The Queensland Legal Walk unites communities to walk together and raise vital funds to ensure all Queenslanders have access to the legal system.
Date: 14 May 2019
Time: 6.30 am for 7 am start
Locations: Brisbane, Cairns, Gold Coast, Mackay, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba, and Townsville.
The walk in Brisbane will be led by the Honourable Catherine Holmes, Chief Justice of Queensland and the Honourable Yvette D'Ath, Minister for Justice and Minister for Training and Skills Attorney-General. Our wonderful ‘Justice Cups’ will again be awarded to the top individual and team fundraisers.
The fundraising target for this year’s Walk is $150,000. Additionally, 10 per cent of donations from across the state will support those affected with legal issues from the recent Townsville floods.
We hope that every registered Walker will raise or donate at least $100 to help those who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, people with mental illness, refugees and self-represented litigants. Your fundraising efforts will help LawRight continue to assist these vulnerable individuals and help remove the barriers to justice that reinforce poverty and exclusion.
$40 per adult and $30 for students.
Many of the team pages for 2019 are now in place, you can join a team while registering . We can also assist with the creation of new team pages.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you and your colleagues at the 2019 Queensland Legal Walk!
Starting outside the Supreme Courts on the corner of George and Tank Streets, Brisbane, the Walk heads south along George Street, through the CBD and into the Botanic Gardens. After crossing the Goodwill Bridge the walk then turns north as we walk along the river at Southbank before crossing the Brisbane River once more and finishing back at the courts. Afterwards we will have light snacks and coffee along with a short presentation and awards.
Starting and finishing outside the Southport District Court, our Gold Coast route heads out along Nerang Street for a walk along the Broadwater to Sundale Bridge and back.
Commencing by the playground at the north end of the Cairns Esplanade, the walk heads south alongside the water before returning through the parkland.
Starting and finishing on the corner of Flinders and Stanley Streets, the route heads along Flinders Street to ANZAC park. Walking through the parkland, the route then turns around at Gregory Street and returns to the starting point.
Commencing at the Toowoomba Magistrates Court, the route takes and anticlockwise turn around Queens Park, before finishing near the playground.
Starting at the Cenotaph on The Esplanade, the route heads along to the beach walk on Alexandra Parade. Walking south and skirting the caravan park, the walk turns back at the Alex Skate Park and returns to the Cenotaph along the same route.
