Trek The Larapinta Trail today for a Better Tomorrow 


Ardoch is very excited to be offering five people the incredible opportunity to trek the Larapinta Trail in August 2019, while raising vital funds for Ardoch’s programs! The Larapinta Trail is one of Australia’s most spectacular bushwalking and trekking experiences and a once in a lifetime experience. This 7-day adventure will have you expertly guided along the most spectacular and rewarding sections of the trail.

If you’re up for the challenge, or know somebody who is, please get in touch with Theresa at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information.

By raising vital funds through Ardoch, you are helping to increase engagement in education, build aspirations and enhance learning outcomes for children in disadvantaged communities.

Multiple studies in Australia have demonstrated an unacceptable link between the socio-economic status of students and their educational outcomes. One in three children in Australia’s most disadvantaged communities start school developmentally vulnerable and continue to fall behind as they progress through school.

With your help we can:

  • Help children in disadvantaged communities realise their potential through full participation in education
  • Mobilise volunteers from the community and workplaces to engage one-on-one with children to help improve their learning outcomes
  • Deliver educational programs that promote literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) learnings and enhance student aspirations by broadening their horizons
  • Build capacity of schools and early years services by connecting them to volunteers, businesses, philanthropists, government, communities, and other service delivery organisations
  • Advocate for policy change to reduce inequity in education
