“An amazing, life-changing and humbling experience.”

Amy Parry, Inspired adventurer, 2018

Disaster and conflict can strike anywhere, at any time. But every family deserves a safe place to call home to recover.

In February 2023, you’re invited to trek the Great Ocean Walk to the Twelve Apostles, following well-worn paths far away from the hustle and bustle of the Great Ocean Road. 

Beside sheer limestone cliffs, over wind-sculpted sand dunes, through lush coastal bushland and onto pristine deserted beaches, you’ll experience the majesty of Victoria’s wild and rugged coastline, where fur seals sun on the rocks and black cockatoos fly high above.

Best of all, with every step you take, you’ll help ShelterBox Australia provide emergency shelter for families who have lost their homes to disaster or conflict.

As part of the ShelterBox Great Ocean Walk 2023, the funds you raise will help provide emergency shelter for families who have lost their homes to disaster or conflict. 

•  $30 lights the dark with a solar lamp
•  $50 prevents disease with a water filter
•  $100 gives a family basic shelter with a ShelterKit
•  $500 provides protection from the elements with a relief tent
•  $1,000 provides a ShelterBox to help families who’ve lost everything rebuild

Shelter is more than just a roof – it’s a home. It’s the foundation for life, for families, for communities. Through your fundraising and physical efforts, you’ll help build a world where no family goes without shelter after a disaster and provide the support and equipment necessary to rebuild.

Disasters don’t stop and neither do ShelterBox Australia. But they can’t do it alone. Join the ShelterBox Great Ocean Walk 2022 today and make a tangible difference to the lives of families impacted by disaster and conflict.

“Since ShelterBox began in 2000, your support has helped us provide shelter for more than one million people; a million people who not only have protection from the elements, but a place to call home.” – Alf Evans, ShelterBox Operations Manager

How challenging is this adventure?

The ShelterBox Great Ocean Walk 2022 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’ll enjoy the experience. 

You’ll 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.

Do I need to have travel insurance?

Travel insurance is highly recommended for domestic adventures, to cover cancellation, hospital, emergency evacuation and lost luggage. We advise that you purchase your policy as soon as possible. It’s up to you to ensure you have fully comprehensive travel insurance and you’ll need to share these details with our team before departure. For more information, please visit www.inspiredadventures.com.au/travel-insurance-information.

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.

For more information please refer to the COVID-19 hub on our website.
