Whitelion Youth's Three Peaks Challenge event 2023

Whitelion's 3 Peaks Challenge is back in 2023! Hike some of the most amazing mountains in Victoria, New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory! 

Our exceptional volunteer Lead Guides together with key partners, have designed an amazing challenge for 2023 that will still be a test of endurance, requiring participants to tackle ‘3 peaks across 33 hours’.  


In 2023 there will be 2 weekends to tackle the challenge. The first weekend will be in NSW and ACT across the 23rd of March to the 26th of March. In VIC, it will be hosted across the 30th of March to the 2nd of April. If you are game, you are welcome to take on both weekends!

Our guides recommend undertaking the full three peaks (x3 hikes) over two consecutive days to preserve the integrity of the traditional event, which is to ‘complete 3 peaks within 33 hours’.  

To remain safe during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we advise that if you are unwell, caring for a loved one, or in isolation you have the opportunity to experience the event on an alternative date rather than miss out after all your training and fundraising efforts. 

For those hiking enthusiasts looking for the ultimate challenge, there is the option of completing all six hikes over the two weekends.

Reach three summits, help your community

Our Three Peaks Challenge teaches you just how resilient you are while raising money for Whitelion to give young people the best chance at succeeding in life.

Over 33 hours, you’ll travel between three of your states most challenging peaks in NSW or VIC. Unlike other charity challenges, you’ll be walking alongside the very people you’re supporting—young people who benefit from Whitelion’s many programs.

Places are limited, so be sure to get in quick. This is one challenge you don’t want to miss.
