Trek the Kokoda Track and raise money for Learning for Life


In 1942, the Kokoda Track area was the scene for bitter fighting. Today, walking the track has become a pilgrimage for many Australians, and those honouring the ANZAC spirit.

One of the world’s greatest treks, the Kokoda Track links the south and north coast of Papua New Guinea across 96 kilometres of rugged mountain terrain, tropical rainforest and unspoiled villages.

Join The Smith Family Kokoda Trek in 2017 with like-minded companions all raising vital funds for the Learning for Life program. Inspired Adventures will be with you every step of the way supporting your fundraising journey and making sure you’re prepared for the experience in the best possible way.

The Smith Family's Inspired Adventure to Machu Picchu 2015

Thirty amazing supporters embarked on an experience of a lifetime trekking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu to raise awareness for The Smith Family. Collectively the group has raised over $150,000 for The Smith Family! That is enough to support over 250 students on the Smith Family Learning for Life program!

 "We made new friends, achieved personal challenges and gained a sense of achievement as we walked, laughed, ate, slept, encouraged and empathised with our Smith Family team...Apart from the amazing scenery, the beautiful Peruvian people, the hard-working and caring porters, the awesome meals, the great trekking companions and the informative tour guide, the highlight for me was the last day when we climbed our final  summit and stood in front of Machu Picchu in all its panoramic and iconic beauty.  I thought, we made it, well done everyone!"  - Louise, Inspired Adventures participant 2015
