Our Story

How can we make adventure as accessible, connective, supportive, empowering and fun, for as many women as possible? That’s what we ask ourselves each day. That’s why you’re here, looking for your inner wild woman.

And… why shouldn’t you find her?

Women Want Adventure was founded by Australian Outdoor Education Teacher Monique Farmer. She created the community after years of looking for a tribe of women to ‘do’ outdoor activities with. To have a meaningful experience, rather than another coffee catch up. She started listening to what women really want. And most of it was about connection, community and getting outside to explore this wonderful world of ours.

But where do you start!?

Monique agreed. Getting outdoors, especially if it’s been a little while, can be intimidating. Where do you go? What socks should you wear? Who do you go with? She wondered if it could be a lot simpler. An easy stepping stone. If it could give women confidence and community to feel safe, be themselves, make mistakes, over toast marshmallows and have FUN.

Now with a fabulous team of qualified outdoor guides, Monique helps women hike, kayak, camp, canyon… even swim with whale sharks. Our team want women to try new things, feel happy and make lasting friendships with like-minded women.

We are not interested in tourist locations, big crowds or commercial groups. We care about taking women on unique specialised adventures. Places only outdoor trained guides (that’s us!) go. And we’re known to make the best Anzac biscuits in the business, and trips to help you feel terrific and belly laugh (out loud!)

Sustainability

Our passion for the environment and wild places we visit, has driven us to put in place measures to help protect, preserve and care for the environment.

We have always believed in Leave No Trace principles, and the utmost importance to take necessary steps to leave places better than when we found them. Women Want Adventure aims to minimise our impact by responsible and sustainable adventure which means to us:

  • Sustainable adventure through design and operation, operating as low impact as possible
  • Reuse items
  • Reducing waste on all trips
  • Saving usage of water and powder
  • Composting and recycling
  • Providing interpretations and education for women on trips on caring for the environment
  • Reduce the use of plastic on all trips (where possible completely)
  • Use appropriate soaps and hand washing materials in all wilderness contexts
  • Emphasis on bio security and communicating appropriate methods when out on trials/marine environments

We will continuously and enthusiastically seeks ways to support the environmental performance in all areas of our operations by working with suppliers, clients, partners, customers and the community.

Environmentally Friendly

At Women Want Adventure, we’re passionate about persevering the environments in which we adventure. In 2019, we achieved the Ecotourism certification, and recognised as a Tourism Operator within high standards to protect and care for our natural environments.

This accreditation informs women they’ve chosen to adventure with an environmentally sustainable company. To achieve this certification, Women Want Adventure was required to meet specific criteria, addressing the core principles of eco-tourism including:

  • Minimising waste on trips
  • Purchasing locally 
  • Employing locals such as our yoga teachers and hiring from local companies
  • Implementing the use of recycled paper in our office 
  • Reducing all plastic on trips
  • Working with and supporting our local community
