Learn to abseil on the scenic slopes of nearby mountains located behind Mt Barney Lodge.

Not only will you be excited and challenged by learning the process of knot tying, belaying and abseiling, but you will be inspired by the breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains. You can even see the Lodge from your elevated position.This activity includes a led bush walk to and from the abseiling site, and we'll be avoiding the heat of the day by starting fresh and early in the morning while the cliffs are in the shade!

Afterwards, enjoy a dip in the creek waterhole (subject to water levels), have some lunch, cool off with some watermelon and celebrate your achievements together before returning home... OR MAKE A WEEKEND OF IT AND CAMP OUT ON SATURDAY NIGHT WITH OUR AW HOST, CHRIS!  If you decide to camp, you need to contact Mt Barney Lodge Direct to book and pay for your camping spot and BYO everything (tent, food, sleeping gear etc). 

 

Our Adventurous Women ® â„¢ Host will coordinate a car pool arrangement from the meet point at Beaudesert to Mt Barney.

 

Meet Point/Time:

Beaudesert McDonalds at 6.45am - (toilets, breakfast, coffee if required)

Leave a couple of vehicles at Beaudesert & divi up into other vehicles, leaving Beaudesert at 7.00am for a 50 minute drive through to Mt Barney Lodge.

Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef

9 June 2011 by Glennie M

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.
