Loved the bike ride to the wineries. Loved the whale watching on the jet boat. Great weekend, lots of different experiences with a fun group of women and excellent weather to top it off. Thanks AW. Thanks Sue O

Had a great weekend very well organized great food and a lovely tour guide. I will travel with you again. Murdoch train station maybe a better pick up point Cockburn was a bit of a walk with gear.

thoroughly enjoyable weekend. the highlights for me was the opportunity to travel and interact with some fabulous women. i think the group got along well and there were many laughs and stories along the way. there were plenty of photo opportunities, at both upmarket and quaint wineries, along roads well traveled and those not so much, swims and sunsets at the beach and of course out on the ocean watching the whales migrating ( not only whales but a whole myriad of sea creatures including seals, turtles and dolphins) The scenery was picturesque and unique, i forgot how the south west is a pretty place especially this time of year. we were completely catered for, and not left wanting for anything.

this was a brilliant trip for me to be honest, I'm struggling to find anything to provide as 'constructive criticism' because really, I feel that everything within your control was managed with grace and friendliness and to the best of everyone's ability

A fantastic trip. The scenery was spectacular, the weather was perfect and it was a pleasure to be walking every day. I loved the simple routine of each day and could have kept going. There was clearly a lot of organisation behind the scenes, but for us, everything ran smoothly and effortlessly. The food was fresh, wholesome and tasty - I especially loved all the morning teas. Sue O did a great job of guiding and being inclusive to the group, Sarah was lovely and the group bonded really well. The accommodation was great and the spa after a long day of walking was a bonus. Thanks for everything AW.

Very well organised and Sue was very well informed and patient!

This was my first hike and I would have to say, one of the best things I have ever done. I will definitely be doing more with Adventurous Women! What a diverse group of women on this hike, how lucky was I to experience and share, the sisterhood is alive and well!. Sue and Sarah were exceptional hosts, their knowledge of the area and difficulties early settlers experienced and Aboriginal significance was a history lesson given to us daily. Great company, lots of laughs and an experience like no other ......

I had a great time. We rode through beautiful and interesting scenery. I was made to feel very welcomed. Will recommend this to my friends.
I cannot fault one thing on this guided walk. Everything was seamless. Sarah and Sue both very professional and ensured everyone enjoyed themselves. Well organised with a few surprises e.g. having morning tea ready for us at Ellensbrook. As I am proud of our FNQ environment both Sue and Sarah showed a passion for their state WA. I like that.

Loved the trip. Met some lovely girls. Accomodation was great, as were activities. Was on my own so could have done without so much free time. An hour here and there would have been better with extra classes or walks to fill the time during the day. Love reading but quite noisy in Occassion in the Lodge lounge whilst food being prepared and felt strange not to help in the kitchen as Sue and Bettina felt like part of the group and not just organisers. Loved the idea of a quiet and a chatty position on the walk. Front or back. Would suggest torch for those in chalets. Very dark in walk back of an evening so had to bring phones with us to light the way home.

The whole day was organised really well from the riding school perspective... they made all participants feel comfortable. Seemed like everyone really enjoyed themselves and the lunch provided by Leonie
10/09/2017 Katie P
The whole day was absolutely fantastic. Leonie was professional and inviting and went out of her way to make sure everyone was happy, as she always does. The food she provided was so much more than I expected, but in reality I should have known. Leonie and AW go above and beyond the 'norm'. Delicious, fresh and more than enough food and drinks were provided.

Very professional operation. The guides, Sue and Sarah, are amazing superwomen. They were professional, friendly, fun and very competent. Everything ran so smoothly, they made it look easy, even though i'm sure an event such as this involves lots of organization and logistics.

