On this 7 day adventure, discover Central Australia as you are challenged to trek the Larapinta Trail, one of Australia’s most renowned walking tracks.

Together with a team of enthusiastic adventurers, you’ll follow the trail as it traverses the breathtaking West MacDonnell Mountain Ranges. Surrounded by endless stretches of red desert and ancient bush, you’ll trek well-defined paths, rugged hills and steep descents. With the breathtaking views of Mount Sonder and Haasts Bluff resting in the distance, expect to be rewarded with panoramic views of the Outback.

Along the way, hear the Dreamtime stories of the Western Arrernte people and enjoy some delicious bush tucker. At the end of each challenging but rewarding day of trekking, reflect on all you have accomplished as you watch the sun go down and the sky transform into millions of stars.

In Australia, one in five people have a diagnosed mental health condition and nine Australians die from suicide every single day. Mental illness has undoubtedly become one of the biggest health challenges in our lifetime and continues to grow at an alarming rate.

All of the funds raised from this challenge will be invested in crucial research projects aimed at determining what causes mental illness and how it can be prevented. Your hard-earned fundraising efforts funds will be tied to projects that focus on youth mental health, depression, indigenous mental health and eating disorders. Beyond helping to fund research breakthroughs, your commitment to this challenge will raise awareness, reduce the stigma and provide hope for Australians affected by mental health issues.
