Taste of Adventure Outback Experience

Loved being with the ladies. I probably would have liked more activities to put myself to the 'test' but thoroughly enjoyed the weekend nevertheless. You do a great job and I made at least one new friend out of the weekend :)

Everest Base Camp and Kala Patar Nepal

This was a truely amazing Adventure!!! Trekking through villages, along the river, over suspension brigdes, many many many steps up (and down), strolling Nepalese flats, crossing rocks, climbing steep and small pathways, all were part of the journey! It is such an impressive area, with beautiful scenery, wide views, and especially the MAGIC of this magnificent place contributed to my experience. Reaching the Everest Base Camp at 5356m was one of the many highlights along the way! It is about the journey, not about the goal. I will never forget this!!!!

MR bike, sip and surf

Fantastic weekend with a bunch of lovely AW women who were all there to enjoy themselves and have some fun. Even the traffic hold ups were a bit of a hoot!!

Trip to Thailand

This was my first overseas adventure with AW and it didn't disappoint. Everything was taken care of, including things I hadn't thought about! There was a great range of activities to experience and also opportunity to branch out by yourself. There was a lot of flexibility; as in you could opt out of certain activities too. It was great to have that safety net and also be able to share your experiences with newfound friends. Extremely well organized without being regimented - AWesome!

Great holiday experience for the inexperienced traveller. Got to know some wonderful ladies and enjoyed spending fun times with them. Group very friendly and support and looked after each other. Tour guide fantastic, looked after our every need and everyone related really well to her. Given me much more confidence to go on other trips with AW. Great way to travel

Northern Thailand

I was delighted with the whole itinerary and everything about the trip. I particularly enjoyed the times when we took the less touristy and well-beaten tracks and found more out of the way places of interest. It was my first adventure with the "Adventurous Women" Group, and since we all survived, hopefully not my last.

Outback Adventure October 2012

Could not have had a better group of women, ages 23-79. Host fantastic, Guide/driver/cook-everything looked after us from start to finish. Her knowledge and energy was amazing, and all those on this will agree that it was a great trip from start to finish. You think spending long hours on the bus would be a pain, but the time went so fast, you didn't even notice. Camping under the stars was great, Sounds of silence dinner fantastic. Walks incredible.

Northern Thailand November 2012

The Northern Thailand AW trip was a perfect mix of some "rougher" experiences, - trek and hilltop tribe visit - with plenty of "girly" opportunities - shopping, massages, shopping, mani's and pedi's, shopping! I loved the beautiful countryside we travelled through and the Thai people, (plus their food and craft skills), were wonderful! These elements, and of course the other ladies I travelled with, helped make my travel experience unforgettable for all the right reasons! Thank you Sue!

Out back Tour

I found the whole trip absolutely amazing. It's such a different holiday to join a group of people that you don't know, gel as a group and spend a great adventure together. I really found the break has totally refreshed me and I recommend it to everyone I talk to!! I felt the trip had total balance...enough adventure, enough down time, a great tour leader, great food ( great not eating out!!) I made some great friends and found the experience of getting to gel with people of such different ages and from such varying backgrounds such a life learning experience.People think I was brave to go on a trip where I knew no-one..to me that's what made it so great..it's a big wide world and it does you so much good to get out of your normal "circle" of life and living.

Northern Thailand

A wonderful, well planned and diverse activity tour. A great insight into the wonderful people and sights of Northern Thailand and plenty of free time to explore and discover for yourself. The other members of the group made for a memorable trip.

Bali Retreat

My trip to the Bali retreat was amazing. I had know idea what to expect but it was beyond anything I could have imagined. I went with my daughter who has been through a rough year and she just needed some time out, so we were probably a bit withdrawn from the rest of the group for the first few days, but the best thing about the retreat was that you did not have to join in if you did not want to.

