The Larapinta Trail is 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.

As part of the Walk4BrainCancer – Larapinta Trail, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.

By day, you will experience the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous peoples. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars, all while helping Cure Brain Cancer achieve their mission to increase survival rates.

Did you know? Brain cancer kills more Australian children than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer.

It costs approximately $50,000 to fund one patient on a clinical trial. Cure Brain Cancer has several clinical trials that it has committed to funding that will potentially provide innovative treatments to patients.

Our mission is to increase five-year survival to 50% by 2023. It’s a bold target, but with your support we can make a difference.
