23-28 August 2023
6 day trip, 4 day challenge
Twin-share in 4-star hotel and comfortable camping
Join Starlight Children's Foundation on the Larapinta Trail and, with every step you take, you’ll raise funds for Starlight’s Healthier Futures Initiative, supporting the health and wellbeing of kids in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across Australia.
Immersed in the rich history of Australia’s First Peoples, as part of Starlight Outback Trek 2023, you’ll follow well-worn, red dirt tracks along the slopes of the West MacDonnell Ranges, beside ancient winding riverbanks, across open plains, over towering mountains and into shaded gorges.
Best of all, with every step you take, you’ll raise vital funds to build trust and lasting relationships between health professionals and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander kids and their communities through song, dance and storytelling.
The Difference You'll Make
The funds you raise as part of Starlight’s Outback Trek 2023 will support Starlight’s Healthier Futures Initiative.
As part of this initiative, Captain Starlight travels to regional and remote areas across the Northern Territory, Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland, visiting almost 1,400 children every month. Captain Starlight builds trust and sparks lasting relationships between health professionals, kids and the community, easing stress and pressure on healthcare clinics.
Starlight believes fun fights fear and wins every time. By engaging with kids through song, dance and storytelling, Starlight has helped boost health clinic attendance and increased community confidence in the healthcare system.
- $2,500 helps fly Captain Starlight to a remote health clinic
- $250 will pack a suitcase of fun for Captain Starlight to take to kids in remote communities
- $30 will deliver an arts and craft pack to a child in a remote community
Did you know, 96 per cent of health professionals who collaborate with Starlight in the Northern Territory through the Healthier Futures Initiative program rate the impact of Starlight’s programs on children as significant?
All children deserve to feel safe and supported when accessing health care. And, as part of this incredible adventure, you can help make this happen.
