WHAT TO EXPECT ON THE NIGHT?
For safety Up All Night participants will walk in three different groups. This means three different starting times for the three different waves of walkers!
You'll be sent details of your individual start time (aka wave time) via email in the next week.
Here is a schedule of what to expect before and after your walk.
BEFORE THE WALK
Please arrive promptly for your wave time. You can meet up with your fellow walkers and team mates and start to get pumped up for the walk ahead! If your organisation has provided a banner, it will be located near the start/finish line so you can easily find your workmates!
There will be a DJ playing tunes to get you excited!
If you still need to collect your pack, the registration desk will be open from 6:00pm.
AFTER THE WALK
You’ll be greeted with lots of cheers at the finish line! What an amazing achievement!
Kick back and relax after walking or rolling over the finish line with your fellow walkers! Fresh fruit, snacks and coffee will be available for all walkers, as well as plenty of water.
WHAT ARE THE WAVE TIMES?
6:30pm - Start Zone Opens to Wave 1
7:00pm - Let the walking begin!
7:15pm - Start Zone Opens to Wave 2
7:45pm - Let the walking begin!
8:00pm - Start Zone Opens to Wave 3
8:30pm - Let the walking begin!
When will you tell me what's my wave time?
We'll be emailing participants their wave times within the next week.
Can't walk in the wave you've been assigned?
If you'd like to change the group you're in, email us at email@example.com and we'll do our best to help you.
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO GET TO THE START / FINISH LINE? AND IS THERE PARKING?
We recommend participants and volunteers taking public transport into the city, use a taxi or rideshare service, or see if a friend or family member can drop you off at the starting point!
For safety reasons, we don't recommend you drive home after completing your Up All Night walk.
If you do need to drive and leave your car in the city during the event, we recommend you use Crown Perth's free parking, or one of the secure parking garages run by City of Perth or Wilson Parking.

WHAT ITEMS SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
We suggest bringing a “waist bag” with you to carry the essentials:
- ID, bank card & Medicare card
- Light jacket / jumper to keep you warm while you may be stationary at times
- Phone + portable power bank phone charger
- Lip balm
- Water bottle
- Sunglasses (for in the morning)
Our pit stops will provide you with lights snacks and water-refills plus a few surprises along the way. However, if you do have particular dietary requirements we recommend you bring your own food to get you through.
You will also be provided with hand sanitiser at each pit stop. Please use this and properly social distance!
WILL THERE BE AN AREA TO STORE SOME ITEMS AT THE START / FINISH LINE?
There will not be any storage facilities at the start, finish or pit stops. We encourage you to pack light for the walk, so you don’t have anything heavy weighing you down!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO WALK THE COURSE?
How long it takes to complete the Up All Night course will really depend on your walking pace. Most teams aim for a 10 hour completion time. Walkers start in waves (there are 3 waves). You'll be notified by mid November as to the wave you've been allocated to start in!
CAN MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY COME TO THE STARTING LINE AND FINISH LINE?
Absolutely! We highly encourage friends and family to come down to the starting zone to cheer you and/or welcome you back from your journey.
