Trek Quest is an adventure fundraising organisation that raises funds through 4WD adventures in some of the most remote areas of Australia. Peter and Karen Arthur and Ben and Bronwen Graydon, creators of Trek Quest, have supported Our Kids and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter since 2005 by raising funds in a very innovative way.
To date Trek Quest have raised over $160,000 for charities including Our Kids and the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. Annually themed Treks like Jurassic Adventure and Mad Max in Broken Hill give participants and sponsors alike fantastic opportunities to have fun for a worthwhile cause. As Peter says, 'We have enough mud to put a smile on everyone's faces and get the trucks dirty. It gives us great pleasure knowing that we are having a great time and making a difference to children's lives'.
Through hard work and commitment, Trek Quest have created partnerships with Our Kids and Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter which reinforces the longevity and capacity these organisations hold for fun and success.

2017 is the 9th running of Trek Quest 4x4 Fundraising Adventure and we are well underway with the preparations for the next Trek. With each year it has grown in size and popularity on the Northern Rivers area.
To date Trek Quest has raised over $165,000 with all proceeds going to local charities. This would not have been possible without the teams that go on the adventure and the businesses that support us each year.
The main beneficiaries being OURKIDS and the Westpac Rescue Helicopter both playing a major part in helping children in the Northern Rivers. Next year marks the 12th anniversary of the record breaking double crossing of Australia in 2005, raising enough money to buy a new Humidicrib for the children’s ward valued at $20,000. From here Trek Quest was formed and now has many Volunteers raising funds for Children on the Northern Rivers. Teams continued to raise funds throughout the year, culminating in a week long 4x4 Adventure. In 2017 the Adventure heads to the QLD Outback on an “Outback Pub to Pub Adventure”.
Trek Quest would like to welcome any new business to supporter and be a part of our communities own local fundraiser. In return we will promote your business as supporter of our local charities and Trek Quest.
