Big Burke & Wills Trek from the Dig Tree to Birdsville

The Big Burke & Wills Trek is a 330km 11 day multi-team trekking challenge travelling through south-western Queensland and north-eastern South Australia, from the Dig Tree (near Innamincka) to Birdsville.

For those who may be short on time or not sure about covering the whole 330km on foot, the Trek is also offering two shorter options, including a 5 day 160km and 5 day 142km option.

Everyone involved with the inaugural Big Burke & Wills Trek will be an integral member of a modern-day pioneering team making a vital contribution to the search for a cure for type 1 diabetes.
