I had a fantastic time! I loved exploring the Flinders Ranges and getting to know the camels. The hosts/guide looked after us extremely well and were very attentive. The food cooked was fantastic and we were never hungry. The Cameleers were very patient with us explaining what/how we needed to do things for the camels. I recommend this adventure but it's not for the faint hearted!

I have done a lot of 'outdoor' activities, some more extreme than this as far as isolation, weather and trekking go. What makes this week unique is the camels. Because of this there are aspects of trekking with camels (and without porters, sherpas and other service providers), that could have been emphasized more by AW.
Loading and unloading of camels should be a 'many hands make light work' activity. If a few refuse to help it is unfair on those who do and also has more subtle negative affects on the group as a whole. There are many aspects of loading and unloading that don't just involve lifting e.g. placing and holding the blankets on together before the saddle is lifted on (almost impossible for one person if its windy), tying the knots and calming the camels. All of these activities were taught to us with patience and pride by Ryan and Greenie. The learning and doing of them gave us confidence and bonded us as a group as most required us to work together. On a practical level the participation level of people dictated how long it took us to embark on the day's walking. I felt that having some people refuse to participate had a negative affect on us as a group, however... despite all that I think we tried to not let it bother us and we made the most of what we had. The extra physical challenges, which we may not have faced to the extent we did if everyone had helped, probably pushed us to have a higher level of experience.
The thoughtfulness, organisation and care provided by Leonie to all of us was much appreciated. The way the whole trip, including to and from Adelaide, was organised was really well done.
An amazing experience in the Flinders Rangers. A challenging but rewarding trek with Adventurous Women and Flinders and Beyond Camel Trek over 7 days.

An excellent walk through a great part of the Bibb track. The group of people were great with everyone of the same capability to walk the distance which makes it more enjoyable. Everything was really well organised from the communication in the lead up to the event and everything on the day. Really enjoyed doing a longer walk and would highly recommend.

Loved this walk, & although the distance was challenging, I didn't think the track was particularly hard compared to other areas I've walked through. The beauty of this part of the Bibbulmun Track was outstanding & hopefully there will be the opportunity to visit this area again in the future

Words can not describe what an amazing experience we had, nothing can quite prepare you for this once in a lifetime adventure. It's the little moments that are not captured on camera that make it more memorable. Leonie did an awesome job as leader and kept us laughing til the end.
It was a superb day, so good.
Your food is always delicious to me as a vegan. Anyone who makes an effort is my hero :)
Thanks again, I look forward to more adventures in the future.

I had a wonderfully inspiring week away with a truly terrific group of women, very different from each other but all so warm and caring. Jess and Sue were a brilliant team, looking after our little group so very well, showing us the sights, guiding us on our treks and providing a delicious warm meal each evening. The Top End was awesome - stark and challenging and the whole experience is something I would highly recommend.

Loved the experience for my first Bibbulmun hike.
Our trusty leader guided us, fed us delightful morning tea, reminded us to drink water and complimented our hiking pace! Laughter, chatter and silence along the beautiful track.

Great walk in a beautiful part of the Bibbulmun Track. Lovely women from all different backgrounds which makes for stimulating conversation. Sue is, as always, a great hiking guide who each time I have been on a walk with her, has taught me something new about the flora and fauna. Thank you AW!

Kalamunda to Hewitt's Hut is a great walk with enough ups and downs and beautiful views to keep anyone happy. A great training walk for the C2C. Sue O is a font of knowledge and a great guide.

Great day out on the Bibb, lead by Sue O as our wonderful guide, making sure everybody is having a great time.
Awesome day out with a group of gorgeous ladies. Sue O was the perfect guide, professional & friendly with great local knowledge. This was my first hike with AW but it certainly won't be my last! Highly recommended.

Host Leonie did a great job welcoming participants, explaining how the afternoon would be run and hosting the event. Ride was well supervised and guides kept a close eye on everyone. Horses were well behaved and matched participants’ riding skills. A very enjoyable experience.
