Robert Lindsay.


OUR Myall Street lawyer, Robert Lindsay, will be removing his coat and tie on 9 September 2019 to don trekking gear when he embarks on a one hundred kilometre walk across the Ikara-Flinders Ranges trail over five days in a team of thirty to raise $100,000.00 which will support Indigenous students and Indigenous health research.

The thirty Ikara-Flinders Ranges Champions will include corporate, Indigenous, University and community leaders who will be like-minded, determined and dynamic people who are ready to take on a challenge to help others.

Each day promises to be tough with the walk ranging from nineteen kilometres set at a moderate grade to twenty five kilometres set at a more challenging grade, however, walkers will be able to focus on the trek itself with all food and accommodation organized which means that trekkers will only need to carry their own backpack and water each day.

When News Of The Area asked Robert how he heard about the challenge, he said, “I have never participated in anything like this before and became involved in the challenge when my brother, Mervyn who is also part of the challenge, encouraged me to join.

“My personal goal is to complete the walk and to hopefully raise more money than Merv but there is definitely no competition!”

On this once in a lifetime hike, walkers will experience the arid heart of the Australian outback by foot, traversing one of the oldest geological landscapes in the world and at the same time meet some of the locals, experience their culture and meet Indigenous representatives of the local Adnyamathanha people.

Individual fundraising goal for this walk is $3500.00 and these funds will impact on a life change for Indigenous Australians so if you would like to support champion Robert Lindsay in his adventure, go to and click on the ‘Donate Now’, Choose a Champion to support and follow the prompts.

News Of The Area wishes Robert and his brother, Mervyn, all the very best when they meet the Ikara-Flinders Ranges Challenge.
