Trip Highlights:

  • Challenge yourself on one of Australia’s greatest walking trails in the majesty of the outback.
  • Be immersed in the traditional lands of the Arrernte people, and explore the country that is part of this 40,000-year-old culture.
  • Camp beneath a million stars with the sounds of nature surrounding you.

“I recommend the Larapinta Trail to everyone. It was hard, but worth it. The scenery and landscape are absolutely breathtaking.”

The funds raised will support essential initiatives that protect biodiversity and preserve the fragile ecosystems that make Australia unique.

Additionally, your support will amplify DEA’s advocacy efforts, pressing governments at all levels to take action against climate change. This is a crucial step in safeguarding our health and the environment from the escalating impacts of climate-related health issues, such as heatwaves and infectious diseases, which increasingly burden our healthcare system and cost Australia time and resources.

Together, we can pave the way for a greener and healthier Australia, where environmental preservation and human health go hand in hand.
