Antony Zahra walked (where accessible) the Burma/Thai Railway Line over 300 Kilometers, constructed by the Australian/Allies POW's under Japanese Rule in WW2, with only one leg.
Antony Zahra also completed the Kokoda Track or Trail a single-file foot thoroughfare that runs 96 kilometers (60 mi) overland – 60 kilometers (37 mi) in a straight line – through the Owen Stanley Range in Papua New Guinea. The track was the location of the 1942 World War II battle between Japanese and Allied – primarily Australian – forces in what was then the Australian territory of Papua.
He has done this Epic walk raising awareness of PTSD, anxiety, depression and to make the community aware of what our POW's went through during World War 2.
Mr Zahra now resides in the Pilbara and the Wickham Riders will support Antony on his next adventure next year.

Elders would like DECCA to be a place of healing. Families are looking for solutions to help children and adults overcome drug and alcohol addiction and DECCA is an answer for some people in the community.
Ngarluma elder, David Walker will keep on fighting for the children.
"My people have said we got to keep going we can't stop, look at the kids, If we don't do anything now it's going to keep going, the next generation is going to be the same," he said.
Community consultation will continue in the months to come and the hope is that DECCA Healing Centre, will be a place for families to grow and flourish, a quiet place of healing, an attractive place that community members want to go to and a hub that is sustainable.
