“The most humbling and emotional time of my life with a group of people who share a common bond and believe in the future.”

— Trevor Neil King, 2019 Inspired Adventures participant

Neuroblastoma is the leading cause of death in children aged under five from cancer. There is an urgent need for better, safer and kinder treatments for these children to ensure they are given the chance to live a long and healthy life.

Trek2Cure Neuroblastoma Tasmania is your chance to join the fight against this rare disease and support vital research for a cure. 

On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you’ll spend five days trekking the spectacular trails surrounding Tasmania’s iconic Cradle Mountain. Challenged by a mix of steep inclines and steady descents, you’ll discover swathes of ancient rainforest, dramatic highland views and glacial lakes. As you trek, keep an eye out for native wildlife such as wombats and Tasmanian devils that roam the area.

Together with a team of like-minded teammates, you’ll discover this must-see part of Australia and be rewarded knowing you are helping pave the way to a cure for neuroblastoma. Don’t miss your chance to make an incredible difference and help give every child the chance to grow up.

Neuroblastoma takes the lives of more children under five than any other cancer. There is only around 50% survival rate for those suffering the most aggressive types of this disease and of those who do survive, one third will suffer long term effects from their treatment. 

By joining this trek, you will be supporting world-class research into neuroblastoma. Despite what people may expect, children’s cancer research is far less well funded than adult cancer. The children affected by neuroblastoma are on average just two years old – too little to represent themselves but YOU can help.

Your extraordinary efforts will support Neuroblastoma Australia as they raise awareness and continue to fund breakthrough research for a cure. The funds you raise will help to support research leading to better survival rates and better quality of life for children with this devastating childhood cancer.

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.
