Success of WalkFest in showcasing walking

WalkFest 2024 was proudly brought to the South Australian community by Walking SA and our Principal Partner – National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS).

With the unrivalled splendour of the natural Belair National Park environment the crowd was wooed, wowed, and walking on a day of glorious weather.  An audience of more than 2,000 enjoyed the festival atmosphere.

The Walks Program had 23 walks including a children’s nature-based walk and talk, First Nations and all accessible walk experiences, and a range of length, difficulty, and immersive nature options.  Hosted walks were almost 100% subscribed.

With 37 stallholders, people were spoiled for choice with plenty of information, goods and giveaways to go around.  The free climbing wall had the kids entertained and the complimentary fruit and food vouchers kept their tummies full.  For the adults, they were torn between the sweet aroma of the morning coffee and unmistakeable call of frying onions from the BBQ.

If that wasn’t enough, a full stage program of over 20 different acts, saw the foot stomping sessions of the Argy Bargy Bush Band and the mesmerising didgeridoo playing of Robert Taylor, proud senior Kaurna man. All of that, and the official opening of the bushwalking season by the Member for Waite, Catherine Hutchesson MP.

As an annual iconic event, WalkFest remains a visual and immersive treat for the South Australian community.

See you next year!

Sun 10 Sept: Walk with us on World Suicide Prevention Day

Join us on World Suicide Prevention Day for a walk at sunrise to remember those lost to suicide, raise awareness and show your support for suicide prevention.

We are honoured to have Professor Nicholas Procter joining us to open the event.

Enjoy a coffee and catch-up with friends in fresh air as we come together as a community and remember those we’ve lost.

When
Sunday 10 September 7:30 am – 9:00 am

Where
Pennington Gardens, North Adelaide near Adelaide Oval

Walking route
River Torrens, a loop around the river

The reasons for commemorating this day are beyond those that come obvious to us – that Sonder provides mental health and suicide prevention support to our community every day.

Suicide is the leading cause of death for Australians between the ages of 15 and 44.

Beyond the tragic loss of the person, the impact of suicide deaths are felt by up to 135 people, including family members, work colleagues, friends, first responders at the time of death.

This year, we are participating in World Suicide Prevention Day to catch up and connect with each other.

We understand the importance of strengthening community, staying connected and showing each other that we are always here if in need of support.

Here’s what to expect

Watch the video above to find out more about how Sonder has commemorated World Suicide Prevention Day in the past.

This year we will be joined by more of the community as we have partnered with Walking SA and UniSA to extend the commemoration beyond Sonder staff.

The event will be opened by Professor Nicholas Procter, who will be sharing his research and recommendations on suicide prevention.

There will be a coffee van for your caffeine kick before, during or after the walk.

Walking SA will be hosting a stall at the starting point of the walk.
