Join the Save the Children Australia’s Larapinta Challenge for an extraordinary five-day trekking adventure on the Larapinta Trail. You’ll meet like-minded supporters, explore the best of the Outback and raise funds so that all children have a chance the bright future they deserve.

The Save the Children Australia Larapinta Challenge will take you along parts of the iconic Larapinta Trail, the length of which stretches the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges from the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder. Over five days of trekking, you will cover more than 60 kilometres of this iconic track. 

This adventure is fully-supported and you’ll trek with local guides and your team of Save the Children supporters. Together you’ll discover the spectacular ochre-coloured sights of the Red Centre by day and camp under a blanket of stars at night. You’ll complete a challenging ascent of Mount Sonder and trek into the heart of Ormiston Pound.
