Join the Larapinta trek and support people with Type 1 Diabetes

We’re offering the once in a lifetime opportunity to take on a stunning Larapinta trek for JDRF – the charity leading the fight against Type 1 Diabetes.

The Larapinta trail is one of the most exciting bush walking trails in the whole of Australia. It is a stunning walking track in the Northern Territory of Australia that covers over 223km in length. On this adventure you’ll get to see some of the most exciting elements of the track, exploring the majestic WestMacDonnell Ranges, Mount Zeil (the highest point in the Northern Territory) and Redbank Gorge as well as many other iconic natural landmarks. 

You’ll begin this once in a lifetime trek in Alice Springs, to explore this ruggedly

beautiful town in the heart of Central Australia and hear from Aranda Elders on the history of the area. From Alice Springs you’ll head into the wilderness, taking on one of Australia’s most famous and loved bushwalking trails.

As you do so, you’ll fall in love with Australia all over again and get a chance to immerse yourself in the wilderness.

This trek will all be for a very worthy cause – supporting those with Type 1 Diabetes. Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune disease destroying our body’s ability to process sugar by attacking the beta cells in our pancreas that produce the hormone insulin.

For people with Type 1 Diabetes (T1D), there is still no cure. This means that research into one, and research into how we can innovate technology to make life more bearable for those suffering is essential. 

JDRF – or the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation as they’re also known  – are at the cutting edge of Diabetes research and have worked for over 50 years to keep people healthy and safe until we find a cure for T1D. The funds raised on this trek will support research into the hereditary disease so that together we can turn Type 1 into Type none.
