Is our group right for you? We’re a social group of women over 45 years old. If you’re a bloke, or 30-something, we’re probably not your thing.
The group works best if you can commit to training regularly with us. It doesn’t work so well if you are a casual drop in. You need to train weekly with us before you join one of our multi-day adventures. If you live south or west, you’ll likely find our national park training walks too far away to attend on a regular basis.
How fit do you need to be? If you can walk a hilly 12km on bush tracks in 3 hours or less, with a day pack, you’re fit enough.
Before joining us, we like to know about your bush walking experience. We also prefer if you join us on a few hikes as a visitor so we know you are fit enough for our 12km/3 hour expectation. We are not a trek training group and our leaders are all volunteers not paid coaches. We do not cater for beginners although our leaders and other members will happily help you become ready for your next bush walking challenge whether that be in fitness, equipment knowledge or skills.
Not quite what you’re looking for? You may also want to consider The Bush Club or Sydney Bush Walkers, two well-established bush walking groups local to Sydney. Don’t think you’re fit enough? Try National Parks Association or one of the Heart Foundation Walking groups.
Looking for a Sydney women’s only group, want to improve your fitness or want to gain bush walking experience? Try Wild Women on Top, FitTrek or Diamonds in the Rough. All of these businesses run programs for beginners (as well as experienced) bush walkers and have coaches to guide them. A number of our members started their love of bush walking here.
We’ve had a lot of new people join recently! To allow us all a bit of time to get to know our new walking friends, we’re currently closed to new members. We hope to open again soon.
