“ If I had to sum it up with one word, life-changing would be it, by far the best experience of my life to date.”
— Imran Kahn, Project Independence Larapinta 2021
Did you know there are over 250 Aussies with an intellectual disability waiting to get into a Project Independence home?
Join Project Independence in Tasmania and, with every step you take, you’ll raise vital funds to build more homes for people with an intellectual disability, empowering them to live as independently as possible.
Journeying into Tasmania’s unique, untamed wilderness, as part of this incredible adventure, you’ll discover the epic beauty of Cradle Mountain and experience the magnificence of Tasmania’s Wilderness World Heritage Area.
Through rainforest and wild moorland, to the top of waterfalls and around the base of majestic mountains, you’ll complete this adventure feeling tired, yet inspired by your efforts to improve access to home ownership for people with an intellectual disability in Australia.
As part of this incredible adventure, you’ll raise vital funds to help Australians with an intellectual disability gain access to home ownership and empower them to live as independently as possible.
In Australia, people living with an intellectual disability are among the least likely to attain home ownership. In many cases, this means they live in unsuitable or unsafe situations, negatively impacting their quality of life.
People with an intellectual disability are already pushed to the margins of society. But they deserve choice and control over where they live and the ability to access suitable, safe and affordable housing.
There are over 250 people on the Project Independence waitlist for independent housing across the ACT and Melbourne, many of whom currently live with family members who are unable to provide adequate care.
With every step you take as part of the Project Independence Cradle Mountain trek, you’ll help provide accommodation for people with an intellectual disability, and support their transition to independence.

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.
