Whitelion Youth's Three Peaks Challenge event reimagined for 2022

In response to the ongoing impacts of the Omicron strain of Covid-19 in Victoria and New South Wales, Whitelion Youth’s flagship event Three Peaks Challenge Victoria and New South Wales has been reimagined in 2022 to ensure your safety. 

Our exceptional volunteer Lead Guides together with key partners, have encouraged us to continue the event and have designed a challenge for 2022 that will still be a test of endurance, requiring participants to tackle ‘3 peaks across 33 hours’.  

2022 changes to the traditional Three Peaks Challenge format-


In 2022 there will be two separate weekend Three Peaks Challenges on offer in each state (Victoria and New South Wales). This means you have the choice of one of two weekends (or both, if you’re keen!) to undertake your Three Peaks Challenge. Our experienced guides will lead you across three challenging peaks on whichever dates you choose. 

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’.  

We have split the event into two weekends to accommodate the uncertainties caused by the pandemic - 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.

Revised Victorian dates 

Choose one (or both!) event dates: 

  1. Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 March 2022
