Simpson Desert Challenge 2023

For nine days, bold Youngcare supporters conquer harsh weather conditions and endless sand dunes whilst walking more than 225km across the Simpson Desert. This trek will be a daily mental and physical test, but it is one that will have a profound impact on the lives of young people with high physical support needs and their loved ones.

The completely isolated environment, and tough conditions, where there is little control over personal choice, provides a striking reflection of the challenges that young people with high physical support needs face on a daily basis.

 

Date: 18 May – 28 May 2023

Location: Birdsville and beyond!
