Hiking in Kakadu and raising money for a worthwhile cause might sound like too many good things at once, but this year it’s being made possible. ‘Born to Trek: Explore Kakadu and Beyond’ is Save the Children Australia’s first domestic adventure volunteering program - with proceeds going to fund much-needed Indigenous projects.

Participants will spend three days hiking through dual World Heritage listed Kakadu National Park, soaking up the amazing views and encountering Kakadu’s wildlife as they cover Nourlangie, Barrk Walk, Gubara swimming holes, Maguk, Gunlom, Motor Car Creek and Yurmikmik!

After all that hard work they’ll finish with a half day canoe on the Katherine River.

The final full day of the visit involves a day at a Save the Children program in the Northern Territory to take part in the day-to-day running of the program.

Fundraising is easy via the online Everyday Hero site and more details are available at Save the Children.

We’re really excited to welcome the team in June, and delighted to assist in such an inspiring and worthwhile project. Maybe you’ll join them?
