“This trek made me believe the human spirit is amazing and anything is possible”

Cindy Tan, Larapinta Trek for Stroke Foundation 2021

A thriving rural paradise in the foothills of Queensland’s Great Dividing Range, the Scenic Rim has to be seen to be believed. Over four days, you’re invited to witness the epic beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforests – the most extensive region of subtropical rainforests in the world. Following world-class walks beside watering holes and waterfalls, along ancient escarpments and across volcanic plateaus, you’ll experience the combined native history of over 180 million years; from a time before Australia existed and this incredible rainforest covered one fifth of the Earth’s surface. By day, you will immerse yourself in the unique treasure trove of flora and fauna, and at night, you’ll relax in comfort and enjoy dinner, drinks and conversation with like-minded people.

Best of all, with every step you take as part of this incredible adventure, you’ll raise vital funds to help Stroke Foundation prevent, treat and beat stroke.

Stroke is one of Australia’s biggest killers and a leading cause of disability – every nineteen minutes, someone in Australia experiences a stroke. Yet most strokes can be prevented.

Stroke Foundation stands alongside survivors of stroke and their families, healthcare professionals and researchers, to build community awareness, foster new thinking and develop innovative treatments. They support survivors 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 Scenic Rim for Stroke Foundation 2022, 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 survivors of stroke

$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 Scenic Rim 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. 

You can expect the days to vary from easy exploration walks to day-long hikes over rough terrain. You should be able to walk comfortably for 6–8 hours over consecutive days. 

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.

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.
