A teacher will complete her journey across the country on foot and bike in Kalbarri on Friday following a cloudy end to the challenge. Queensland teacher Lizz Hills has made it to the final stretch in her 6000km journey across Australia, raising $56,000 so far for the environmental education and conservation program Wild Mountains Trust. Ms Hills touched down on WA soil on May 13, marking 4500km into her Trek2Reconnect journey after passing 32 towns and 24 Aboriginal nations in five states, and plans to finish up in Kalbarri later this week. “When challenges arise as they always will you still get a choice as to where you put your focus,” Ms Hills said. “For the first time since the beginning of the trek we have rainy weather challenges, body challenges and connection issues, yet still rainbows, magic moments and beauty.” The trekker said she decided to embark on the expedition not just to raise money and awareness, but to inspire her children. “I got it into my head that if one person could cross a whole country, a whole continent on foot, then that would just have to show that we live on a small planet in an infinite universe with infinite possibilities,” Ms Hills said. Ms Hills will arrive in town as Kalbarri District High School hold their cross-country event.
