Trinity Mattocks

Trinity Mattocks is an inspirational figure. In 2023, she commenced walking the National Trail from Cooktown, at the northern tip of Queensland to Healesville, in country Victoria to raise money for Byron Bay Wildlife Hospital. The National Trail is Australia’s premier long-distance trekking route and stretches an incredible 5330 kilometres along the entire length of Australia’s eastern seaboard. The Trail links stock routes, bush tracks, fire trails and surveyed roads along the Great Dividing Range. Alongside the Australian Trail Horse Riders Association, legendary Australian bushman and bootmaker R.M. Williams created the Trail where walkers, horse riders, cyclists and animal packers could experience the lifestyle of drovers who once frequented Australia’s stock routes.

Trinity is in the snowfields of Victoria now, not far from the finish line. To date she has raised over $8700 for our veterinary work saving sick, injured and orphaned wildlife. Here’s Trinity on why she is undertaking this epic journey:

Our native wildlife bring this country to life whether it be from our backyards to the outback, the kitchen window to the coastline or our verandahs to the creek. They paint our outdoor adventures (whatever shape or form) with scenes of colour, sounds & character. This wildlife hospital, its patients, its workers, means so much to me!”
