The Last Great First

Hike Across Antarctica

Get Outdoors! Get Active! It’s time to Hike Across Antarctica and support The Last Great First with the first full unsupported ski crossing trip!


The Last Great First’s coast to coast trek across Antarctica is 2,600 kilometres. We want to see how many times Scouts in Australia can cross the Antarctic in their own backyard.

We want Scouts to get outside and spend as much time as they can in the great outdoors, whilst getting involved in an incredible expedition.

There are many ways your Unit can reach the 2,600kms! Run, jog, skip and walking can all go towards your tally in ‘hiking across Antarctica’.

The Unit to record the most kilometres will receive a Penguin Woggle for each participant and Gareth and Richard will attend a Unit night via videoconference for a one on one chat!

Remember to log your kilometres each day on the tracking poster and once the challenge has concluded, upload your total distance using the online form.
