Join the Oxfam Trailwalker Melbourne 2023 event team as a VOLUNTEER and support us in our mission to eliminate poverty & inequality!

When and where?

Oxfam Trailwalker Sydney 24 - 26 March 2023 (the first volunteer shifts take place on Thursday the 25th of August)

At various locations along our 100km trail between: Gembrook, Lilydale, and Lysterfield.

As the event goes around the clock, shifts can take place at any time during the day/night.

So if you're a night owl, an early bird, or both; there will be a shift for you! Shift durations vary between 6 - 8 hours.

Event Details

Oxfam Trailwalker is a community event that brings people together from all walks of life. Our dedicated volunteers create an incredible experience for our teams, helping them walk 100km in 40 hours to raise much needed funds to tackle poverty. Without volunteers this event would not take place which is why we need your help!

The event spans across nine locations from Gembrook Railway Station through to Lilydale Lake and finishes at the scenic Lysterfield Lakek. We have roles that suit everyone from Checkpoint Captains & Crew, to Trail Marshals & Markers, to our Allied Health volunteers.

What does it involve?

Oxfam Trailwalker has a volunteer role for everyone!

- Our Checkpoint Crew look after walkers as they rest along the 100km journey, making sure they have the support and supplies they need.

- Trail Markers & Sweep Teams are physically active roles, with volunteer teams walking sections of the trail either marking the trail or sweeping behind our last walkers.

- Allied Health volunteers support & treat walkers at chosen checkpoints. These roles are available to qualified Allied Health professionals and also second year (and above) students.


- Giving back to the community and helping others in need around the world!

- Walk for Free at any Oxfam Trailwalker event in 2024!

- Oxfam Trailwalker volunteer gift

Mission Statement

Oxfam Australia's vision is a just world without poverty. We envision a world in which people can influence decisions which affect their lives, enjoy their rights, and assume their responsibilities as full citizens of a world in which all human beings are valued and treated equally. Today, there are 20 member organisations of the Oxfam International confederation and unlike other aid agencies, Oxfam is a secular, independent, non-government, not-for-profit organisation working in over 90 countries around the world. Through our network of other Oxfam agencies, we share educational and campaigning resources and cooperate in development projects and disaster relief.


Oxfam Trailwalker is a life-changing experience and every step you take helps raise vital funds to create a future without the inequalities that keep people in poverty. You’ll be part of a global phenomenon where ordinary people achieve something extraordinary and make a lasting difference by supporting Oxfam’s work around the world.
