Ok, ladies, it’s time to get dirty!  So you have a 4WD vehicle, but do you know how to get the most from it?

Do you feel confident about taking it off-road? Do you know how to get out of a tricky situation?

Are you planning a big trip and just want to feel safer & more confident behind the wheel?

Do you have a partner who usually does all the driving & have you thought about what may happen if they couldn’t drive the vehicle due to injury or illness?  
Then this fun, one-day, short and sweet recreational 4WD training course is for you!

This particular 4WD course is not just for heavy-duty 4WD vehicles.  Whether you've got a Land Cruiser, Patrol, Forester, Rav4 or Xtrail ….. It’s all about learning new techniques, gaining the confidence to explore, learning new or improving your existing 4WD skills and empowering you to get out in the dirt and give Four-Wheel-Driving a GO!  What better way to do it … with a group of fun-loving and supportive ladies.

The minimum is two vehicles to run the course.  Maximum is six vehicles. Maximum two people per vehicle (you choose your own passenger, however both can have the opportunity to drive if they wish, or one can be passenger/observer - this will should be negotiated by the person who is booking on behalf of their passenger / or driver).  

Passengers are generally free to attend, however if you have a passenger who wishes to participate in the driving part of the course using your vehicle, they may like to share the cost of the training course with you.  Then you both get to do all components of the course and only pay half each - pretty good deal!!! 


Bookings & Full Payment must be made before January 24, 2018 to secure your place. Please note that we will need to ensure that all vehicles are appropriate for the course before confirming your booking.        In addition please see below: 

You need a robust 4WD (such as a Landcruiser, Isuzu D-Max,Nissan Patrol etc - ask if unsure) if you want to participate in the bogging recovery exercises.    

If you have an all-purpose 4WD you will only be able to observe the recovery exercises, however you’ll be able to participate in all other activities -  No 2WD’s can participate. 

You will need a two-way radio.  If you don’t have one we can hire them one for $20 per unit per day  (however we need to collect this amount in advance.)

Participants need a current & valid driving license in order to participate. 

We encourage participants to bring their own tyre gauge/compressor  IF  you have one, as we will be deflating/inflating tyres.  If you have any other equipment you’d like to demo, or ask the instructor about, you should bring it along as well.

 

Important: There are NO toilet or other facilities at the training ground – it’s squatting in the bush! eek
You should bring some loo paper & dispose of it responsibly as well as some hand sanitiser.

 

Our instructor will be Global Gypsies Director & Senior Trainer Jeremy Perks.  Jeremy is an accredited 4WD trainer & an experienced towing trainer as well as an  award-winning Tour Guide. 

 

Meeting Point & Time: Jeremy will meet us all at  Ellenbrook McDonald’s  at 8:30 a.m. SHARP to shout us a coffee & go through the theoretical component of the course. The group will then proceed in convoy to the training area in the bush, where you’ll spend the rest of the day until about 4:00 p.m.



Mobile reception is intermittent & we the course instructor asks that phones be switched off during the course (except for lunch break).

Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef

9 June 2011 by Glennie M

In 2010, I joined Adventurous Women on its first ‘Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef’ Event even though I had never tried sea kayaking before. I was amazed at how peaceful it was whilst kayaking out on the reef and saw lots of turtles. Drift snorkelling over the reef at Turquoise Bay was incredible and since we wore life jackets, even the inexperienced snorkeller felt completely at ease. I count myself lucky to have shared in this awesome camping trip with so many friendly fun loving ladies from which I have forged some wonderful friendships.

Ningaloo Kayaking Trip

June 2010 by Ness A

What ended up starting out with an accidental sleep in followed by a rush to make sure I had everything I needed was only the start of a great week and road trip ahead.  Arriving at the Rivergods depot as planned, all the gear was packed into the kayak trailor and our luggage and us ladies into the 11 seater bus we then headed towards Exmouth. 

Along the way I could feel it getting warmer so the cold of Perth became a distant memory. Having to make the usual pit stops along the way it was decided to camp overnight just outside of Canarvon to rejuvenate and obviously avoid running into any of the local wildlife along the way.  Another early morning upon us and we were back on the road only to arrive in Exmouth just in time for lunch.  After replenishing supplies we made our way out to the beach where we would spend the next week in the outdoors.

The week was filled with kayaking around Yardie Creek and beaches stopping to check out the sites as well as well earned morning snacks and lunches (I'm sorry Fee for polishing off half a can of baked beans).  For some that preferred to take a break from the kayaking mid week a hiking trip was on the agenda.  Even though there were surprises along the way 1 member in particular overcame some difficult terraine & obstacles only to come out the other end knowing she had accomplished something she never thought she'd make through with her fellow AWs there to share in such a feat and who were extremely proud of her.

I would have to say snorkeling the coral reef was the highlight of the trip for me.  Apart from surfacing every now and again to check I was still within the safety zone I could have stayed down there swimming with the ocean life for hours.  Turquoise Bay was as blues and the pictures showed and the sun as warm as a awesome summers day.  To know such a place existed in our backyard and I was there enjoying every minute was such a fantastic feeling. The nights around the campsite were filled with fun, laughter, stories, games and of course a late night walk to see what we could find or what wildlife was watching us with much interets.  All of us lent a hand to Jorien and Shaun preparing the meals and general campsite chores which really didn't feel like work at all.

Most ladies on the trip I knew but got to know more outside of our normal day to day lives and of course as always got to meet some newbies!  Even though only a week and a great week at that you definitely felt like you had a holiday and of course an adventure. After dropping off the trailor in storage for the next group we started our almost non-stop journey back to Perth (arriving ahead of schedule) and boy I was glad to be back home.  Camping is an absolute hoot no matter where you are but you can't beat the enjoyment of that first shower when home.  I definitely slept well that night!!
