Rosie is excited to be leading a fundraising walk along Australia’s most iconic desert trek, the ‘Larapinta Trail,’ in Central Australia for the Luke Batty Foundation.
You can join Rosie on this classic outback challenge in August 2017 and be a part of the Foundation’s fundraising and awareness raising efforts.
We can promise you a physical, emotional and spiritual journey.
The Larapinta Trail is one of the seven Great Walks of Australia and is now noted as one of the top ten walks in the world.
We follow an itinerary that will appeal to the active walker prepared to cover between six and sixteen kilometres each day, with plenty of options of side trips to the best spots in the area.
You will carry only a day pack, as we will be camping in stylish, exclusive and comfortable semi-permanent campsites, where exceptional facilities are set up and waiting for us.
These wilderness campsites add to the enjoyment of the Larapinta Trail, with heated lounge and dining facilities, hot showers, eco-toilet facilities, solar lighting, USB 12V Camera Battery charging and a host of sustainable facilities. When combined with exceptional food and fantastic guides, trekkers can just relax and enjoy the outback hospitality.
A support vehicle will transfer us between trail heads, allowing us to select walks that are the perfect balance of spectacular scenery and distance covered. The diversity of trail stages is impressive; at times the trail descends from the ridge line into narrow canyons where sheltered pockets of delicate fern and twisted gum trees grow from the dry rivers of sand. On other stages we walk to the impressive Simpsons Gap and Standley Chasm and other perfect vantage points from where we can trace the entire West MacDonnell Range.
Join Rosie Batty in 2017 on the Larapinta Trail and help raise awareness and funds for the Luke Batty Foundation.
