“I never thought I’d laugh so hard with a group of such new friends from different backgrounds.”

Sarah, Inspired adventurer, 2018

As part of this life-changing adventure, you’ll trek some of Australia’s most renowned hiking trails through towering mountain ash forest to the summit of Victoria’s highest peak. 

Inspired by expansive views and daring ridgelines, you’ll trek for four days over Mount Stirling, Mount Feathertop and Mount Bogong in Victoria’s exquisite alpine region. Past Craig’s Hut – made famous in The Man from Snowy River, through abandoned gold mining towns and between weathered snow gums, you’ll embark on an epic adventure knowing you’ve raised funds to help Pancare Foundation find vital cancer research.

Upper gastrointestinal cancers, including pancreatic, liver, stomach, biliary and oesophageal cancers, have some of the lowest survival rates and little has changed in treatment and care over the last 40 years.  

Low investment in research and reduced community awareness have contributed to a lack of early detection and limited treatment options.

It’s Pancare Foundation’s mission to ensure people living with upper gastrointestinal cancers are no longer forgotten – and that improved survival rates can be achieved.

“With the right level of investment, substantial progress can be made to improve support and survival rates for people living with these forgotten cancers.” – Doug Hawkins, Pancare Foundation, CEO

With your support, Pancare Foundation can partner with world-class research programs, such as the Upper Gastrointestinal Cancer Registry (UGICR) to help inspire greater awareness, early detection and the adoption of clinical best practice across Australia. 

Just $200 can fund one day of UGICR research into the causes, treatment and cures for upper gastrointestinal cancers and $1,000 funds one week of research!

Your fundraising and physical efforts will make a life-changing difference in the lives of Australians with upper gastrointestinal cancers and their families.

How challenging is this adventure?

This adventure is ranked 3.5/5. While no extensive trekking experience is required prior to registering, our adventures are specifically designed for people who are relatively fit and willing to train. The 4 Peaks is a physical challenge, involving trekking in hilly terrain for up to seven hours over four consecutive days. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. 

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.

Do I need to have travel insurance? 

Travel insurance is highly recommended for domestic adventures, to cover cancellation, hospital, emergency evacuation and lost luggage. We advise that you purchase your policy as soon as possible. It’s up to you to ensure you have fully comprehensive travel insurance and you’ll need to share these details with our team before departure. For more information, please visit www.inspiredadventures.com.au/travel-insurance-information.

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.

Inspired Adventures requires that all travellers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as described in government guidelines and ground operator requirements.

For more information please refer to the COVID-19 hub on our website.
