Join UN Women Australia on the Larapinta Trail, as you Trek for Rights to support initiatives that empower women and promote gender equality.
Get ready to immerse yourself in the rugged beauty of the West MacDonnell Ranges.
Located in Australia’s Red Centre, on this six-day adventure, you’ll trek sections of the iconic Larapinta Trail, one of the most popular wilderness walks in Australia. Following the red rock slopes of the West MacDonnell Ranges, you’ll explore the breathtaking landscapes that make this world-renowned trek a National Geographic favourite.
From awe-inspiring gorges and expansive plains to towering mountains and snaking rivers, you’ll trek scenic paths to the heart of the Red Centre and experience a connection to Country unattainable anywhere else in Australia.
To ensure you experience the inimitable majesty and rich history of the Red Centre, we’ve curated a quintessentially Outback adventure that takes in the best sections along the trail.
By day, you’ll explore significant sights, including the limestone hills of the Finke River, the unique natural amphitheatre that is Ormiston Pound and climb to the summit of Mount Sonder (1,380m) for incredible, panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, plains, valleys and salt lakes below. At night, you’ll retreat to a bush camp and spend your evenings sitting around a campfire with like-minded adventurers before falling asleep under a star-filled sky.
Most importantly, the funds you raise from the Trek for Rights will help women in Australia and across the globe have a second chance at an education, creating pathways to quality jobs and helping to lift them out of the cycle of poverty.
A truly soulful experience, you will reminisce on this once-in-a-lifetime adventure for years to come.
