Join UNICEF Trek for Kids: Larapinta 2020 and trek through the Australian outback on one of the most spectacular walking trails. With every-step you take, your support will open a world of opportunity for children, so they can achieve their full potential.

The UNICEF Trek for Kids: Larapinta 2020 is your chance to take on an unforgettable adventure trek in Australia’s Red Centre. You’ll be part of an incredible team making an immediate and lasting impact on children’s lives. Wherever and whenever there is a crisis, UNICEF strives to reach children and families with life-saving resources and provides food, water, shelter, protection and support.

On this adventure, you will trek the legendary Larapinta Trail, regarded as one of Australia’s premier walking tracks. From the old Alice Springs Telegraph Station to the peak of Mount Sonder, the trail stretches 223 kilometres along the backbone of the West MacDonnell Ranges. Over 5 days, you will journey along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail, trekking over 60 kilometres. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and explore the beautiful mountains, valleys, rivers and the dramatic desert landscapes of the Red Centre.

By day, you’ll trek through the ochre-landscapes of the outback, witnessing the sacred sites of the Arrernte people and by night you’ll camp under the stars, falling asleep to the sounds of native wildlife. 

Best of all, you’ll be raising vital funds for UNICEF Australia to ensure that no child goes without basic needs or dies of a preventable cause.

The funds raised through the UNICEF Trek for Kids: Larapinta will have an immediate and lasting impact on children’s lives. You will help UNICEF to be there for children wherever the need is greatest, every time.

We want to see a world where no child goes without basic needs or dies of a preventable cause. Where no childhood is robbed of learning, joy or safety. Where conflict and disaster doesn’t cost a child their lifetime.

We do it because UNICEF believes in a fair chance for every single child, without exception. It’s why our teams are committed to the dangerous work of reaching children in conflict; why our staff will cross rivers and deserts to reach children in the world’s most remote communities.

When emergencies fade from the headlines and when poverty threatens children with a lifetime of disadvantage, UNICEF is there. And we won’t stop until the world is a safe place for every child.
