LOVED this adventure so much!!!

Never had I thought Mt Kosciusko was on my bucket list, Women Want Adventure opened my eyes to a world of adventure and possibilities. I felt 100% supported and confident in my ability to complete the climb, which was only enhanced by their encouragement and enthusiasm. Women Want Adventure is a life changer, it has given me confidence to meet like minded women and know it's okay to go solo.
