Our mission is to empower, inspire and connect women through outdoor adventure, support the conservation of the outdoors, and inspire a movement in female exploration.
The concept of Women Want Adventure was born from conversations with real women. We saw the need to inspire, empower and connect women through adventure to break out of their comfort zones and explore the outdoors in a safe and supportive environment.
As a community, we aim to give women access to outdoor adventure in an exciting and new way. Our trips are inclusive and lead by outdoor experts to go beyond non-tourist locations. They give women the opportunity to get fit, explore places they may never have ventured alone, make new friends and laugh!
For each trip there is a wide range of fitness and experience levels; from women who have never been hiking before to women who have extensive experience in the outdoors. We value every member of our community and know all women have a contribution to make. What’s powerful about our community is the diversity of women with different needs, desires and goals.
When you take a trip with Women Want Adventure, you immerse yourself in outdoor experiences filled with spontaneous adventure, stunning landscapes and purposeful connections to community and the environment. We have hiked mountains together, kayaked down rapids, watched whales breach from sea kayaks and discovered waterfalls in Australia’s best National Parks and overseas destinations.
Through outdoor adventure we have learned that together as a community, we can jump headfirst into adventure, grow as outdoors women and instil confidence in all aspects of our lives.
Wow what an adventure! I was a bit hesitant at the start with travel and thoughts holding me back about attending but I’m so glad I said, Yep I’m going to go! To say the least, the environment we were in was truly breathtaking and so grounding. Monique exudes a positivity and energy that leaves you wanting to explore and learn more. I felt so supported by everyone there and am happy to have made new adventure friends. It's funny, after the trip I felt so grateful and inspired for life. Definitely recommend it to anyone!
Incredible weekend at Megalong Valley! We were totally alone surrounded by bush and equip with a roaring fireplace. Those who started as strangers, ended up as new adventure friends!
I loved being surrounded by like-minded people who were brought together by their love of adventuring and the outdoors. The Blue Mountains Weekend was a fantastic mix between activities and relaxation.
The unknown and a little courage make for such a great adventure. I had been on a proper hiking trip before and my first in The Blue Mountains was fantastic. I met a whole bunch of new friends and had plenty of laughs along the way. An accomplishment as well as a really cool adventure while hardly leaving the city. I'm ready for the next one!
Monique is an amazing Leader and I will definitely be back for more adventures.
What an absolutely amazing walk from Kiama to Gerringong, the company, the views, the entire experience. I really value the effort and time that goes into planning. It was so personal and the Anzac cookies are to die for! Thank you so much for such a great day.
I adored every bit of it. Thank you to Monique, her wonderful Leaders and our beautiful group of ladies. Made the day an absolute delight. Can't wait for the next one. The obligatory Anzac cookie did not disappoint.
