About this Event

For this summer women’s trip, we have sit on kayaks to enjoy the waters of the Port Hacking. From beginners who want to try out kayaking, this is the perfect day on the water. The river is wide with stunning bush land views and millionaire mansions! 

Our meeting point in Bundeeda is just a short 30 minute drive from the Sutherland, a 20 minute enjoyable ferry ride from Cronulla or one hour from central Sydney. After meeting in Bundeena we catch the shuttle bus to Audley to start our paddle back to Bundeena. 

Once the kayaks are loaded and your leader takes you through a skills briefing, you can hit the water, paddling around the bends of the river and taking in the peaceful views. There are landings to pull up as we paddle and your leader will choose a nice place for morning tea. A good time to go for a swim!

FAQs

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yes. You must be over the age of 18 years to attend this trip.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please contact our friendly Team at womenwantadventure@outlook.com

What do I need to wear in the kayak?

Light shorts and an exercise top with swimmers under is best. A long sleeve top to help protect you from the sun is also advised. Hats with a draw string are helpful on windy days.

Do I need to be fit for this trip?

A minimal level of fitness is required. If you can walk around the block at home, you are more than capable of attending. Don't let your thought of "I'm not good enough" hold you back! We support and encourage all women. You will be in a double kayak which helps with the paddle effort.

What if it's raining?

Women Want Adventure trips still go ahead in all types of weather unless electrical storms.
