5 day trip, 4 day challenge
Join our Walk for Change exploring the scenic Bay of Fires in the name of creating safer futures for women and children impacted by domestic violence.
You can make a real impact, helping more women access free legal and social work support through Women’s Legal Service Queensland (WLSQ) and ensuring they have a place to turn to.
To raise these funds, WLSQ is embarking on the Walk for Change, an epic Tasmanian trekking adventure. On this five-day adventure, you’ll explore Tasmania’s incredible Bay of Fires, one of the most stunning landscapes in all of Australia. Walking along pure white sands and breathtaking headlands, take in the scenery of the fire-red granite that makes this region world famous.
The Difference You'll Make
One in six Australian women has experienced physical or sexual violence from a current or former partner.
The funds you raise on the Walk for Change will assist WLSQ to help more women and their children.
The WLSQ Statewide Helpline is often the first point of contact for women seeking assistance, or their last resort when there are no other options. Currently, the Helpline answers 55 calls per day from women in need of support, equating to over 13,000 answered calls per year. Sadly, due to resourcing and community need, 1 in 3 calls can’t be answered.
By joining the Walk for Change you will make a positive difference as all funds raised will go directly to the life changing and lifesaving work of WLSQ.

Launceston to St Helens
It’s time for your epic trekking adventure in the beautiful surrounds of Tasmania! Your adventure starts today with a departure from Launceston, where you’ll meet your fellow teammates and guide. From here, we head east to the bayside town of St Helens, known for its seafood delights just offshore. Grab some lunch (at your own expense), and then we’ll continue to the Bay of Fires Conservation Area located up the coast.
We begin by visiting the area known as The Gardens. The Gardens lie about halfway between Ansons and Binalong bays and are made up of boardwalks and lookout platforms across bright white sands, fiery lichen boulders and water clear right to the seabed. We head back down to Binalong Bay, then start our first trek from Skeleton Point to Dora Point. We follow a trail that meanders from forest to rocky headlands. Along the way, learn the history behind this memorable stretch of coastline. Each headland will reveal how the Bay of Fires is one of the few places that actually lives up to itineraries that call it one of Australia’s greatest natural beauties. After a big first day, it’s time to return to St Helens to relax at our accommodation and enjoy dinner with the group.
