!
Hangovers were lower in number – we credit the preservative-free drinks from One Mile Brewery 🍺.
- 800 stir-fry and curry meals from Johnnies
- 440 baked spud meals from The Potato Man
- 500 Filipino inspired meals from Filos Food
- 695 ice cream/frozen yogurt cones/cups from Sundae Social
- 750 cups of coffees & other hot & cold drinks from Just Coffee Beans NT
- 300 breakfast laksas from Mary’s laksa
- 300 bacon & egg breakfasts
- 300+ fresh juices and smoothies from The Harvest Press
We’ve had some lovely emails from our food truck suppliers who really enjoyed being a part of TNH23 😊
We supported local charities, with Lions, Rotary, Variety, Shoot for a Cure, Darwin Rural H3 and Gravel Rash H3 providing our post-run/cycle BBQ lunches and the Waratahs Football Club providing bar staff.
We also had great support from local sponsors – NT Government, FRM Refrigeration & Air Conditioning, PowerWater, Frontier Hotel & Punters Bar, One Mile Brewery, Darwin Ski Club, Precinct Tavern, Tim’s Surf & Turf, Lizards Bar, Woolworths Nightcliff, Coles Casuarina Village and Halikos Hospitality Group Hotels.
RDR charity success
We raised over $15,000 for the Red Dress Run charity – Sabrina’s Reach4Life – with final total funds raised to be confirmed.
Hear more from Lidia Di Lembo, Co-founder of Sabrina’s Reach4Life, and Crusty Crab, Top End H3, in their interview on Darwin’s Mix 104.9.
We supported local businesses, with locally-sourced goodies in the goodie bags, locally-brewed alcoholic beverages, & locally-run food trucks providing Darwin-inspired food & beverages.
We had local bus company CDC provide transport, Indigenous-run security firm Cap22 keep the Hash Venue secure with their staff also providing first aid when required, sound production from local business GigTek, and our fabulous local musicians – Stereobate, The Neo & Coffin Fitz.
Check out the TNH23 merch page if you’re after extra TNH23 merchandise.
We (generally) stayed safe.
Thanks to everyone for looking out for, & looking after, their fellow Hashers, keeping them hydrated, happy and on trail.
Final thanks from the TNH23 Committee …

Thanks to our fabulous Hares for providing great trails, to the local clubs for organising the Pre-lube, Red Dress Run, Ladies’ & Gentlemen’s lunches and Darwin H3 Post Lube, and to the Hash Act performers for some quality entertainment on Saturday night.
And the biggest thank you to everyone who came – you made the event a fantastic success. We couldn’t have wished for a happier, friendlier, more energetic & fun bunch of people to spend the weekend with. Thanks for your awesome love and support ❤️.
On on to Fremantle in 2025.
