Here is what Lisa Perkins had to say about her first hike in the Royal National Park last month:
Thank you so much for a Sunday morning hike. It was beautiful! I was a little nervous to attend not knowing anyone but loved the group of ladies. I ll defiantly be back for more walks!
PS- The 5th April is Women Want Adventures 3rdBirthday! Volunteer Jess may just bring a little cake to celebrate. Thank you for coming to join us and celebrate empowering and connecting women through adventure.
We look forward to seeing you on this hike.
Are there bathrooms at the meeting location? No. Best to go beforehand.
Are there steps or steep hills on this hike? A few steps, one steep hill, but not overly long so will take it slowly. All our meet ups ensure we support all women no matter your fitness or experience level.
Can I bring my dog? Sorry! No pets on this hike.
My 15 year old daughter would like to attend, can she come? We believe young women should spend more time outdoors, however we ask for these walks to be for women over 18 years only, sorry!
I missed a spot, will there be more walks in and around Sydney? Yes! We re working with great Volunteers and our Team to host free walks most months. Keep an eye on our website www.womenwantadventure.com.aufor updates or our Facebook Page.