The bike ride on the Tuesday was awesome and the day in Ubud was just great, I loved it so much am seriously thinking of going back next year. Karen has the retreat running to perfection and I am still on a high after being home 4 days. And the best thing of all is I am finally over the coffee addiction, have not had a cup of coffee for over a week,feel great for it . Yahoo

Reef N Rock

Thank you AW for taking us on an Awesome Adventure through out the vastness of WA and showing us her beauty in many hidden pockets. The georgeous group of women ensured hours spent on the bus were insignifincant compared to the spectatcular trip we were embarking upon. The accommodation was as fantastic as it was varied as we enjoyed the contrasts from eco tents to shearing quarters all with lots of character. Highlights were many but I loved the Pinnalces, Red Bluff took your breath away with it's beaty, Kayaking at Ningaloo reef was so amazingly spectacular and when we thought we had it enjoyed it all, it was outdone by the beauty of Karijini and our adrenalin packed day of cannonying, abseiling, paddling and rock climbing. It was a well planned out trip and I would do it again in a heart beat. Well done!

Would of loved to spend more time at Red Bluff and Karijini National Park to explore more of the wonderful gorges in the area.

REEF & ROCK

Spectacular scenery, awesome activities and a fantastic group of ladies to travel with. This tour was well worth the trip from the east coast. AW and their partner operators provided experiences that went beyond my expectations. Thanks for a professionally run tour and memories that I will treasure for the rest of my life.

What a fabulous well-kept secret this sanctuary is! It was good to see that there was no rubbish along the trails either.

A fantastic way to spend a Sunday, I had an absolute ball crawling around the bush playing commando. Great group of women, I felt like a kid again

Laser Combat & Chow Down

I was stepping out of my comfort zone and wow it was not what I thought it would be. Great team work, food and company. Would do it again.

Laser Combat

Yet again I enjoyed every minute of a great Adventurous Women event! Fabulous fun doning the camo gear, smearing my face with more camo colors, then pretending to run around the place shooting at everyone! What an amazing experience - another 1st for me, but won't be the last. The absolutely scrumptious home-made gourmet meal at the end was awesome, washed down with a few drops of bubbly. A great way to get to meet and make peace with some of the other ladies I spent the day shooting at! Definitely looking forward to doing this one again... bring it on!!

LASERTAG

Another fantastic event with The AWesome Adventurous Women! As always, the event was well organised and the mix of women was great.

Champagne and Sparkling (Susan Saleeba)

Great afternoon/evening as usual. Great to meet new people (and I'm getting better at small talk!!!) Susan was a great speaker and promoted a really worthwhile cause without forcing the fundraising down your throat!!

Champagne and Sparkling Conversation

I really enjoyed this event. Its my first non strenous event :) . The room was intimate enough without being too small or too big. Everyone new and existing members were very friendly. The format was relaxed and informal (which I enjoy and prefer) Im looking forward to the next event.

Sparkling Conversation & Champagne

I really love how you always have inspirational women come & talk with us AW ladies! As well it is a great opportunity to catch up with old & new AW ladies & enjoy a relaxing drink.

Abseiling Bluff Knoll Adventure

Fantastic weekend with many challenges in overcoming certain fears and hurdles. Wonderful support from everyone who attended this awesome weekend as you were all so friendly and extremely encouraging. Would do it again in a heartbeat. Thanks for organising this great outing through Adventure Out who were very professional and really well organised.    

13/04/2012 Ameliam

This was such a great trip, was nice to not have to do to much thinking as it was well organised, which mean't that i could enjoy walking and relaxing!

10/04/2012 Patricia R

NSW wine kayak

This was a well organized trip with a competent and encouraging guide. The pace was suitable for all and the instructions given were for beginners were clear and helpful. The food provided was great. The only improvement I would suggest is for the operator to provide personal flotation devices that were not so old and used.

Bluff Knoll Abseil

This was an absolutely amazing trip. All the ladies were fantastic and we bonded really well as a very supportive, caring group.  On many, many occassions individual ladies were seen encouraging others in an extremely positive way. On Castle Rock ladies often paused on their own abseil to wait for a less confident lady, and abseil beside her. We were well prepared to act as each others' support, and religiously performed safety checks on each other, and offer encouragement especially on the Bluff Knoll abseil when a pair of ladies were alone on a ridge between pitches. The achievievement of ALL the ladies as they enthusiastically met the challenges head on, overecoming their fears an doing things they never thought possible was truely inspirational ... all the while with huge smiles on their faces!!

