Grading: Moderate

Our Multi-day "day pack only" trips are a wonderful opportunity for women to explore new destinations and enjoy longer periods of time without carrying an overnight pack. To ensure that you have an enjoyable and safe adventure, it is essential that you have a suitable level of fitness and preparation.

For each day of bushwalking, you should have good fitness and health and be prepared to tackle mountains with some steep ascents and descents on uneven terrain. The walks may range from 5-7 hours in duration, and you should already be engaging in regular exercise three-four times per week to be comfortable completing this trip. Prior experience in hill walking and bushwalking is highly recommended, and adding stairs to your routine will provide extra benefits.

We understand that assessing your fitness level can be difficult, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions.

The Warrumbungles is a very interesting area and Rachel's research and information about the landforms, indigenous culture and settlement information, enhanced the challenging walk. Both Rachel and Tracy are enthusiastic guides, great cooks and caring people. The tents were just fabulous. Everything was thought out. The camp ground was lovely and hte facilities all that i needed. Highly recommended!
