MAKE A BOOKING

Perhaps you’ve been on plenty of day hikes, maybe some camping trips and now you want to move onto something a little more challenging …. An overnight hike, carrying all your own gear!  Or could it be that you’re completely new to hiking and maybe wondering what to pack for an overnight hiking trip? 


A common mistake for first-timers is to over pack and nothing ruins a hike more than having too much weight on your back! We think it’s important to at least get a few of the basics right when heading out on your first overnight hiking experience so you actually enjoy it …..and will want to do more! 

It’s also equally as important to realise that you will learn something new every time you head out on the trail, which is all part of the challenge and enjoyment of living out of a backpack! 

With so many products on the market, so many options and opinions, the whole idea of getting the right gear together for the first time can be extremely daunting, so we’ve designed a ‘women only’ gear workshop to help you plan and prepare for an overnight hike. 

Our knowledgeable and experienced bush walking & backpacking guide, Sue O’Connor will share valuable information to help you get the best out of your overnight hiking trip. 

The workshop will include: 

How to choose a backpack suitable for you

How to fit and adjust a backpack to provide you with maximum comfort

How to pack a backpack for an overnight hiking trip

Essential items you should carry in your backpack

Where to hire, buy or source a backpack for your first overnight experience

Additional weight of a backpack can affect your body, feet and walking experience - how to prepare yourself physically

Food & Cooking Equipment required - tips, tricks, storage and more

Water - availability, sterilisation, how to carry

Having suitable footwear and clothing

Shelter - Bibb Track Huts & Tents

Sleeping bags, mats and keeping warm

Other items for comfort, hygiene and personal safety

 

**If you have your own gear (or some of it), please bring it along to the workshop - it could be useful to show others, or alternatively you may want to know more about it and find out if it's suitable**

 

**If you'd like to join us on our Bibbulmun Track Overnight Hike, you are eligible to attend this workshop for free - Please click this link for more information & to book on the Overnighter:

. definitely an adventure travelling the Gibb River Road and exploring the magic hidden places. Not a trip for princesses - as lots of dust, dirt, sweating, long haul drives, etc. (do not pack white clothes!!) . However, these would not deter any traveller wanting this unique Australian outback experience. .Total trust in our skilled and knowledge driver, charming and professional hosts and the well organised itinerary made this trip easy for me. . Liked the distinctive orange roomy tents, stretchers and mattresses, comfortable camping chairs, hiring a suitable grade sleeping bag, the night campfires, seat rotation, plentiful, fresh and varied meals and snacks camping ch

I have just been a part of another awesome trip with Adventurous Women and, once again, am better for it! There were more "firsts" for me - quad biking, catching kounaks, eating kounaks, jet-skiing to name a few. I have changed, as I do every time I go on an AW adventure, and have formed more friendships with other women just like me - adventurous, smart, sassy, funny, caring, wanting to enjoy life more! A huge thank you and hugs to Sue for the work she did to get this trip going and for the massive amount of work she did each day to ensure our enjoyment!
