The Ballina to Byron Bay Charity Walk – a fundraising event for the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter – starts at Missingham Park in Ballina, following the coastline north to Lennox Head, Broken Head, Tallows Beach to Cape Byron Lighthouse finishing at Denning Park in Byron Bay, next to the Surf Life Saving Club.

Participants can choose to finish at Lennox Head (13km), Broken Head (25km) or Byron Bay (37km).

The walks are an all-terrain challenge across sand, bush track, and roads and should not be underestimated by any walker. The scenery creates an awe-inspiring backdrop for this Coastal Charity Walk. Participants can walk or run at any pace, however, it is a non-competitive social event.

Participants are fully supported all the way by Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter crew, event staff and volunteers.

Participants can enter individually or in teams of 2 to 20 people. Minimum age is 12 years old (accompanied by a paying adult).


Ballina to:

  • Lennox Head (13km) $50pp
  • Broken Head (25km) $65pp
  • Byron Bay (37km) $75pp

All participant fees are a tax deductible donation to Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter. Additional fundraising is encouraged and we provide you with an opportunity to set up a Everyday Hero Event Page during registration so that you can support our helicopter heroes.

First start wave is at 7.00am and then further starts occur every 10minutes through to 8.00am, with those registered for the longest distance (37km to Byron Bay) start first. Participants walking shortest distance to Lennox Head (13km) will be in the last start wave at approx 8am.

Fuelling stations – water, fruit, lollies and food for purchase – are provided along the way. Participants NEED TO BRING THEIR OWN WATER BOTTLE to keep the event space clean by walking green.
