Where is it? Barcaldine, Adavale, Charleville, Dirranbandi, Nindigully and St George, Qld.
A great excuse to explore south-west Queensland, this biannual 4WD adventure raises money for Angel Flight Australia, a charity that provides free non-emergency flights for health-related issues in The Outback. Share the experience with 150 competitors as you battle through 15 challenges and 12 towns in seven days. It’s a great way to meet remote communities, as well as having a bit of friendly competition for $20,000 worth of prizes. The next Trailblazer is April 22-29, 2012, so there’s plenty of time to plan.
