A Community Walk To Wigleys

75 community members come along to the Walk to Wigleys and Launch of the Arid Lands Outback Trek on Sunday 24th June.

ALEC provided a BBQ, and Aunty Pat Ansell Dodds provided a short history on the historical campaign to save Wigleys Junction from the proposal to be dammed.

Walkers of all ages then trekked the 5kms to Wigleys Gorge, and were met with afternoon tea whilst they waited for the ALEC bus to transport people back to Telegraph Station. It was great weather and many people were appreciative to be out walking in nature, with a large group of people who all have an interest in preserving it.

The Arid Lands Outback trek is a fundraising adventure for ALEC in June 2019, where participants walk some of the best sections of the Larapinta Trail over a week, whilst raising vital funds to support the work of ALEC.

Find out more information about the Arid Lands Outback trek here, and please spread the word to anyone who you know may be interested in fundraising for ALEC whilst having a great adventure on one of the worlds best walking trails.
