The trek was amazing! Truly life changing. A great group of people. An experience I will cherish for life. The solitude is so good for the soul.

— Lauren, Tarkine Coast and Cradle Mountain trek 2018

1.6 billion people around the world are currently living without adequate shelter. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, the world was already experiencing a housing crisis but this has only added to its urgency. A safe and secure home has never been more important. 

Hike for Habitat: Cradle Mountain is your chance to help ensure everyone has a safe and decent place to live. This adventure is an opportunity to raise funds for Habitat for Humanity Australia so that they continue to help those most in need in Australia and the Asia Pacific region. 

Over 5 days, you’ll trek a mix of both physically demanding and more scenic trails, discovering the most magnificent parts of Tasmania’s breathtaking Cradle Mountain. Together with your fellow teammates, your commitment will help vulnerable families around the world achieve the strength, stability and independence they need to build a better future. Though this adventure is a challenging one, you’ll be rewarded with a sense of accomplishment knowing you have given families in need a healthy foundation to build a better future.

By joining this adventure, you’ll be supporting Habitat for Humanity Australia to fulfill their vision of a world where everyone has a safe and decent place to live. Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, having a secure and healthy home has become more important than ever. 

All of the funds raised from this challenge will go directly towards Habitat’s Home Together Fund. This will allow Habitat for Humanity Australia to remain sustainable, and ensure they can continue to help those most in need, as soon as they are able to, in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

Your funds will have an incredible impact:

• $50 can purchase toolkits with picks and shovels to repair and build a safe home for children.

• $148 can train a mason who is then able to build houses in their community and provide a means to support their family.

• $500 pays for a Shelter Repair Kit, distributed to families to make minor repairs to their homes following a natural disaster. The kits include tarpaulins, hardware and basic tools.

• $3,000 can build a safe, secure home for families in need throughout Asia Pacific.

How challenging is this adventure?

The Cradle Mountain trek is ranked 3/5. While no extensive trekking experience is required prior to registering, our adventures are designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train. The trek is a physical challenge, and the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. 

You can expect the days to vary from easy exploration walks to day-long hikes over rough terrain. You should be able to walk comfortably for 6 – 8 hours over consecutive days. 

You will be well supported on the adventure, with the guides and your team all cheering you on. You are free to move at your own pace and we will take frequent breaks.

How do I fundraise?

Never fundraised before? Not sure where to start? No worries, we don’t expect you to do it alone. You will have regular support from the Inspired Adventures fundraising team, who will help you make a fundraising plan to meet your target. Alongside personalised coaching, we will also send you lots of ideas and resources on how to fundraise. From online fundraising to trivia nights, to bake sales and out-of-the-box ideas, we have years and years of tried and tested tips to make your fundraising a success.

Who will I be travelling with?

We believe small group travel is better for the planet, and better for you. Our adventures usually have 10 – 20 people aged from 18 to 90+ (younger ages considered on request). You can be sure that you have all come together with the shared purpose of making a difference to others and having the adventure of a lifetime.

The group will be led by a local tour guide with expert knowledge of the region. Many groups will also be accompanied by an Inspired Adventures team leader or doctor to support and motivate the team.

Where applicable, a charity representative may also join the team. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about your chosen charity and their work.

We understand the dilemma of making travel plans when the world feels unpredictable right now. You can still register for an Inspired Adventure in complete confidence, because we promise to look after you should COVID-19 travel bans affect your plans.

If COVID-19 travel bans mean your Inspired Adventure cannot go ahead as scheduled, we will endeavour to reschedule the departure to a later date to allow you still to travel as planned.
