Event Details

Oxfam Trailwalker is a community event that brings people together from all walks of life. Our dedicated volunteers create an incredible experience for our teams, helping them walk 100km in 48 hours to raise much needed funds to tackle poverty. Without volunteers this event would not take place which is why we need your help!

The event spans across nine locations from Parsley Bay through to Bobbin Head and finishes at the scenic Tania Park. We have roles that suit everyone from Checkpoint Captains & Crew, to Trail Marshals & Markers, to our Allied Health volunteers.

What does it involve?

Oxfam Trailwalker has a volunteer role for everyone!

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

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

  • Allied Health volunteers support & treat walkers at chosen checkpoints. These roles are available to qualified Allied Health professionals and also second year (and above) students.

Perks?

  • Giving back to the community and helping others in need around the world!
  • Walk for Free at any Oxfam Trailwalker event in 2023!
  • Oxfam Trailwalker volunteer gift
