Explore Australia's Cradle Mountain in 2020

Cradle Mountain sits in the stunning Tasmania Wilderness World Heritage Area and is one of Australia’s premier trekking destinations.

Rocky mountain peaks, buttongrass moorlands, glacial lakes, waterfalls and dense rainforest are hallmarks of this natural haven.

On this adventure, you’ll spend five-days trekking a variety of trails around the Cradle Mountain Village area. From easy exploration walks to day-long hikes up to lookouts, you’ll discover the Tasmanian wilderness up close on this unforgettable adventure.

Best of all, you’ll raise funds to support ShelterBox Australia on our mission to help families rebuild their lives after a disaster.

    Disasters can strike anywhere, at any time. Having somewhere dry and warm to sleep, to prepare meals and be with your family is vital for starting the long process of rebuilding your life.

    Our signature ShelterBoxes and ShelterKits contain the tools to transform lives and rebuild communities after a disaster or crisis. The funds you raise on this challenge can provide shelter from the elements, clean water to prevent illness, solar light for safety, blankets and ground sheets for protection, tools to repair homes.

    ShelterBox prides itself on its ability to respond quickly and in order to do so, we maintain a high level of stock and a continuous pipeline of aid. To achieve this we must have access to funds before a disaster strikes and be able to replenish stocks immediately afterwards.

    It is for this reason that we cannot raise funds for particular projects, instead, all funds raised will go into our ‘ShelterBox Solution’ fund. This fund allows to be flexible and respond quickly, in the most appropriate manner.

    Together we can help rebuild communities after disaster strikes. Join us and help ensure no family goes without shelter following disaster or humanitarian crisis.
