Register Now for the Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike!

Greetings, adventure seekers and nature enthusiasts! We’re thrilled to invite you to embark on a transformative journey with the Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike, held every year during the last week of February. This unique event is not just a stroll through the woods; it’s an immersive experience that stands for community, mental well-being, and the beauty of the great outdoors. In this blog post, we’ll take you through the event’s essence, the registration process, and where you can participate. So, lace up your hiking boots and let’s dive in!

What Does the Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike Stand For?

At its core, the Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike is more than just a physical challenge; it’s a celebration of community, a journey towards mental well-being, and a testament to the healing power of nature. The event provides a safe and supportive environment for individuals to come together, walk alongside each other in support of those with lived experiences of mental illness, and foster a sense of belonging while strengthening community involvement in destigmatizing suicide and suicide loss as we walk towards hope, healing and connection.

Beyond the scenic trails and challenges, the Hike to Heal Scavenger Hike promotes social interaction, reduces stress, and creates a space for healing conversations.

Hike to Heal Australia, through its Scavenger Hike, embraces and promotes the following simple mental wellbeing stepping stones:

  • Step X Step: Be active and healthy – participate in hiking or walking.
  • Step Outside: Nature nurtures – spend time in your backyard, take a walk in a local park, or hike in a nature reserve.
  • Step Together: Connect with other people – walk and talk with friends, join a walking group or hiking club.
  • Step  Up: Show kindness to others -adopt an attitude of gratitude, and hike shoulder to shoulder with someone who is doing it tough.
  • One Step At A Time: Stay in the moment and take notice of the natural world around you
