Imagine a journey that takes you right into the heart of Australia, across the vast and ancient landscape of the Red Centre.

The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges.

As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.

By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.

Best of all, you will be raising vital funds for Chris O’Brien Lifehouse to transform cancer treatment for Australians through discovery, research and uncompromising care.

By taking part in this inspiring adventure, you will be raising the funds to treat and care for young Australians living with sarcoma. Sarcomas are a group of cancers that start in the bones or the soft tissues, such as muscle and fibrous tissues.

The major challenge for youth living with the disease is how to get the best treatment for their age-specific requirements.

We need your help to further enhance our capacity to deliver our current services in treating and caring for young patients at Lifehouse who have this devastating cancer.
