An escape from the routine of city life was what I needed. Five glorious days of sunshine, kayaking the crystal waters of Ningaloo Exmouth and connecting with an amazing group of Adventurous Women. My perfect 'back to nature' experience.' The dugongs, turtles and snorking - an added bonus

In 2010, I joined Adventurous Women on its first ‘Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef’ Event even though I had never tried sea kayaking before. I was amazed at how peaceful it was whilst kayaking out on the reef and saw lots of turtles. Drift snorkelling over the reef at Turquoise Bay was incredible and since we wore life jackets, even the inexperienced snorkeller felt completely at ease. I count myself lucky to have shared in this awesome camping trip with so many friendly fun loving ladies from which I have forged some wonderful friendships.

Fun, challenging, AWESOME! I am amazed at the activities I took part in, despite the fear, on this weekend away with Adventurous Women. Surrounded by a wonderfully supportive bunch of ladies, I abseiled down cliffs, climbed rockfaces and crawled through caves! My expectations were greatly exceeded and I am looking forward to my next adventure
Thank you AW!

My weekend experience in Mansfield was excellent. Our guide Shanee was an amazing lady who really did know her horses, people from beginners to advanced never missed any opportunity to ride to their level.
Shanee had so much knowledge to share and arranged nourishing meals on the weekend, I was really surprised of the cost for the weekend, the accommodation, food and horse riding was very cheap considering how much horse riding by itself is pretty expensive.
If people would love a bit of adventure and connect with the horses and land, I say do it!!

What ended up starting out with an accidental sleep in followed by a rush to make sure I had everything I needed was only the start of a great week and road trip ahead. Arriving at the Rivergods depot as planned, all the gear was packed into the kayak trailor and our luggage and us ladies into the 11 seater bus we then headed towards Exmouth.
Along the way I could feel it getting warmer so the cold of Perth became a distant memory. Having to make the usual pit stops along the way it was decided to camp overnight just outside of Canarvon to rejuvenate and obviously avoid running into any of the local wildlife along the way. Another early morning upon us and we were back on the road only to arrive in Exmouth just in time for lunch. After replenishing supplies we made our way out to the beach where we would spend the next week in the outdoors.
The week was filled with kayaking around Yardie Creek and beaches stopping to check out the sites as well as well earned morning snacks and lunches (I'm sorry Fee for polishing off half a can of baked beans). For some that preferred to take a break from the kayaking mid week a hiking trip was on the agenda. Even though there were surprises along the way 1 member in particular overcame some difficult terraine & obstacles only to come out the other end knowing she had accomplished something she never thought she'd make through with her fellow AWs there to share in such a feat and who were extremely proud of her.
I would have to say snorkeling the coral reef was the highlight of the trip for me. Apart from surfacing every now and again to check I was still within the safety zone I could have stayed down there swimming with the ocean life for hours. Turquoise Bay was as blues and the pictures showed and the sun as warm as a awesome summers day. To know such a place existed in our backyard and I was there enjoying every minute was such a fantastic feeling. The nights around the campsite were filled with fun, laughter, stories, games and of course a late night walk to see what we could find or what wildlife was watching us with much interets. All of us lent a hand to Jorien and Shaun preparing the meals and general campsite chores which really didn't feel like work at all.
Most ladies on the trip I knew but got to know more outside of our normal day to day lives and of course as always got to meet some newbies! Even though only a week and a great week at that you definitely felt like you had a holiday and of course an adventure. After dropping off the trailor in storage for the next group we started our almost non-stop journey back to Perth (arriving ahead of schedule) and boy I was glad to be back home. Camping is an absolute hoot no matter where you are but you can't beat the enjoyment of that first shower when home. I definitely slept well that night!!
