Bonny Hills is a peaceful beachfront paradise 20 minutes south of Port Macquarie, and home to the 4th annual Melanoma March hosted by Paula Jackson and her family.


Melanoma March Bonny Hills will commence from the reserve at Rainbow Beach and follow the seaside 1.5km north before returning the reserve for post-walk entertainment and refreshments.


In 2016, participants of the event are welcome to march, walk, stroll or even run the event. We encourage runners make their way to the front of the pack at the start of the event. Please note; this is not a timed event.


Paula Jackson is a dedicated supporter of Melanoma Institute Australia hoping to raise funds and awareness to help change the outcome and quality of life of people living with melanoma. Paula, her family and the team at Melanoma Institute Australia encourage you to get involved and march to one day find cure!



Getting there

There is plenty of street parking around the surf club. The organisers of the event ask that participants be mindful of the surrounding neighbours when attending the early morning event.




We encourage all Melanoma marchers to practice their sun safety while taking part in this event. Sunscreen will be available at all events, but we suggest that you apply your sunscreen before leaving home. Participants are also encouraged to dress appropriately with sun-safe clothing, hats and sunglasses and remember your comfortable shoes.