Fantastic weekend. Very worth it. Accommodation excellent
This was my first experience with any form of group adventure away with people I do not know and I found it fantastic ! The organiser Sue is an amazing person and always made sure everyone was ok and had us organised in a flash. This will not be my last adventure. I loved mixing with like minded people and found this refreshing.
08/09/2017 Diane Jaksa
Loved every minute of it. Food was lovely and meal times were so well organised. Accommodation was great also. Perfect amount of free time and the change of plans on the Sunday worked well.
08/09/2017 Janelle O
Rather special walk. Amazing coastline so I've been to places that I'm not likely to have seen otherwise. The accomodation exceeded expectations and the food was excellent as always. Sue and Sarah were both excellent guides / hosts. I was grateful that sue trusted that I knew the " rules" and allowed me to stride out in front at times. I felt safe and supported at all times. The only suggestion I can make is perhaps to not have cabbage on the menu before a gruelling beach walk. Delicious .... but there were going to be consequences! Might have affected the weather pattern on the west coast.

This is my second time at the Dwellingup Yoga retreat with Sue and Bettina. It's such a fun way to relax and unwind. The surroundings is picturesque really makes it hard to leave. This is a well organised retreat but in a casual way. Yoga in the morning with a guided meditation to follow. The food is amazing and caters to all individual needs. I had the pleasure of being the Massage Therapist and Reflexologist at the retreat for the first time and the response was overwhelming in a good way. Would highly recommend it to all women who are in need of some wellness and mindfulness. Show less

Fantastic week long hike, diverse terrain, scenery, wildflowers, with fantastic guides, excellent food, accommodation and company.
02/09/2017 Janice M
i thoroughly en joyed the whole weekend, beautiful accomodation, great food and lots of fun i'll certainly be coming to more Adventures hats off to Sue for her huge enthusiasm and energy :)

Fantastic walk - fantastic group of ladies - fantastic food - very well done. But don't be decieved - this is a hard walk!!! Harder than I imagined.
02/09/2017 Kay W
Had a great time - haven't laughed so much for years!! Loved the camping - found the tents, camp beds and mattresses all very comfortable
17/08/2017 Jiulie Duffy
I had an amazing and wonderful time. The team could not have done more to ensure my comfort, enjoyment and satisfaction. As a first time camper, I was so surprised about the ease of living & comfort. I really loved all the daily adventures we were offered which I embraced and felt proud of achieving. The food was outstanding - whole food & healthy with special care about my pescatarian needs. Sue H is an outstanding person - I have so much admiration for her, as well as Sue O'C - I was a bit out of my comfort zone on many levels initially and she made sure that I was really safe, emotionally and physically, Mike was amazing - a prefect choice for a group of women and he, with the Sue's, worked tirelessly to ensure our pleasure. I have already recommended the Company to straight & Lesbian friends
02/08/2017 Jen Scantlebury
The trip completely met my expectations. There was no way I would have ever seen so much of the Kimberley without the experience and expertise of Sue, Sue and Mike. You all made the trip so enjoyable, comfortable and informative. The food was amazing, and you catered for everyone's dietary needs so well. All the little extras like the outdoor shower at Purnululu and carrying morning tea on the walks are really nice and show how much you care. I would highly recommend Adventurous Women tours and hope to join you again in the future.
02/08/2017 Kate M
It was fab. Never done Yoga before and Naomi our instructor was fantastic. She showed me many additional poses I can use to relieve my back pain.

