Hike the Larapinta Trail Charity Challenge

September 2023

Expressions of interest due 30 September 2022.

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 this 7-day adventure, 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.

By taking on this challenge you will be helping the South Australian Museum preserve its vital collections for future generations, including the most comprehensive collection of Aboriginal artefacts in the world. If you are interested in participating in the Larapinta Trail Charity Challenge, please click here for more information or contact us directly on 0438 117 500 or email: foundation@samuseum.sa.gov.au by 30 September 2022.
