Bibbulmun Overnighter - Pack n Camp Perth Hills Discovery Centre WA

Sat 3rd October 2020 | Suanne

Apart from the Noisy group at the campsite, I thoroughly enjoyed my overnighter.Being the first time I have carried all my gear in my pack, I learned about how to wear my pack and weight distribution. Through talking with other group members I learned what was absolutely necessary and unnecessary to take, and alternative items I could use on a trek. I met a lovely bunch of ladies who I hope to catch up with again. Our leader Sue O is amazing, sharing her knowledge about the flora and fauna of our bush and generally looking out for us all ensuring our health and wellbeing and safety at all times. A truely memorable hike. Thank you AW

An absolutely amazing weekend learning the ropes with the patient and kind Sue! She was a wealth of knowledge and taught us so much about our gear and how to set up, but also her knowledge of the wildflowers and the track was amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend Adventurous Women to anyone who wants to give hiking a go in a safe and supportive environment.

I went into this walk with much trepidation; it was my first connection with Adventurous Women and I had not had time to train as much as I would normally. This particular trail also held great personal meaning for me. I felt supported and cared for from the moment I met the group. Sue O and Jazzy were our leaders for the trail and ensured each of us had everything we needed to complete the journey right down to foot care. The food was plentiful and nourishing, there were numerous rest and care stops and each of us were encouraged along the way. I cannot recommend Adventurous Women, Sue O and Jazzy enough. Thanks also go to the other women on the journey for their love and support.

I went into this walk with much trepidation; my first with Adventurous Women and also well short of the training I would normally undertake. It was an emotional journey for me for personal reasons and I wasn’t sure I could get through.

Sue O and Jazzy were so supportive, so attentive and so caring, we could not fail. The support was amazing, the food was varied, plentiful and nourishing and the journey was everything I had hoped and needed.

I also want to include a thank you to the other 9 ladies who traveled this road with me. Their company and care was lovely. I cannot recommend AW enough and have already booked two more adventures.

The Camino Salvado was another successful tour from AW that I was able to tick off my bucket list ... and as always such a well organised and researched tour. The history lesson on Dom Salvado and the Benedictine Monks was very informative, giving an insight into what a visionary monk he was. The walking pace was relaxed and very achievable, with plenty of rest stops and lots of support and encouragement during the more difficult sections. The breaks and meals were delicious and well catered for, meeting all my needs for a Gluten Free diet - no concerns there. There was much fun had, great conversations held and new friendships created.... 5* experience.
