Shelterbox Trek for Shelter 2021
 
 
We are excited to announce Trek for Shelter and our goal to raise $250,000
Trek the legendary Larapinta Trail in the Australian Outback, the dense rainforest of Cradle Mountain, the spectacular coastlines in Western Australia or challenge yourself with the Kokoda trail. Join one of these epic adventures and raise funds for ShelterBox Australia to assist families in crisis.
 
Our goal is to raise a quarter of a million dollars across our five adventures. This amount of money will provide 1,000 families with a ShelterKit (including tarps, tools and fixings) plus solar lights, a water filter and mosquito nets. Life-changing, life-saving aid, essential for disaster-affected communities to start their own recovery. We’re asking you to help us continue our efforts by joining one of our Trek for Shelter adventures today!
 
When you sign up, you’ll join a team of other passionate ShelterBox supporters who will trek with you and we’ll give you all the guidance you’ll need to start your fundraising journey!
 
Which adventure will you choose?
 
 
 
Kokoda | 22 April - 2 May 2022
 
Regarded as one of the world’s greatest treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rocky mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and remote villages.
 
 

 
 
 
New Year savings: Sign up before 31 January and save $300!

ROTARY JACARANDA FESTIVAL

Saturday 27 November 2021 - 9.30am - 3.30pm
 
On the fourth Saturday in November Applecross Rotary will once again take over a much-loved section of Ardross Street, in the heart of Applecross Village, to deliver a fantastic, family-friendly day of fun and entertainment.
 
The Rotary Jacaranda Festival is a celebration of all things 'community' something at that is at the heart of the work we do as a Club throughout the year.
 
In 2021 we look forward to building on the success of previous years with some 150 stalls, a unique line-up of entertainment featuring even more for families and kids, and that buzz of excitement made possible when thousands of people come together.
 
Entry is always free - although donations are encouraged (we have card facilities) and we reinvest any funds raised in dozens of local groups and initiatives over the coming year.
