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.

This event will bring the community together by focusing on creating community awareness and celebrating the wonderful and different abilities that each and every one of us has.

Get your business, community group, friends and family together wearing wings or purple and we will create a kaleidoscope of colour to celebrate this all-inclusive community event.

Lots of giveaways and prizes to be won on the day for ‘Most Unique Wings’, ‘Most Colourful Wings’, ‘Best Dressed Dog’ and much more!

Come and meet Jimmy and Tam, winners of ‘The Block’ 2020 and enjoy some entertainment by Sunshine Butterflies members and our MC, ‘Nugget’ from Hot 91 with Sam & Ash broadcasting live on the day.

Together, let’s Walk in Wings and create awareness and celebrate people of all abilities in our community.
