The Difference You'll Make
Refugees do not choose to leave their homes willingly. They are forced to flee because of persecution, war, conflict, or natural disaster. Recently, we saw the catastrophic impact of the war in Ukraine forcing millions from home. We also watched on in horror as we saw the devastating series of earthquakes that decimated parts of Syria and Türkiye.
We can and must do something to tackle it. Your support can make a significant difference in the lives of displaced people around the world, though. By participating in the Trek for Refugees, you can help provide critical assistance to people who have been forced to flee their homes.
By sharing your journey and the stories of the people you meet along the way, you can help to create greater understanding and empathy for the millions of people around the world who have been displaced from their homes. And, as you take action and walk in solidarity with the millions of people who have been forced from home, you will send a strong message of hope and commitment to tackling this crisis.

Day 1: Sunday 21 April, 2024
Adelaide to Mount Remarkable National Park
Welcome to your Flinders Ranges adventure! We have an early start today, meeting in the Adelaide CBD at 8:00am, where we will meet our fellow adventurers and guide. From here, we drive the 3 hours to Mount Remarkable National Park, renowned for its rugged mountain ranges and iconic exposed red quartzite. For our introduction to this region, we’ll be tackling the Daveys Gully Hike, a fairly short loop offering breathtaking views into the Alligator Basin and across Spencer Gulf. This afternoon, we make our way to our accommodation and enjoy our first team dinner together.

Day 2: Monday 22 April, 2024
Black Gap to Wilpena Pound (Ikara)
Our first full day of trekking is a spectacular one, as we make our way from Black Gap to Wilpena, via the famed Heysen Trail. The day contains a steep ascent from the southern slopes of Wilpena Pound and making our way across the valley floor. Here, we’ll experience a surprising amount of vegetation, including giant eucalypts. In fact, the entire area is a haven for emus, kangaroos, and several species of native birds. Wilpena Pound is a marvel, and we’ll be returning tomorrow for some further exploration.

Wilpena Pound (Ikara)
What better way to start the day than with a hike through the stunning landscapes of Wilpena Pound (Ikara), the breathtaking natural amphitheatre that is the centrepiece of Flinders Ranges National Park. Kicking off from the historic Aroona Homestead, we follow a well carved trail through the landscapes that inspired the iconic paintings of South Australian artist Hans Heysen. Passing by dry creek beds and walking through a dramatic valley, today is a day you won’t soon forget.

Day 4: Wednesday 24 April, 2024
Mt Ohlssen Bagge and Yura Udnyu Walking Tour
Today will be spent tackling Mt Ohlssen Bagge, one of the most celebrated walks in the Flinders Ranges. This return hike has some steep and challenging sections, so prepare for rocky terrain and a continuous uphill climb. Before long, you’ll see that your efforts were worth it, as while the whole walk offers up unforgettable views, the view from the top simply can’t be beat. Afterwards, we will join an Aboriginal Guide on an informative stroll to Old Wilpena Station, one of Australia’s oldest and best preserved pastoral settlements. On this walk, our guide will share ancient stories of the landscape that have been passed down from generation to generation, while providing insight into the biodiversity of the region and the life it sustains. The guide will also educate us on the relationship between the land and the Adnyamathanha people as the site holds deep rooted cultural significance.

Day 5: Thursday 25 April, 2024
Flinders Ranges - Clare Valley - Adelaide
It is time to leave the magnificent scenes of Wilpena Pound behind and begin our journey back to Adelaide. Aside from its fantastic walking trails, South Australia is also renowned for its wine. We make a stop in the famous Clare Valley wine region, taking some time to stop for lunch and a visit to a local winery. Here you’ll have the chance to taste some of the wonderful wine, explore the vineyard on foot, or just sit back and enjoy the peaceful setting. While here, your guide will fill you in on the fascinating history of producing wine in this part of the country. After a wonderful final afternoon together, we continue on to Adelaide. You can expect to arrive at around 4.30pm, at which point your adventure will come to an end.
