Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge

Challenge of a lifetime back in 2015

With 2015 marking our 10 year anniversary, the 2014 Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge will be postponed so that this iconic event can help us celebrate such a milestone in true Youngcare style.


The Simpson Desert Challenge embodies the strength and determination of those who founded Youngcare, and is a fitting way to commemorate all that has been achieved over the past 10 years.


The 2015 Youngcare Simpson Desert Challenge will be the third Challenge and will be incredibly special as the organisation celebrates 10 years. You can express your interest in participating by emailing Jemma, our Events Manager, at
