About this Event

This free Women Want Adventure meet up is here to help you spend more time outdoors with like-minded women. It’s often hard to find time to connect with friends, nature and split attention between work, kids, piles of laundry and Zoom meetings.

Fortunately, there’s a solution! Spend the morning with us as you walk the One Tree Hill Summit Trail.

The One Tree Hill Trail takes you from Hall Village along part of the Centenary Trail to One Tree Hill Summit Lookout. It’s a steady climb (not too steep) with sturdy steps. As you reach the summit, there are impressive views looking back towards Canberra. A lot of the walk is exposed as it runs through grazing land, so bring your hat.

FAQ'S

So, what exactly is Women Want Adventure? Do I have to be a young, super fit, experienced adventurer to attend?

Nope, you certainly do not. You can be a beginner to advanced (or anywhere in-between). Women Want Adventure is all about women coming together to try something new, make friendships, experience challenges, surprises and enjoyment of adventure. Our youngest member is mid 20’s, our oldest is 71, and 75% of women turn up individually. To find out more about what we do, click here.

Do you have local women’s trips in every state?

We’re always adventuring across Australia (we love to explore), but our HQ is based in Sydney and most trips are in NSW (for the moment). By HQ we mean Monique’s home office. She likes indoor plants and gear lists. Believe it or not, we’re a small outdoor company. Most of our guides work other jobs. Our team live between NSW, ACT and VIC, where we operate local day and weekend trips. We’re big on making sure trips are safe, welcoming, small group numbered and inclusive – so we’re just going slow.

I’m nervous to attend, is this normal?

Nerves are normal. Even the most experienced adventurers still get nervous. Part of going on an adventure is seeking the “unknown”. Our guides will support you along the way and the best part? Other women in the group are just like you. Not many women know each other and after the first few minutes of introductions you will feel like you’ve hiked or kayaked with us plenty of times before.

Are there bathrooms at the meeting location? No.

Are there steps or steep hills on this hike? Moderate hills and steps.

Do I need to register to attend? Yes, this is important to know who is coming on the day, reduce group size and record details due to Covid.

Will there be other hikes coming up? We're doing our best! We aim to have a free meet up every 4-6 weeks in the ACT. For all our other women's adventures visit our website here.
