Event Details

Oxfam Trailwalker is celebrating 25 years with one final incredible adventure. The last Australian event will be held in Melbourne through some of the most beautiful trails in the country, starting at Gembrook Railway Station and finishing at Lysterfield Lake with 6 checkpoint stops along the way. 

In teams of 3-6, participants will take on an extraordinary journey to hike 100km in 40 hours.

 

For the last 25 years, volunteers have been the beating heart of the event. Join us for one unforgettable send-off, support walkers on the trail, and help tackle inequality around the world.

With various roles, there’s something available for everyone! These include: 

Trail Marker & Sweep Teams are physically active roles, with volunteer teams walking sections of the trail either marking the trail or following behind our last walkers. 

Checkpoint Captains & Crew look after walkers as they rest along the 100km journey, making sure they have the support and supplies they need. 

Trail Marshals are on the trail and give walkers an extra spring in their step with motivational encouragement. Support walkers on the trail by providing directional support and alerting walkers to any upcoming hazards on the trail.

Allied Health volunteers support & treat walkers at chosen checkpoints to help them complete the achievement of a lifetime. These roles are for qualified Allied Health professionals and students.
