3km accessible loop along the Noosa River on Gympie Terrace

Registration from 6am and walk with us from 6.30am

Over 4 million people in Australia are living with some form of disability.

That’s 1 in 5 people!

Walk in Wings by Sunshine Butterflies is an all-inclusive walk to celebrate all abilities in our community.

Our Vision

Walk in Wings by Sunshine Butterflies is an all-inclusive accessible 3km walk along the Noosa River which aims to celebrate all abilities in our community.

In 2022 we will be holding the annual Walk in Wings event.

This event is designed to promote whole community inclusivity and unites businesses, community & sporting groups, schools and the general public from all walks of life.

Walkers will create a kaleidoscope of colour as they embrace the playfulness of life & importance of creating an all-inclusive community in their colourful butterfly wings or in purple.

We invite you to join us in breaking down barriers and elevating awareness of our neighbours and friends living with disability.

Together we can create an inclusive and accepting community for all.

Our Mission

One of the first barriers that people living with a disability face are the attitudes and mindset of others.

These barriers include stereotyping and usually assuming that people living with a disability have a poor and unhealthy quality of life. This is usually because of a lack of community understanding. Yet, in reality, people with disabilities are like everyone else, we all have our strengths and our weaknesses.

Walk in Wings focuses on creating community awareness and celebrating the wonderful and different abilities that each and every one of us has.

Walk in Wings is an annual event that brings the community together to break down the social and physical barriers that people living with disability face daily. Together, lets ‘Walk in Wings’ and create awareness of and celebrate people of all abilities in the community.

Get your friend and family together to design your unique set of wings for our walk. Your wings will bring a kaledescope of colour and create an all inclusive community event.

Prizes are given on the day for “Most Unique Wings”, “Biggest Wings” & “Most Colourful Wings”.

Come and meet Jimmy and Tam, winners of “The Block” 2020, enjoy some entertainment by Sunshine Butterflies members and a live outside broadcast with “Sam and Ash” and our MC, “Nugget” from Hot 91.

If you register before 12 noon on Monday 10th of September you will go into the draw to win a Vuly Medium Ultra trampoline with shade cover and ladder (valued at $1,333) with free shipping. The winner will be announced on Friday 16th September at the event, 8 am on stage. The winner (if not present) will be notified by phone that day. Please note. one ticket will be given to each person who registers.

Together we can create an inclusive and accepting community for all.