Excellent workshop, fabulous teacher
I am so grateful for Leonie's passion and hard work in AW SA branch! The Yoga afternoon was wonderful. I connected with and made some new friends too!🌹
26/08/2017 Karen P
A fantastic trip in an area I would never have experienced without going on this AW trip. And with a great bunch of ladies and superb hosts! Thankyou so much!
02/08/2017 Terri Ellis
I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. It was very well organised and the food was fantastic. Both Sues and Mike were wonderful hosts/ guides. Maybe another trip could include Mitchell Falls and have a day less at Purnululu
02/08/2017 Anne Jackaman
Well organised and comfortable tour. Good balance of activities and down time.
02/08/2017 Jenni C
This was a totally different experience for me and it was fantastic. I loved the everchanging scenery and brilliant colours of the Kimberleys. The planning of each day ensured that we were able to see many different aspects of the area, and the two Sues and Mike looked after our every need.
02/08/2017 Julie P
Loved every bit of it. We couldn't have asked for nicer, happier, friendlier kinder and professional guides - best guides ever! I am not sure why they say it is a no princess policy, because I truely felt like a princess we were so well looked after. Fellow walkers were wonderful, would love to repeat the experience just how it was. Loved that we had an itinerary that was flexible and allowed us to stop and look at things and take photos whenever we liked. There was no race to the end. It was ok to chatter and ok to have some quiet time amongst the majesty of the beautiful trees. There were times when we were walking amongst the Karri that I would spontaneously think "I am so happy". It was such a nice break from the normal hustle of life.
16/06/2017 Karen Hayes
Another fabulous trip with AW - everything planned to a T .... aside the weather!. Great group of like minded ladies ..... love the NO Princess policy. Boarded the bus in Leederville, felt very safe being driven by AW guides, despite the rain & stormy driving conditions. Plenty of coffee and toilet stops enroute. Warm, dry accommodation with hot showers in Donnelly River Boarding House ..... fabulous food prepared by our AW guides .... Achievable distances when trekking the Bib ..... accurate pre trek briefing meant you knew just what to expect the following day and was able to plan what to pack in day pack ..... 5* Adventure
30/06/2017 Judith B
I just really loved the whole trip - everything about it was great. Everything was really well organised but easy going too. Food great (thanks Brad, Anna and Sue) and accommodation just right. I haven't done an organised walking trip before (other than Nepal in the late 80s) and I found it so enjoyable. The south west forests are incredible. I have requested to join AW - I think your company is amazing - and will certainly be doing other trips through AW. Sue is an excellent advertisement for your company.
30/06/2017 Dawn Woods
Thoroughly enjoyed this adventure with the group! The hiking was quite challenging on the 2nd day but the gorgeous landscape we were travelling was definitely worth it. The scenery was simply amazing! Our guides were knowledgeable and always helpful, the food supplied was yummy and the ladies I met were heaps of fun and their stories inspirational. Thank you once again Adventurous Women for a great trip!
24/06/2017 Kim M
What a fantastic 4 days shared with 11 amazing women. Everything about this trip was so enjoyable. I can't thank Sue and Anna enough for their care of us and their sense of fun. To the rest of the women (no princesses...) thanks for your friendship. We all shared lots of laughs. Sue your giraffe outfit cracked me up.
16/06/2017 Mandy Szeliga
Had a fantastic time. Well organised, food was great, guides were fun,patient and knowledgeable. Good value. Definitely recommend your organisation.
16/06/2017 Helen Moss
Fantastic trip. I would have liked to depart a little earlier to spend an hour or so at Bridgetown. I overheard some girls saying what a lovely little town and they would love to visit some of the shops they saw as they had not been there before. Even though I have been there many times, its always a town where I like to fossick around the shops
16/06/2017 Dianne Harvey
Wonderful. Well organised. Great food. No complaints.
16/06/2017 Kay W
As usual everything is perfect, cannot fault it.
02/06/2017 Jannene Hardie
Absolutely magnificent location , want to go back and canoe down river and do some crazy adventurous activities. Good way to group bond .
02/06/2017 Robynne francis
Enjoyed the activity, group of enthusiastic ladies to do it with. Would have liked an option for coffee after the session (particularly as a day time activity). The lounge area encouraged people to hang around and chat, which was great.
11/06/2017 Michelle I
Afternoon was great - very entertaining & worth the cost
11/06/2017 Jo Armstrong
I really enjoyed Escape Hunt! The time passed so quickly and it was a fun way to exercise the grey matter.
11/06/2017 Tania Rover
I had a lot of fun attending the recent escape hunt with Adventurous Women. It was my first time and will definitely be getting involved in future events.
11/06/2017 Alicia P
Good get together with new ladies. Always nice to meet different people at the events.
11/06/2017 Lesley Thomas
Such a fantastic group activity to do... really good way of having people that dont necessarily know each other to interact in a positive way
11/06/2017 Katie Pihodnya
I had a great time. Was a lot of fun & challenging. Would definitely go back & have recommended it to my friends
