The Waterline Challenge® is an Australia wide event, which raises money to assist those who face adversity.

The Waterline Challenge® is the brainchild of Julian Day who himself is a three time survivor of childhood cancer. The Challenge is to each year cover as much as possible of Australia’s entire waterline, including rivers, lakes, and islands during the week of the 12th to 18th November 2018.

Being for everyone, we encourage involvement from people of all walks of life and with as much creativity as you can imagine: walk, run, cycle, paddle, row, sail, swim, skate, wind-surf, horse ride the waterlines of Australia. Belonging, feeling part of something is the key to creating real change. Together we can make a big impact and raise a lot of money for different charities. We are United to Conquer Adversity®.


You participate as a team of between three to ten members, including the team leader. Pick the charity you wish to support – see the Charities on the website. There is no restriction on who can be part of a team, only the leader must be at least 16 years old. The team decides the section of waterline (coast, rivers, lakes, islands) and how far they will travel, the direction they will follow, and their mode of travel. You can be as imaginative as you like.

Finally register your team for the 2018 Waterline Challenge at the BENOJO donation website. Every participant is asked to try and raise a minimum of $200. We encourage you to gain sponsorship from family, friends, work, and clubs.
