Would you like to enjoy stunning beach views, fantastic company, great food AND help others at the same time?

Then Walk My Way QLD is for you!

We’ve planned a 25km Walking Challenge along the coast in August 2019, starting at Good Shepherd Lutheran College in Noosa.

After a hearty breakfast, you’ll set off along the track. 

You’ll walk along bike paths, board walks, coastal forest, and some of the best beaches in the world, before arriving at Luther Heights Youth Camp, Coolum, for a Finish Line Celebration!

Watch the video here.

There’ll be buses to take you to and from the start and finish, so you can leave your car at either end.

Or why not make a weekend of it and stay at Luther Heights on Saturday night. They’re offering bargain accommodation for all Walkers! Check it out and book here

As you walk, you’ll be changing the lives of refugee children in countries like Kenya and Somalia by supporting them to go to school.

You’ll help children like little Eugenie, who has big dreams for her future. Read Eugenie’s story

You can even bring a team of students and teachers from your school. What a great way to bring your school community together to help others! 

In 2017, 270 people braved the cold and rain to walk through the Adelaide Hills in the first ever Walk My Way. They’ll be doing it again in April, but we reckon Queenslanders will give the South Australians a RUN for their money!

Let’s make it bigger, better – and warmer – than SA!


What if I can't get to the Sunshine Coast?

You can hold your own Walk!

If you want to do a Walk at your school, church or with friends, click here to find out how.

If you want to do a Walk by yourself, click here to find out how.


Can I run instead of walk?

Yes, runners are very welcome; however, be aware that there will not be a truck to carry packs from your start location to the finish.


Run?? I can hardly walk!

If you can't walk 25km, you can choose a shorter option from 8km (see question below).

If you're not up to walking at all, there are so many other ways to participate. Sponsor a walker, sponsor a team or simply donate. Pray. Volunteer. Contact Kirra to find out how you can help!


How far should I walk?

This depends on your level of fitness.

You can do:

  • 18km from Noosa Tennis Club (Girraween Ct)
  • 8km from Peregian Beach.

You can choose your Start Point when you register.


I'd like to know more about the timing on the day and what I should bring.

Sure! Download the Walkers' Information at the bottom of this page.
