Australia has one of the highest rates of melanoma in the world. Melanoma is often referred to as “Australia’s national cancer”.
But our research at Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA) is making a difference.
Whilst we are making progress, further research is vital for continued breakthroughs in treatment. That’s why we need your help… join us on MIA’s Outback Trek and support those affected by melanoma.
As part of this incredible – yet challenging – adventure, you will stand on ancient escarpments and gaze out upon the ochre-coloured landscapes of Central Australia. You will follow Aboriginal Dreaming tracks and trek beside one of the world’s oldest river systems.
By day, you will challenge yourself as you trek across the Red Centre, experiencing the diversity of desert habitats and learn the unique history of Australia’s Indigenous people. At night, you will fall asleep to the sounds of native wildlife under a blanket of stars.
By taking part in this unique adventure you’ll pave the way for new research to improve melanoma treatment, and ultimately find a cure.
