Raise vital funds for Youngcare and challenge yourself like never before! The Simpson Desert trek is the ultimate challenge for keen adventurers, over 11 days from May 25th to June 4th 2017 (8 days of trekking).

You will be walking more than 250km across the rugged landscape of the desert, the isolated environment providing a striking reflection of the challenges that young people with high care needs face every day.

This trek will be a daily, mental and physical challenge, but it is one that will have a profound impact on the lives of young Aussies in desperate need.
