Australia Charity Challenges

From sunburnt outback and snowcapped peaks to wild rivers, hidden gorges, ancient rainforests and endless coastline, the Australian landscape is so diverse and so striking, it demands venturing out to discover by foot, bike or paddle—the perfect match for your next charity challenge!

Raise money for your favourite cause as you hike the classic Larapinta Trail—one of the world’s greatest desert treks, or complete the iconic Overland Track through the pristine Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.

Tackle the Jatbula Trail, an outstanding full-pack trek along the Arnhem Land escarpment, or follow the Bibbulmun Track, one of the world’s great long-distance trails, as it stretches more than 1,000 km from the Perth Hills to historic Albany.

Hike deep into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, tick the Tarkine Rainforest or the Bay of Fires off your bucket list, or take a life-changing rafting expedition down the majestic Franklin River.

Our charity challenge experts can create a customised itinerary for your group or can match you with one of our upcoming challenges. Get in touch today and start planning your Australian adventure for a cause!

A custom made itinerary is the ultimate way to see the world how YOU want. They are created especially for you, giving you complete freedom to choose what you want to see, where you want to go and when you want to do it. If you love our current itineraries but want to customise it privately as a couple, a group of friends, family, club, business or school, you have the freedom to add or remove as many elements as you like to suit the interests of your group. Alternatively, you can start with a blank canvas and create a new and exciting itinerary from scratch! Our well-travelled consultants can give you firsthand suggestions and eliminate any uncertainty with trip planning to ensure you maximise the quality of your experience and get truly off the beaten track. Simply email, phone or visit us to start planning your dream adventure.


No Fees for Charities

Unlike many other charity challenge providers, we do not charge charities service fees to operate a challenge, allowing you to raise more funds.

Custom Challenges

We offer you flexibility to customise a charity challenge to suit your needs and budget. Choose your own destination, departure date and charity.

Responsible Travel

For us it is important that our charity challenges protect the cultures and environments we visit - so sustainability is central to our planning.

Authentic experiences

Our range of activte itineraries covers some of the most dramatic and inspiring landscapes across Australia. From hikes in the rugged Red Centre and lush forest escapes to cycling in Tasmania and rafting the Franklin River, our adventures allow you to discover the pristine wilderness under your own steam.

Ultimate value

Our Australian adventures offer exceptional value for money incorporating as many inclusions as possible in every tour such as meals, transport, entrance fees and permits.


 

Eco-campsites

We have built four semi-permanent campsites along the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia, in conjunction with the traditional landowners and Northern Territory Parks, allowing us to minimise our environmental footprint while benefiting the local communities.

Ecotourism certification

Many of the itineraries offered by Tasmanian Expeditions and Australian Walking Holidays have achieved Ecotourism Certification at the ECO IV level. The ECO Certification Program is a world first and has been developed to address the need to identify genuine nature and ecotourism operators.

Indigenous tourism

We are continually pioneering experiences with Aboriginal communities to empower them to develop cultural tourism as a means of income. Indigenous tourism educates travellers by giving them unique insights into the Aboriginal culture, which in turn fosters understanding and tolerance.
