The Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. 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. As part of this challenge you will trek over 60kms of the trail.
On this incredible—yet challenging—adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia.
You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.
By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
Best of all, with every step you take, you will help raise vital funds for Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria and Tasmania to support the ever-changing needs of seriously ill children and their families.
Every dollar raised on this challenge will help keep the Ronald McDonald Houses in Victoria and Tasmania open 24 hours a day, every day of the year, and ensure financial contribution required from the families who stay with us remains as low as possible. To do so, we need to raise over 5 million dollars every year to keep all four houses operating. We receive no government funding; instead, we rely solely on the support of passionate people like you.
By fundraising for Ronald McDonald House Charities Victoria & Tasmania, you will be providing comfort, support and some of the most basic human essentials to families caring for seriously ill children.
