The Challenge

Everyone deserves access to excellent eye care. Yet too many people experience vision impairment or blindness because they didn’t have access to the care that would potentially save their sight.

But you can help change this.

Join the ANZEF Cape to Cape Trek 2023 and discover the rugged and beautiful West Australian coast in pursuit of addressing the imbalance in eye health equity, access, and education.

Traversing the south-west corner of Western Australia, 250 kilometres south of Perth, the Cape to Cape Track stretches the length of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

From Perth to Cape Mentelle, across the Margaret River and through Boranup Forest, this adventure is a true feast for the senses. You’ll witness incredible views of the Indian Ocean, marvel at some of the world’s oldest hardwoods and enjoy the company of like-minded RANZCO members committed to a more sustainable, equitable system of eye care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Māori, and Pasifika Peoples, and communities across the Asia-Pacific that are unable to access specialist eye care.



"Excellent experience! I enjoyed all aspects of the trip and would highly recommend to everyone to undertake a challenge like this."

— Maria Morton, 2018

"The most humbling and emotional time of my life with a group of people who share a common bond and believe in the future."

— Trevor Neil King, 2019

The Difference You'll Make


Everyone deserves access to the best level of eye care, regardless of where they live, or their cultural or socio-economic background.

ANZEF is working tirelessly to deliver better eye health outcomes across Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. But we need your help.


As part of the ANZEF Cape to Cape Trek 2023, you’ll raise vital funds to support life-changing projects that improve eye health and access to culturally safe eye care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, Māori, and Pasifika Peoples, as well as for rural and regional communities.

With every step you take along the rugged West Australian coast, you’ll enable ANZEF to partner with local ophthalmologists, researchers, educators, and other health professionals and ensure projects operate for as long as required.

From registration to destination, your fundraising and physical effort will promote recognition and awareness of eye health issues and help prevent avoidable blindness for those most at risk. You’ll also empower ANZEF to grow and support the First Nations eye health workforce in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, to address the cultural, social and economic barriers to eye health care and promote improved understanding through education and advocacy.
