More info herehere and here from after the walk.


facebook“Until I decided to walk 180km from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne  in my Jail 2 Justice campaign the longest I had walked in years was in Hervey Bay – from the caravan park to the pier and back.

facebookThat’s why it is somehow fitting that there is a Hervey Bay connection this weekend with my campaign through your Enzo’s to the Pier and return. I am honoured that Jeanette Maynes suggested to me that her free community walk should be a 10km Queensland celebration of ours.

JAIL 2 JUSTICE WALK – DERRYN HINCHThe goal of Jail 2 Justice is twofold. To honour the families of the victims of crime. To ‘walk a mile in their shoes’. And to draw attention to my petition for a national public register of convicted sex offenders. When I was released from jail in March we had 43,000  signatures. That figure has grown by more than 80,000  to 115,000.

The campaign, and the walk,  have a strong Queensland  connection. On the final day, next Monday, we walk from Brunswick – where Jill Meagher was killed – to Parliament House in Melbourne to present the petition  to  Victorian  Premier Denis Napthine.

Joining me on that final stage will be Daniel Morcombe’s  mum and dad, Denise and Bruce Morcombe. This amazing couple have endorsed my campaign.

Thanks for taking part this weekend. I believe Australian  parents are angry, frustrated and scared about their children’s futures. A new national law, outlined in my petition, is a start.”

10km Challenge 2013 #12 Jail 2 Justice JAIL 2 JUSTICE WALK – DERRYN HINCH

“Help… Please!

THIS IS AN APPEAL to police, to the courts, to the child welfare authorities, to the so-called protectors of this community. It is an appeal to sanity. And if I don’t do this, I will never be able to forgive myself if something awful happens to another child. And, believe me, it will.” – Derryn Hinch

Sweet and Sour – Saturday, 17 May 2014 :
THERE WERE MIXED FEELINGS on a chilly May dawn today when we started our ten-day Jail 2 Justice walk from Langi Kal Kal Prison to Melbourne.
Positive vibes that we were trying to do something for a community wracked with anger, frustration and fear over what’s been going on in our courts and parole system.
But also the underlying truth that many of our supporters, including most of those walking today, have personal stories to tell and all of them sad ones.
They are the people we walked for today. A symbolic ‘walk a mile in their shoes’ event to show that Australians do care and want to do something about it.
About 45 of us started out from Langi Kal Kal this morning. At the end of the first ten kilometres I stole a quote from a baseball movie: ‘Build it and they will come’. – Derryn Hinch

Jail 2 Justice Walk - Derryn Hinch petitionPLEASE SIGN THE PETITION
 HERE!!! –
….In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims’ rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release…… We, the undersigned, insist, that by the end of 2014, the Australian governments, state and federal, through their attorneys-general, unite to publish an ongoing national public register of all convicted sex offenders similar to Megan’s Law in the United States.

I Jeanette Maynes am dedicating this weekend’s Fraser Coast FREE 10km Challenge – Community Walk / Run to support, honour and promote Derryn’s inspirational ‘Jail 2 Justice Walk’ and acknowledge the victims, survivors and their families in our region / nationwide as is paramount we all do our bit to raise awareness, protect all children, change the laws and BREAK THE SILENCE! Children deserve and are entitled to love, happiness, honour, protection and security.

TOUGH MUDDER – All aboard the Pain Train! 20km, fire, ice & 10,000 volts!

September 23, 2012



Tough Mudder is described as “probably the toughest event on the planet” and after 5hrs, 20km slog of thick MUD, 25 British Special Forces Obstacles and EIGHT electric shocks, we’re now officially  TOUGH MUDDERS!’ We managed to get over 3m Berlin walls, through underground mud tunnels, electric shocks (TWO DIFFERENT OBSTACLES) a fire pit & the refreshing ice bath plus burnt 2,120 calories with the help of other awesome unknown Mudders!!

We attempted all tasks and only just didn’t complete 2 being monkey bars (slipped off) and (‘Mt Everest’ half pipe, touched but just missed gripping the hands to get pulled up).

Our training paid off as we were definitely fit enough but it was certainly a tough course and we went at our own pace. We were tested physically and conquered fears while having a good laugh and fun at the same time! Half way through I said I wonder if I could back up next year? After pulling up pretty okay the next day that’s possibly the new goal, camp overnight and do TWO Tough Mudders Back to Back!

The event was held at Glenworth Valley in Sydney on Sunday 23rd September 2012 – the venue and organisation was excellent!

fraser island Design House Sponsorship

As many of you may be unaware I’m on a personal ‘Get Fit Campaign’ so last month’s challenge was a 24km run across Fraser Island! I found a group of fun & fit ladies who were also interested in completing this challenge. I then sponsored print for out t-shirts stating “No Excuses” and had our Finishers medals made. I had total faith we could make the distance even though four of us had not run more than 10km before! Starting at Kingfisher we ran through bush and soft sand past Lake McKenzie then through rainforest, finishing at Central Station. It was awesome to sponsor a Design House team’ and be a part of this motivated group of women who are now the face of traQ (Trail Running Association of Queensland) …… click here to find out more!
