Join The Black Dog Institute on the adventure of a lifetime in China!
Winding its way across the north of China, from the Yellow Sea to the Gobi Desert, the Great Wall of China is one of mankind’s most impressive architectural accomplishments.
As part of this adventure, you’ll travel through history to the very heart of China’s ancient culture. Over five days, you’ll trek between mist-covered mountains, into local villages, across rolling farmlands and through dense forest.
With the support of expert guides, you’ll explore the many facets of the Great Wall, deciphering the ancient stories and poems etched into its watchtowers—every brick seeming to tell a story of war and adventure.
Swapping the majesty of the Great Wall for the hustle and bustle of Beijing, you are immediately immersed in China’s confounding and contrasting culture. Discover the ancient history of the Forbidden City and the Temple of Heaven, experience the poignancy of Tiananmen Square and marvel at the modernity of the 798 Art District.
Best of all, you will be raising urgently needed funds for The Black Dog Institute to help enable mentally healthier lives through innovations in science, medicine, education, public policy and knowledge translation.
Every dollar raised through this incredible adventure will support the ongoing work of the Black Dog Institute and help facilitate the national rollout of our education workshops, mental health training and community awareness programs. These programs are vital, particularly in regional and rural areas, as well as in major cities, to ensure that all Australians have access to the care, information and resources they need.
