Join the Hike for Habitat Larapinta Challenge and support Habitat for Humanity to build strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter.
On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you’ll trek through the Australian outback on one of the most spectacular walking tracks in the world—the Larapinta Trail.
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. Over 5 days, you will journey along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail, trekking over 60 kilometres. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers and the dramatic desert landscapes of the Red Centre.
By day, you’ll trek through the ochre-landscapes of the outback, witnessing the sacred sites of the Arrernte people and by night you’ll camp under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of native wildlife. Best of all, you’ll help working families access affordable and safe housing.
All over the world, families and communities have been impacted by the current global pandemic. During this crisis, a safe and secure home has never been more important. For the health and safety of our family and community, we have been told to stay home. However, it is estimated that 1.6 billion people globally live without adequate shelter.
For many of the communities we work in, inadequate housing conditions threaten to greatly aggravate this deadly health crisis. As a global community, we must work together to ensure everyone has access to a safe, secure and healthy home, giving families a healthy foundation to build their future.
Every dollar raised on this adventure will go directly to the Home Together Fund. This will enable Habitat Australia to remain sustainable and ensure we can continue to help those most in need in Australia and the Asia Pacific region, as soon as we are able to.
