Embark on the test of a lifetime
for young people with physical disabilities

For four incredible days, across the spectacular Main Range, with Australia’s mainland glacial lakes as your backdrop, bold Youngcare supporters will walk a challenging 60km hike, taking on the top 10 peaks in Australia. 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.
