About the Trek

Central Australia is abundant with natural beauty, offering everything from ancient red rock formations, spectacular gorges and canyons to crowd-pleasing starry nights, breathtaking sunrises and surreal sunsets.

As part of this incredible adventure, you will experience it all and more as you trek along the legendary Larapinta Trail. Joined by likeminded Shake It Up Australia Foundation supporters, you will visit sites sacred to the Arrernte people and learn the history of Australia’s traditional owners by day. By night, you fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.

What’s more, every dollar raised through Shake It Up’s Trek for Treatment: Larapinta 2019 will be directed to Parkinson’s research in Australia to find better treatments and ultimately find a cure for Parkinson’s.
