Take a Walk on the Wild Side to raise money for worthy causes

Tasmanians are being urged to take a Walk on the Wildside in our iconic wilderness to help raise vital funds for the Beacon Foundation, and a range of other worthy causes.

Beacon CEO, Scott Harris, said the initiative by the Tasmanian Walking Company was a great way to support the community.

“Beacon is working hard to create a job-ready generation of Tasmanians and we are really grateful for the support of the Tasmanian Walking Company,” Mr Harris said.

“Beacon’s mission is to bring communities, schools and businesses together to create positive change and this initiative really embraces that concept.

“Beacon will use the funds to help young people reach their potential at school, in the workplace and in the community. By supporting this initiative, Tasmanians are making our communities stronger.”

Tasmanian Walking Company’s General Manager, Heath Garratt said, “Walk on the Wild Side provides the perfect opportunity for people to enjoy the health and wellbeing benefits of walking in Tasmania’s remote wilderness areas while at the same time knowing the full purchase price of their walk is donated to their preferred charity, such as Beacon Foundation.

“Guests joining the Walk on the Wild Side initiative will receive a 30 per cent discount on our Cradle Mountain Huts Walk, Three Capes Lodge Walk, Bay of Fires Lodge Walk and Wineglass Bay Sail Walk providing a great outcome for both walkers and charities alike,” Mr Garratt said.

“Tasmanian Walking Company is the leader in multi-day guided walks in Australia and offers all-inclusive immersive experiences complete with private in-park accommodation, all meals and beverages, guides and transfers. The Walk on the Wild Side initiative is part of Tasmanian Walking Company’s plan to donate $1 million through its charitable Foundation.”
