Our ‘Wise Women Walking™’ women’s walking group and events.

With a theme of ‘Find Yourself, Be Yourself, Challenge Yourself’, these experiences are designed for women to reflect, nurture and celebrate their identity. We do this by offering short walks, day walks, personal development activities, weekend hiking getaways, and multi-day trekking trips within Australia and overseas. Aiming to increase confidence, skills and fitness while achieving positive mental health outcomes… we walk for well-being! Our Wise Women Walkers feel a sense of achievement, empowerment, and share their journey with a small group of like-minded and inspiring women. All walks and activities are designed as beginner, intermediate or experienced so you can choose the women’s walking group events that match your fitness level and interest.

Our walks and activities are guided by our experienced outdoor leaders who are certified in remote area first aid and bush-walking leadership. All leaders carry a group first-aid kit, emergency communications device, emergency documentation and equipment.

Women’s Day Walks

Women’s Day Walks operate all year round. During the the cooler months we hike on bush trails, and in summer we head to urban and coastal areas. We visit all the wonderful National Parks, Conservation Parks, and Forest Reserves that surround Adelaide. Each destination offers varying terrain and unique experiences. The trails we choose include many that only the local residents know of, so they are quiet. Allowing our women’s walking group time to connect with nature and spot wildlife. Our group sizes are small which means our walks are relaxed and we look after the environment. Our aim is to leave the trails cleaner as we walk through, so you may see our leaders picking up rubbish left by others. To view and register for our upcoming walks, click on our Calendar above.

Weekenders For Women

Weekenders For Women are bespoke 3 or 4 night small group getaways. We travel to beautiful South Australian and Western Victorian destinations. The regions we visit provide amazing walking opportunities and local hospitality. Each destination offers varying terrain and unique experiences. Each weekender includes pack free guided walks catering for varying abilities. Comfortable transport and comfortable accommodation is all included. Our aim is to support local businesses so visits to wineries/distilleries, eateries and cafes is also included. So, join the fun and choose your upcoming Weekender adventure.

Women’s Micro Adventures

Women’s Micro Adventures are beginner multi-day hikes with 1 night overnight camping. As our hikes are pack carrying we walk on easier bush trails. The locations we visit include National and Conservation Parks and Forest reserves within South Australia. Our Micro Adventures are educational and fully supported. You will gain basic skills and learn about hiking gear and how to use it. As these trips are an introduction to pack carrying and camping, we limit participant numbers to 8 on each trip. Being a small group allows plenty of time to provide personal advice and assistance. So why not challenge yourself and choose your upcoming Micro Adventure.

Wise Women Walking Trips

Wise Women Walking Trips are our longer hiking and trekking adventures. On these trips, we travel to iconic walking trails within Australian and overseas. Our destinations offer varying terrain and unique experiences. They also provide opportunities to learn and sample local cuisine and culture. Our trips are pack free walking tours, but we do offer pack carrying alternatives. Either way, we get you ‘trip ready’ before you go with specific information nights, training walks, and access to discounted specialised equipment and clothing. We can also help with any additional flights or travel arrangements pre and post trek. So, spoil yourself and recharge on one of our Wise Women Walking Trips.

Women’s Knowledge Building

Have you ever wondered how to use a compass or read a trail map? These skills are important. Especially if you walk alone, or if you are planning to walk new bush trails. If the answer is yes, then we can help you. Our women’s Knowledge Building events teach you these skills and more. They are designed to empower our Wise Women Walking group community. By providing opportunities to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment. With events and workshops held throughout the year, choose one that interests you.

Strong Daughters

Our children need to connect with nature. That said, a connection made by playing on a nature playground is not enough. So, to help girls feel comfortable and confident in themselves and the natural environment we created Strong Daughters. Strong Daughters are multi-day hiking adventures with 1 night overnight camping. These hikes are designed exclusively for young girls and their mothers. As the hikes are pack carrying we walk on easier bush trails. The bush trails we visit are within National Parks and Forest reserves within South Australia. All our Strong Daughters adventures are educational and fully supported. Daughters will gain basic skills and knowledge about overnight hiking.
