ShelterBox Kokoda Trek — April 2022

Join us on the Kokoda Trail in 2022 for an epic adventure like no other.

The Kokoda Track was the scene of bitter fighting when the Australian Army fought to defend Port Moresby from advancing Japanese forces in 1942. Today, walking that same track has become an iconic pilgrimage for those wanting to honour the ANZAC spirit. The ShelterBox Kokoda Challenge will take place over April 2020 as a special commemoration of the historic events.

On this adventure, you’ll lace up your boots to trek alongside ShelterBox Australia supporters to raise funds that will help supply disaster relief shelters to people in need.

Women's Adventure Film Tour — Year Round

In September 2019 we held our first screening of The Women’s Adventure Film Tour in Byron Bay and it is safe to say it was a great success. 

The film showcases 110 minutes of jaw-dropping short films that feature an all-star female athlete cast pushing themselves to the limits, all in the name of adventure. Watch them climb, dive, shred, ski, run and more.
