“A trip that was more than my own personal challenge, ended up being a great change to bond with others and share a great experience.”

— Michelle Swan, R U OK Larapinta Trek 2019

Trek to Australia’s highest peak, the summit of Mount Kosciuszko with R U OK? to help start life-changing conversations and prevent suicide.

Suicide doesn’t discriminate. Every day across Australia, eight people die by suicide and at least another 30 attempt to end their own life.

Every one of these lives lost represents a partner, child, parent, friend or workmate.

Join Conquer Kozi 2021 and, with every step you take, you will help R U OK? inspire and empower meaningful connections and conversations with anyone struggling with life.

As part of this incredible adventure, you will trek to the summit of Australia’s highest mountain, through subalpine meadow dotted with white gentian flowers, past snow-weathered gums and around granite outcrops carved by glacial waters.

Standing at the peak of Mount Kosciuszko, staring out across untouched wilderness, you will feel tired, yet inspired by your effort to help start life-changing conversations.

With your support R U OK? can reach more Australians, inspire regular, meaningful conversations every day of the year and, ultimately, change lives.

As part of Conquer Kozi 2021, the funds you raise will help R U OK?:
Create new campaigns and free resources to inspire regular, meaningful conversations
Expand its reach to support more schools, workplaces and communities
Conduct more rigorous research and evaluation to continually improve its work

It’s not always easy to continue a conversation when someone says they’re not ok. But, with every step you take to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko, you’ll help R U OK? better prepare people for life-changing conversations.

How challenging is this adventure?

The Mount Kosciuszko 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. 

As part of this adventure, you will trek 14 kilometres along well-worn paths over 4–5 hours.

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.
