Help Bendigo Health invest in home-grown ideas and deliver excellence in healthcare by taking part in our Japan Trek 2021 along the Nakasendo Trail.

The Nakasendo Trail, one of Japan’s ancient highways and now an iconic walking path, is unlike any bushwalk you’ve ever done. Imagine retracing to footsteps of the samurai, haiku masters and merchants on one of the most historic paths in Asia.

The Bendigo Health Japan Trek 2021 is your chance to discover the Nakasendo Trail and help us provide Victorians in the Loddon Mallee region with world-class healthcare. You’ll support home-grown healthcare innovations while trekking with our CEO and other people like yourself, people who want to make a difference and are willing to step outside the everyday routine – all in the name of adventure and giving back!

Make 2021 the year you do something life-changing – for yourself and for others.

Help Bendigo Health continue cultivating excellence. That’s why we’re launching our biggest fundraising event yet, the Japan Trek 2021, and hope you’ll join us in support of mental health.


Bendigo Health has been serving Victorians across the Loddon Mallee region for over 150 years. We believe all people, no matter where they live, should have access to the best in medical care.

Through joining our 2021 Japan Trek for Mental Health you will discover the ancient Nakasendo Trail all while helping Bendigo Health to improve Mental Health facilities, increase available services and offer complementary therapies. Excellent Care. Every Person. Every Time.

“Our future focus is to continue to improve our facilities, services and complimentary therapies such as our pet therapy program which has been so well received by our patients.”
– Clinical Director of Mental Health Services, Phil Tune
