“It was an incredible experience where I learnt a lot about the land with a diverse group of inspiring people who all love to give back.”

— Andrew Ross, Stroke Foundation’s Larapinta adventure 2021

In 2020, over 27,400 Australians experienced a stroke for the first time – that’s one stroke every 19 minutes. Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers, yet more than 80 per cent of strokes can be prevented.

As part of this incredible adventure, you’ll trek the Great Ocean Walk to the Twelve Apostles and experience the inimitable majesty of the region.

Over three days, immerse yourself in some of Australia’s most iconic scenery as you trek beside sheer limestone cliffs that plunge dramatically into the sea, over coastal dunes and through towering mountain ash forest. As you explore pristine deserted beaches and look out at the wild waters that sank ships of old, fur seals will sun on the rocks and black cockatoos will fly high above.

Best of all, with every step you take, you’ll raise vital funds to increase awareness of stroke risk factors and signs, promote healthy lifestyles and fund life-saving research.

Stroke is one of Australia’s leading causes of death and disability. 

Stroke Foundation stands alongside stroke survivors and their families, healthcare professionals and researchers to build community awareness, foster new thinking and develop innovative treatments. They support stroke survivors and their families to live the best possible life after stroke, throughout the journey to recovery, as well as fund research into stroke treatment and care. 

As part of Stroke Foundation’s Great Ocean Walk, you’ll raise vital funds to increase awareness of stroke risk factors and signs, promote healthy lifestyles and fund life-saving research. 

• $45 pays for advice and support from a health professional on StrokeLine

• $75 provides a stroke recovery pack to three stroke survivors

• $137 trains a volunteer to deliver StrokeSafe community talks teaching the F.A.S.T signs of stroke

• $500 funds stroke scientists to find the next breakthrough in stroke research

How challenging is this adventure?

The Great Ocean Walk 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.

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.
