In 2021 ABM in conjunction with inspired adventures are conducting a trek on the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia of 70km over a week. It is to raise funds for community projects such as providing seeds for Kenyan Farmers, teaching materials for literacy classes in PNG, water tanks and wells and in our own country to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education in Mental Health (Suicide Prevention). It may or may not be something you would consider doing, but you may know of someone who may like to go.
Join ABM as they trek the Larapinta Trail in 2021 to raise funds to create holistic, long-lasting solutions to poverty and injustice. On this 7-day adventure, discover the inspiring wilderness of the Northern Territory as you follow one of Australia’s iconic premier walking tracks. Beginning your journey in Alice Springs, you’ll follow the trail as it traverses the dramatic West MacDonnell Mountain Ranges, surrounded by vast stretches of ancient bush and red desert plains. Whilst the trek can be rocky at times, expect to be rewarded with incredible 360° views of the Red Centre. Along the way, learn about the traditional culture of the Arrente people and see some of their sacred sites, an unforgettable element of the experience. And best of all, with every step you’ll be raising funds to support ABM in their mission to help communities in Australia and around the world to make a new start.
