Walk with other women and have a good laugh
Join a free women's community walk/hike, hosted by Women Want Adventure, Australia's leading women's adventure community.
It will be held at Bushrangers Bay, a sandy beach surrounded by basalt cliffs. It is a brilliant location which is full of atmosphere and a fabulous place to be outside for a women's community walk.
Hiking in hills
The walk will commence at Bushrangers Bay, continue on to Cape Schanck and then return to the Bay. It is a very tranquil location that has dark high land areas where the waves are sometimes high and it is contrasted by the dark and brooding headlands and wild waves that often crash onto ragged rocks guarding the entrance to the Bay.
You will be able to get to Bushrangers Bay from the Boneo Road car park and picnic area. This section of the Two Bays Walking Track passes along Main Creek and provides nice views. It also passes through the shady Banksia clumps of trees and you also get views over the surrounding farmland and directly into the valley with its creek below.
You will then return to the car park near the Boneo Picnic Area.
This hike will be held on Saturday 16th February 2019, from 10.15 am to 3.30 pm. The leader of this hike will be Lisa Barnes; you can contact Lisa on phone 0402 214 256.
You will need to bring the following:
Wet weather jacket
Walking poles (optional)
PLEASE NOTE: Swimming is not recommended on the trip as the beach is unpatrolled and often dangerous due to strong rips and large waves. The pace with these groups is always a slow one so you need not worry if you do not walk fast!
As there are only 14 women on this walk, you will need to register for this free fun event here.
About Women Want Adventure Women Want Adventure organise and host day, overnight and international trips such as hiking, kayaking, camping, climbing and more. Their trips are for women who love to be outdoors with each other. They focus on women who enjoy trying new adventures, make new friendships and want to have a good laugh. The organisation state that they "promise that coming on a trip will help you rediscover yourself to feel fabulous."
They do kayaking trips also
Women Want Adventure is a community group of like-minded women who meet up together for outdoor trips for all abilities. They also state their mission as being "to build a supportive and welcoming community of women who feel empowered, inspired and connected through outdoor adventure."
The idea of Women Want Adventure came about from conversations with women. They saw the need to empower and connect women through these types of adventures and for women to go out of their comfort zones and meet outdoors where it would be safe and supportive.
The group aims to make sure women are able to have outdoor adventures in an exciting and new way. Their events are all led by female guides and these women are all experienced and trained. These types of adventures give women the chance to improve their fitness, explore places they may never have gone to alone and also make worthwhile friendships.
Mix with other women and have a laugh!
For each adventure they have, there is a wide range of fitness and experience levels. Some women have never been hiking before and some women have a lot of experience in the outdoors. The organisation values every woman and realise that all women do indeed have a contribution to make.
When you go on one of their trips, you will generally have an adventure and see stunning landscapes.
