Join the Peter Mac Larapinta Challenge 2021 with Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and help fund life-saving cancer research.

On this once-in-a-lifetime adventure, you’ll trek through the Australian outback on one of the most spectacular walking tracks in the world—the Larapinta Trail. 

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. Over 5 days, you will journey along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail, trekking over 60 kilometres. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers and the dramatic desert landscapes of the Red Centre.

By day, you’ll trek through the ochre-landscapes of the outback, witnessing the sacred sites of the Arrernte people and by night you’ll camp under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of native wildlife. Best of all, you’ll raise vital funds for lifesaving cancer research.

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 the Peter Mac Larapinta Challenge 2021, 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 Peter Mac has access to 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.
