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.
On 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 raise vital funds for Mater Dei Foundation to help give young adults with an intellectual disability the tools and skills to set their paths for the future; a future where they will be able to use each of their unique talents to their full capacity in our community.
Every dollar raised on this incredible adventure will go towards ‘Work and Community Pathways’, a new program that launched at Mater Dei in January 2018.
The program was formed out of the desire to offer young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities the opportunity to continue learning beyond their compulsory high school education. Mater Dei believes everyone has the right to ongoing learning, to achieve their individual goals and engage in purposeful and meaningful activities.
