DO Details

The Byron Bay to Ballina Coastal Charity Walk starts at Denning Park in Byron Bay, loops around Cape Byron Lighthouse and follows the coastline through to Ballina.

Participants can choose to finish at Broken Head Reserve (12km), Lennox Head (24km) or Ballina (35km).

The walks are an all-terrain challenge across sand, bush track and roads and should not be underestimated by any walker. The scenery creates an awe-inspiring backdrop and participants can walk or run at any pace, however, it is a non-competitive social event.

Participants will be fully supported all the way by Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter Crew, Event Staff and Volunteers.

DO Supports

The Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter is an aero-medical emergency service which operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our life saving missions have saved over 7500 lives in the northern region of NSW and the service covers a region from the Queensland border south to Nambucca Heads, west to Glen Innes & Tenterfield, and east beyond the coastline - over 80,000sq kms in total. We rely on the generous support of the community to help fundraise over 60% of our annual $7m operating budget. All money raised within our flight path stays in our region and goes directly towards ensuring the Helicopter is on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to respond to the community. The Rescue Helicopter Service is FREE of charge to patients that are transported.
