The Brisbane Lions in partnership with The Long Walk Foundation, Deadly Choices and AFL Queensland annually hosts The Long Walk as part of our commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander engagement.

For several years now, The Long Walk has attracted more than 500 participants which is the largest walk held by an AFL Club outside of the 'Dreamtime at the 'G' celebration between Richmond and Essendon.

The Long Walk Trust is a charity inspired by former Essendon player Michael Long's walk to Canberra to get the lives of Indigenous people back on the national agenda. The charity works for Indigenous wellbeing and raises funds to support programs that improve conditions for Indigenous Australians.

Season 2021 saw around 300 fans being led by one of the Brisbane Lions' most unassuming, genuine champions in Michael 'Magic' McLean.

Michael 'Magic' McLean addressed the enthusiastic throng of Lions faithful before they departed South Bank on a walk of solidarity designed to celebrate the contribution to the game of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players and keep the plight of Indigenous peoples firmly on the national agenda.

The 2023 Long Walk will be held prior to the Round 10 match vs the Gold Coast SUNS as part of Sir Doug Nicholls Round. More details to come.
