The Difference You'll Make

Property Industry Foundation logo

Not every young person is able to live with their family.

Last year, almost 40,000 young people presented to a specialist homeless service looking for medium or longer-term accommodation.

Only 5,000 of those young people were provided with accommodation, 7,000 were referred to other services.

And sadly, over 24,000 young people were unable to be helped at all due to lack of accommodation.

Homelessness is one of the most severe forms of disadvantage, impacting a young person's health, well-being, education and employment opportunities long term.

The Property Industry Foundation brings together the property and construction industry in a unique collaboration to have a tangible impact on youth homelessness. The Foundation's mission is to increase the number of bedrooms available for homeless youth and support initiatives that have a tangible impact on youth homelessness. This is done through partnerships with other charities, companies and staff in the property and construction industry.

- $4,000 can fit out of a bathroom in a new home build

- $5,000 can provide the big 4 appliances (fridge, stove, dishwasher, washing machine) for a kitchen in a new home build

- $10,000 will create a quiet outdoor space (typically valued at $20K) in our 50/50 building model which effectively takes every $1 raised and doubles its value.

- $20,000 can provide a bathroom in a new home build

- $25,000 can provide a kitchen in a new home build

- $50,000 can provide a bedroom (typically valued at $100K) in our 50/50 building model which effectively takes every $1 raised and doubles its value

Take on the ancient volcanic terrain of the Scenic Rim and help us to deliver a safe and secure bed for every young Australian.

Day 2: Saturday 20 April 2024 Mt Mitchell and Mt Cordeaux

After breakfast at our accommodation, we set off for a long day of trekking at Mt Mitchell and Mt Cordeaux. Mt Mitchell is a volcanic peak in the Main Range National Park to the south of Cunningham’s Gap and today we will be conquering its summit. While some parts of the track are quite steep, we can rest assured that the view from the top makes every step worth it! Crossing through mountain heath, woodland and diverse rainforest, we reach the top and admire views of Mt Barney, Main Range and the Moogerah Peaks before we make our way back down the mountain to get ready for our next summit!

Next up is Mt Cordeaux, located on the northern side of Cunningham’s Gap and overlooking the Scenic Rim. Following the track up the mountain, we will pass an abandoned mineshaft and continue along up the track until we reach the end. We are rewarded for our efforts with showstopping views of the Main Range National Park, the Darling Downs and even the high-rise buildings of Brisbane in the distance. While descending, we join the Rainforest Circuit and climb to a lookout point offering views of Lake Moogerah and the Fassifern Valley before completing our descent. The trip concludes here as we say our goodbyes and make our way back home.

About the adventure

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 Scenic Rim trek is a physical challenge, involving trekking approximately 20 kilometres over one day. 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 many people will be on my adventure? 

We believe small group travel is better for the planet, and better for you. Our adventures average between 10 - 20 participants, connected by their commitment to the greater good.

Can I join an Inspired Adventure on my own?

Of course, most people do! Throughout your adventure journey, we will connect you with your fellow adventurers so you can get to know each other before you hit the road.

What is the general age range of participants?

The minimum age for this adventure is 18, however younger ages are considered on application. We have had participants aged 16–84+ take part in our challenges, all united by their sense of philanthropy and adventure.

Fitness and training

How do I train for this adventure? 

We will provide you with information on how to prepare for your adventure when you register. In addition, we recommend that you consult your GP and a personal trainer to develop a training plan that will prepare you for the challenge.

As part of your training, we recommend making use of your free time to complete several day hikes. You should aim to be able to walk in sandy and hilly terrain for 5+ hours comfortably and get up and do it again the next day.

It is sensible to start training as early as possible before you go on your trek. 


What is the accommodation like? 

You will be staying in motel accommodation based on single rooms, set within a private nature refuge. Each room has a bathroom containing a toilet, shower and basin. Each room also contains a microwave, mini fridge, kettle and toaster. 

Will I be sharing accommodation?

Accommodation on this adventure is based on single occupancy. You will be staying in self-contained motel accommodation. 

I’m travelling with a friend, can we stay together?

Absolutely! If you’re travelling with a friend, please make note of this and we will pair you together.

What to expect

I have dietary requirements, will I be catered for? 

Of course, we will happily arrange for any dietary requirements you’ve noted during booking to be catered for. Please advise your local guide on Day 1 as well. You will be fed very well while you’re on the adventure, but if you have a very specific dietary requirement or severe allergies, often it’s best to pack some extra things as back-up.

What happens if there is a medical emergency?

Providing the safest possible environment is our highest priority and we have an outstanding safety record. All Inspired Adventures guides are first aid trained and well-equipped to handle any medical emergencies.


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.

What happens if I don’t meet my fundraising target? 

It’s normal to worry you won’t meet your fundraising target, but we know you can do it. In fact, with the support of Inspired Adventures, almost everyone goes on to raise far more than they imagined. 

By registering for the adventure, you agree to raise the minimum fundraising amount specified. Like you, we are looking to make a significant impact for our charity partners, so the goal is for each person to have met their fundraising target before departure. If you fail to raise the minimum fundraising target by this time, we will review the situation on a case-by-case basis.

I’m travelling with a friend, can we fundraise together? 

Absolutely! Fundraising with a friend is a great idea. Just remember the fundraising target is per person, so you will each need to meet the minimum fundraising goal to participate. We know you can do it.

Will the funds raised go directly to The Property Industry Foundation? 

Yes, all of your fundraising will go directly to The Property Industry Foundation. Only the travel costs are payable to Inspired.

Is my donation tax-deductible?

The funds raised for The Property Industry Foundation are tax-deductible (conditions apply).

Payments, cancellations and refunds

How much does it cost to participate in this adventure? 

The total cost to participate in this adventure is $1,100.

In addition, you are also committing to raising $5,000 (per person) for The Property Industry Foundation.

What happens if I need to cancel?

If you find yourself unable to attend, please notify us as soon as possible.

  • Cancellations more than 90 days prior to departure will receive a full refund minus the $950 deposit.
  • Cancellations within 90 days of departure will receive no refund. Please contact us and we can assist with writing you an insurance letter to claim your refund.

Travel insurance

Do I need to have insurance?

Travel insurance is highly recommended for domestic adventures to cover cancellation, hospital, emergency evacuation and lost luggage. We recommend purchasing your policy as soon as possible. It is up to you to ensure you have fully comprehensive travel insurance and you will need to share these details with our team before departure. For more information, please visit

"This was a wonderful experience for me even though I was considerably older than the group I believe the group dynamic was inspiring and joyful at all times. Our Team leader and Guide displayed the best examples of generous, creative and supportive practice I have ever seen. The ease in which all members were able to converse, relate and encourage each other again was exceptional. Our safety throughout the experience was always considered, additional experiences and activities were very much appreciated."
