One of the most rewarding experiences of my life

James Toomey, 2018 participant

Join Peter Mac’s 4 Peaks Trek 2022 and with every step you take, you’ll help accelerate cancer research and fund life-saving cancer breakthroughs.

On this extraordinary adventure, you’ll spend four days following one of Australia’s most renowned hiking trails to the summit of four of Victoria’s highest peaks; Mount Stirling, Mount Feathertop, Mount Dunn and Mount Bogong. Through stunning mountain ash forest and between snow weathered gums, you’ll experience the sparse beauty that makes Victoria’s Alps a must-see Australian destination.

Embark on this epic adventure knowing you’ve raised vital funds to help Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation accelerate cancer research and give new hope to all people affected by cancer.

The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation’s mission is to enhance the ability of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to achieve better health outcomes for people with cancer. The Foundation provides funds to help make new life-saving discoveries possible so that every person with cancer has the best chance of a cure.

As a participant of Peter Mac’s 4 Peaks Trek 2022, you will:

— Give leading researchers the specialised resources they need to discover cancer cures
— Provide seed funding to help internationally recognised researchers explore bold new research ideas that could change the way we think about cancer
— Help ensure we have access to a sustainable source of income, that will support our work for generations to come

Every donation, whether large or small, plays an important role in Peter Mac’s work. By supporting Peter Mac, you will help enable life-saving cancer research and give new hope to all people affected by cancer.

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 Peter Mac Four Peaks Trek 2022 is a physical challenge, involving trekking in hilly terrain for up to seven hours over three consecutive days. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. We recommend that in the months leading up to your trip, you increase your physical fitness with aerobic exercise.

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.
