Join us as we take on the challenge of tackling some of the most remarkable parts of Australia’s Snowy Mountain ranges to raise funds for childhood cancer research.

This is an adventure like no other! Not only will you trek to the summit of Mt Kosciuszko, Australia’s highest mountain, but also tackle Dead Horse Gap and the twin Rams Head Peaks. As you put your body and mind to the test, you’ll be rewarded with unparalleled views of colossal mountainscapes, majestic alpine woodlands and the breath-taking expanse of endless open sky. See historic huts nestled in the mountainside and the crystal clear waters of Lake Cootapatamba, one of only size glacial lakes in Australia.

And the best part? As you conquer some of Australia’s highest peaks, you’ll be helping inspire action and accelerate solutions for children with cancer, bettering their survival outcomes.

It is estimated that over 950 Australian children are diagnosed with cancer each year, a number that can be hard to wrap your head around. Sadly, some of these children will not live to adulthood, and those who do survive are often left dealing with the side effects of these harsh treatments. When you join The Kids’ Cancer Project’s 3 Peaks Challenge, the funds you raise will make a huge impact, helping The Kids’ Cancer Project to fund bold scientific research to better the lives and survival outcomes of kids with cancer. 

In FY20/21, The Kids’ Cancer Project funded 46 scientists across 32 different projects, all dedicated to exploring new and bold treatments, with minimal side effects for the children. With your help, more innovation is just around the corner…

“The Kids’ Cancer Project is supporting a lot of vital, exciting, innovative work. They’re helping researchers to move quickly and aggressively to pursue new ideas that we hope are going to make a real difference.”

— Associate Professor Alex Swarbrick, Garvan Institute of Medical Research.

When you consider that $78 funds a global cancer specialist consultation on the best treatment for three kids, or that $222 covers the cost of freighting eight kids’ tumour samples to a specialist lab, it is no doubt that the $3,500 that you raise on the 3 Peaks challenge will go far.

How challenging is this adventure?

This adventure is ranked 3/5. 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 NSW 3 Peaks Challenge is a physical challenge, involving trekking approximately 33 kilometres over 3 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.

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.