Just a wonderful variety from the tough climb to Mt Kinabalu summit, to trekking along the Headhunters Trail, walking through the most magnificent National Parks to experiencing the true Borneo. Thanks Sue Hile for making this happen. I just had the most amazing fun.

05/03/2012 Ameliam

Thanks to AW (especially Sue, Brad and Sue!) for organising such a fabulous Cape to Cape experience. It was well organised, the food was amazing, the scenery was spectacular and the company was hilarious. What more could you ask for?

10/04/2012 Anna W

Having now completed the Cape to Cape journey, a long-time dream of mine, gave me such appreciation for our beautiful landscape, rugged coastline and magnificent oceans that demand our respect. Being given the means and support to do this, at times, challenging walk by Adventurous Women to fulfill this rewarding experience makes me feel so privileged. Sharing the week with such a lovely like-minded group of women up for the challenge was uplifting as we endeavoured, no matter our age, to complete this renowned track.

Kayak, wine & oyster tasting
Wonderful!  The weather was good, the water was calm and the oysters & wine were great. Our tour leader was charming & hilarious which added to the experience. Would recommend it.

15/04/2012 Sharon S

I had an absolute amazing time, a good mix of everything, esp loved the long boat rides down the river, could have done that all day. Great bunch of like minded women.  Only one thing was the transfer that were meant to be included (x 2 - transfer from airport to hotel & luggage moved to hotel during the jungle trek) had to pay for myself.  But not a bid deal as being Asia it wasn't overly expensive anyway.  But overall had a blast.  Now my sister wants to come on the next trip I do.

Surf Sip 'n Cycle

As always, it was an absolute pleaseure spending a wonderful weekend with some fabulous AW ladies. The ladies were extremely impressed, and very much enjoyed meeting each other and having a lot of fun. Tam and Rob from Dirty Detours were fabulous as always. Even with one of our riders who had a bit of a wake-up call on how unfit she was, thus walking rather than riding over a few stretches, Rob was wonderfully encouraging and put her very much at ease. Josh was as enthusiastic as ever, and very disappoionted and apologetic about the hazardour surf conditions. He definitely made the correct decision in deciding it was unsafe, and thus not feasible. He also offered the alternative of paddling on the river, but the windy cold conditions would have also made that unpleasant. The ladies all definitely agrreed... so we went to plan B. That being some fabulous coffees at the Blue Ginger Cafe (highly recomended by Rob and Tammy and they were right!) followed by the cheese factory, chocolate factory, Provadores and the Nut & Cereal factory! The accomodation at Surfpoint was not as favorable as it has been in the past. The kitchen facilities were very lacking - all the cutlery was plastic, as were the dozen or so plates and there were only perhaps 6 mugs and no glasses at all. Unfortunately we also experience the "quiet after 10pm" rule was completely ignored and unenforced. A very rowdy group of rugby players and ladies returned sometime around 3am and we all knew about it. It was a shame as it put a bit of a damper on things.

Wow! What a trip! This was my first overseas adventure tour and I can't wait to book on for another trip soon. Our host, Sue, was everything a host should be; a leader, fun to be with; organised and most of all passionate about our experiences. From Ronnie the orangutan, the sombreness and tranquility of the Sandakan war memorial to the trekking and the sounds of the jungle at night, this was an adventure I will remember forever. The only thing I found disappointing was the bats not making an appearance. However, I was assured that this was unfortunately not under the control of our tour guide, Duke, nor Adventurous Women.....maybe next time!! Thanks Adventurous Women for a fabulous and memorable trip through the heart and soul of Borneo.

High Tea @ the George

It was a thoroughly enjoyable event and great introduction to the group. Setting and food /service was excellent....company was great. I found the other ladies easy to chat to and was made to feel welcome. Thanks Lorelle for a lovely event.

11/03/2012 Ro G

The trip was interesting, exciting, challenging and occasionally relaxing. I loved every minute, I can't think of anything that could improve the trip. As with all of my AW trips so far, the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. No expectations placed upon us, just be ourselves and enjoy.
