“Fantastic experience with a great team of people on a sensational trek.”

Clyde Campbell, Shake It Up’s Trek for Treatment: Larapinta 2019

Come with us on this adventure to Tasmania and be part of a team making an incredible difference to the lives of people affected by Parkinson’s. On this 5-day adventure, you’ll be challenged to trek the Bay of Fires and explore one of Australia’s most beautiful coastlines. 

As you make your way along the windswept headlands and through natural woodlands, enjoy sweeping views over the coast and inland. You’ll marvel at the famous orange-hued granite boulders that line the shore, and the abundance of bird and marine life. Surrounded by vast stretches of pristine white sand and open ocean, you’ll enjoy a once-in-a lifetime experience while supporting vital research projects for Shake It Up Australia Foundation.

Sadly, Parkinson’s disease affects over 100,000 people in Australia and over 10 million worldwide. Unfortunately, there is no known cure for this disease but Shake It Up Australia Foundation has made it their mission to change this! 

By joining Shake It Up Bay of Fires 2021, you’ll be supporting Shake It Up Australia Foundation as they continue to fund cutting-edge Parkinson’s research in Australia. All of the funds raised from this adventure will go directly to dedicated research projects and clinical trials, aimed at finding better treatments, ways to slow and stop Parkinson’s progression, and ultimately to find a cure.

How challenging is this adventure?

This adventure is ranked 2/5. 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 Bay of Fires Trek is a physical challenge, involving trekking approximately 60 kilometres over 5 days. The fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the experience. 

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.

Inspired Adventures requires that all travellers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as described in government guidelines and ground operator requirements.
