    • The start of the March will be located at the Strand Marine Parade entrance.

      Melanoma Patients Australia will have a stand with resources and information on services provided throughout Australia.

      Our event is dog friendly so four-legged friends are welcome to join us provided they are on a leash.

      The walking route is wheelchair and pram accessible.

    • Parking is available in the Strand – first 2 hours are free.

    • Melanoma March Coolangatta will be in line with current COVID restrictions. This continues to be a highly dynamic situation and we will continue to adapt and adjust as appropriate. Further details about what to expect and measures that will be in place will be added here closer to the event.

      Even though there may be some slight changes, Melanoma March Coolangatta is still the same important cause and a chance for us to come together safely.
