Polar Plunge 2023

I'm fundraising for...

Chimu Adventures can’t wait to welcome you to Antarctica— it’s going to be the trip of a lifetime!

A trip to Antarctica is one of the best ways anyone can celebrate life and enjoy the freedoms of being able to travel again, but for millions of Australians, the last few years haven’t been easy. To help give back, we’re so excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Lifeline to raise funds and awareness about the importance of mental health and well-being.

Lifeline is a national Australian charity dedicated to helping those experiencing emotional distress. The travel industry, along with many others, have gone through unprecedented setbacks and changes throughout the pandemic. For those doing it tough, Lifeline has always been a support, 24/7, to listen, help, and provide guidance.

That’s why we are so thrilled to celebrate life by partnering with Lifeline for the ultimate Polar Plunge—want to jump into the icy waters of the Antarctic in support of Lifeline? The frigid temps of the Antarctic aren’t just invigorating though, as cold water has also been shown to help ease symptoms of anxiety and depression, making the Polar Plunge a perfect tie-in with Lifeline.

If so, we ask you to sign up as a Lifeline supporter asking friends and family to sponsor you (insert fundraising page link) to take the polar plunge, all funds will go to helping Lifeline continue its fundamental work of saving lives, providing hope, and raising awareness of mental health.


Every bit helps and there’s no better feeling than raising funds for a charity that’s given back so much to Australians in recent years—other than the shock of your polar plunge, perhaps!

As an added incentive, our voyage’s special guests Andrew Denton, has agreed to take the plunge also—if everyone on board collectively raises $10,000 or more. The guest who raises the highest amount of money will also be invited as an esteemed guest at the Captain’s Table for a dinner onboard.

Sign up to fundraise today and help give back to your community!
