Oxfam events

There are many ways to get involved in our work but joining an Oxfam event is definitely one of the easiest, not to mention the most fun. We have events to suit all tastes and ages, from large-scale fundraising events like Oxfam Trailwalker to awareness raising events like National Close the Gap Day to smaller state-based events run by local Oxfam groups.

Some of the big events

Oxfam Trailwalker

Trailwalker is the world’s greatest team event, involving thousands of walkers and volunteers. Run in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, teams of four must cross 100km of Australian bush in less than 48 hours and collectively raise at least $1,000 to help to overcome poverty and suffering around the world. Find out more about Trailwalker.

Oxfam Challenge – Mount Kilimanjaro

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Oxfam has teamed up with Inspired Adventures to allow a small group of Oxfam supporters the chance to travel to Tanzania, climb Mount Kilimanjaro and then visit one of our amazing programs in South Africa. Contact our partners in adventure, Inspired Adventures on Rachael@inspiredadventures.com.au or call 1300 905 188.

National Close the Gap Day

Every year we encourage people to hold their own event on National Close the Gap Day to raise awareness about the 17-year life expectancy gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. Find out more about National Close the Gap Day.

Dairy farming in Bangladesh

Across the world, women are more likely to live in poverty. But in Bangladesh, dairy farming is creating income for women like Aklima. Together, we can help more women take control of their lives.
