Join our Kakadu Gutsy Challenge in August.
The group will be led by Associate Professor Nick Pavlakis who is currently leading a clinical trial for gastro-oesophageal cancer. The funds raised will help to support research into new treatment options and increase awareness for gastro-intestinal (GI) cancer research.
This unique Top End challenge will see participants trek for 7 days through the World Heritage listed area. Participants will experience a traditional welcome to country and stay in sustainable, responsible, semi-permanent camps along the way.
Join this Gutsy Challenge and you will see the true magic of Kakadu revealed.
With a difficulty level of ‘moderate’ there is nothing moderate about the experiences you will have on this Gutsy Challenge. You will trek to Twin and Jim Jim Falls on day two and see first-hand some of the most beautiful indigenous rock art galleries in the country (if not the world).
Keep your eye out for the abundance of wildlife unique to this part of the world as you embark on this truly remarkable personal, physical and philanthropic journey.
38 people die each day from GI cancer and when joining a Gutsy Challenge you raise money to improve the treatment options and outcomes for the 28,900 Australians diagnosed with GI cancer each year.
View this video to see what you’ll experience when you take on this Gutsy Challenge.
