THE LONG WALK

COMMUNITY SPONSORSHIP

We have been an event partner for the Long Walk since 2019.

Each year, the Long Walk commemorates Michael Long’s famous walk to Canberra where he embarked on a 650km trek to visit then-prime minister John Howard to discuss Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues.

The Long Walk Trust is a charity inspired by Essendon champion Michael Long’s walk to
Canberra to get the lives of Indigenous people back on the national agenda. The charity works for Indigenous wellbeing and raises funds to support programs that improve conditions for Indigenous Australians.
