SA Group Leader / Tour Leader
Leonie is our girl on the ground in South Australia, organising events in the local area. She is an avid runner and hiker, and has participated in marathons and endurance events, but is just as happy walking with a group and sharing her knowledge or helping those in need. She is adventurous, bubbly and outgoing and loves cooking.
If you're in SA look for her trekking the Adelaide hills or enjoying a nice drop of Barossa wine
Kokoda Track Guru Jazzy has always preferred hiking boots to high heels and loves the thrill of a challenge. She's trekked the globe - conquering Kokoda, Mt Kilimanjaro, Mt Kinabalu, Kalar Patar, Everest Base Camp & the Sandakan Death March.

NSW Group Leader
Living in the Blue Mountains I spend a lot of time hiking this amazing area but have also walked the overland track in Tassie, The Routeburn track in NZ and sections of the Bibbulman in WA.
Apart from hiking I also enjoy trail running, yoga and all round adventuring, and have a passion for Nepal, visiting regularly for a charity and acting as the group leader for a charity trek.
QLD Group Leader
I've been bush walking and involved in outdoor activities with friends since I was a teenager and I still haven't lost my love of the outdoors, looking for new adventures and challenging the boundaries.
I joined Adventurous Women in 2018 as a host so I could share my passion with other like minded women and enjoy seeing them experience the magic of the outdoors and the ever changing scenery.
I'm still in awe of sunrises and sunsets and love birds and dragonflies, amongst other things.
Anna loves to be in the water either swimming or kayaking. She loves a challenge and will have a go at anything, although she is scared of heights! She loves the theatre, movies and going to all the festivals that Perth has to offer. One of Anna's favourite annual events is the Augusta Adventure race when the Adventurous Women camaraderie and team spirit really shines!! Anna believes that Adventurous Women gives you freedom to be yourself in an inclusive and supportive environment and provides opportunities to try new things with likeminded women.
Maz believes in all things adventurous. You will find her out of her comfort zone exploring remote wilderness any time! She's always up for a challenge and loves connecting with people and nature in its finest form: ocean kayaking, hiking, mountain biking, boating, skiing and diving.
She has extensively travelled the globe on a shoestring and is intrigued by indigenous cultures and anything that's out of the norm!
