If you're keen to bush camp by the cool of the river & the shady canopy of the forest, with the added bonus of honing your 4WD skills, this little getaway will be right up your alley!
This trip is all about making four-wheel driving accessible & fun for women! Learning 4x4 skills, safety in numbers, balance of driving & exploring with time to stop, relax and enjoy the experience, great photo opportunities, stunning views, learning more about the history, wildlife, flora & fauna of the area ... and camping at one of the most beautiful forested riverside camps in the South West!
A great introduction for those who aren't overly familiar with 4WD operations - or those who just want to learn about the area and prefer going in convoy. You don't need to be experienced in 4WDriving, as there is plenty of guidance and support along the way!
Grab a couple of girlfriends / other Adventurous Women (more the merrier) and bring them along for a great weekend full of fun & adventure!!

Meet with your Adventurous Women host at 9.30am join the convoy to Pemberton, or if you prefer to make your own way, arrive by 2pm at â€œWild at Heartâ€ cafe in Pemberton where your Adventurous Women host will meet you. Grab a cuppa/arvo tea, weâ€™ll conduct introâ€™s, meet with our 4WD Guide and chat about our next move!
After weâ€™ve met one another and had our briefing, itâ€™s time to hit the dirt and explore Warren National Park. We'll be driving in convoy on gravel through the forest and will tackle a river crossing before arriving at our base camp located within the park, late in the afternoon. This is a great little warm up for the following day, which is our Big Day Out!
Once we arrive at camp, find yourself a plot and set up your tent or swag, freshen up, kick back and enjoy a bevvie, or a cuppa. Dinner will be served by your Adventurous Women host a little later and then itâ€™s time to relax, enjoy some social time, marvel at the stars & serenity, or retire to your own space - read a book, listen to music, meditate, do a little yoga - itâ€™s your time!
Accommodation: Unpowered Campground Warren National Park
After a relaxed start to the morning, weâ€™ll be met by our 4WD Guide at camp and set off on our full-day tag-along 4WD adventure tour. This experience is so diverse, as we explore a range of different terrain in our vehicles, from forest to beach and dunes. A great introduction to 4WDriving, testing what you and your vehicle is capable of, exploring a beautiful part of our state and of course â€¦..the thrill of the adventure, all in a safe and supportive environment!
As we drive in convoy, our 4WD Guide will intermittently provide interpretive radio commentary and share more info with us when we make our stops along the way - Roger That!! There are plenty of places we stop to take in those picture postcard views, marvel at some hidden gems, experience the diversity of wildlife & birdlife pristine to the area, explore the Karri forest, learn more about the history of the area from our guide and witness the start of the largest landlocked sand dune system in the Southern Hemisphere, Yeagarup in the Dâ€™Entrecasteaux National Park! For those who had the pleasure of testing their skills at Yeagarup Dunes on our last 4WD Tagalong experience, youâ€™re in for a real treatâ€¦ something to get the blood pumping, as weâ€™re going to be tackling the more technical Callcup Hill/Summertime Track (a bucket list in the world of 4WD enthusiasts). Ground clearance on your vehicle is important for this one and if unsure please ask prior to booking.
We finish out the day on a high, head back to camp to celebrate, reminisce and share our stories of the day. You may choose to freshen off with a dip (or float around on a pool toy) in the river, go for a paddle if you bought your own kayak along, throw in a line if fishing is your thing, or simply rest and relax prior to dinner. Tonight weâ€™ve arranged a simple but plentiful camp dinner thatâ€™s sure to hit the spot!
Meals: Lunch, Dinner
Accommodation: Unpowered Campground Warren National Park
Rise and shine, breath in the fresh air! Take a dip in the river, perhaps a stroll in the forest and enjoy breakfast at your leisure - this is your time to chill out and take in the surroundings before heading back to the big smoke! We need to leave the campsite by 11.00am, however if you need to leave earlier you can, there is no need for pumping up tyres as we would've done this the day prior and we can provide clear directions on how to return to the highway. After we've said our goodbyes, you're free to make your way back to Perth, perhaps stopping en route to check out some of the lovely little southwest towns along the way.
