Simpson Desert Challenge 2023

For nine days, bold Youngcare supporters conquered harsh weather conditions and endless sand dunes while walking more than 225km across the Simpson Desert. This trek was a daily mental and physical test, but it was one that had a profound impact on the lives of young people with high physical support needs and their loved ones.

The completely isolated environment and tough conditions, where there was little control over personal choice, provided a striking reflection of the challenges that young people with high physical support needs faced on a daily basis.
