Larapinta Trail Trek 2019

We’re launching our first charity challenge to trek the incredible Larapinta Trail in July 2019!

The challenge will help fund Pathways, our new program, formed out of our desire to offer young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities the opportunity to continue learning beyond their compulsory high school education; we believe everyone has the right to ongoing learning, to achieve their individual goals and engagement in purposeful and meaningful activities.

The legendary Larapinta Trail is regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres weaving along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges. We'll walk a portion of this legendary trail.

Over 7 spectacular days (from 1 July to 7 July 2019), you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.

Together, we can unlock the greatness of these young people and have fun while we do it!
