It was pure serendipity that Ben Donnelly was walking the High Country Rail Trail on the day of the Whistle Stop High Tea.

Bens ‘Pit to Peak’ walk, from Lake Eyre to Mt Kosciuszko, aims to raise awareness of the need to be kind to each other for our mental health. He organised the walk in reponse to the need he has seen as a Primary School teacher, as a fundraiser for R U OK?

An icon on the local calendar, the Whistle Stop High Tea is one of the many events we offer to connect people with nature, strengthening health and wellbeing in the process. Meeting Ben on the trail seemed perfectly in place amongst the smiles and goodwill of this year’s High Tea participants.
