Spring Creek & Mt Lewis (Ho Chi Minh Trail)

 

After a great nights sleep at our exquisite Beach House, it’s time to get excited for our first hike of the adventure.

After breakfast we are met by our hiking guides who take us by private transfer to our first hike at Spring Creek.

This is a great rock-hopping adventure hidden away in a secluded valley. With no set path, we navigate towards the magnificent Spring Creek Falls.

There is beautiful wildlife in this area so keep your eyes open. There’s time to enjoy a swim in the deep rock-pools; with morning tea to replenish our energy.

We then head to Mt Lewis ( Ho Chi Mihn Trail) which starts in the Upland Rainforest of the Mt Carbine Tablelands.

Here we journey through a variety of environments towards the top of the escarpment and enjoy the Tropical region that we are hiking in.

On our return to Port Douglas, there’s time to relax and refresh – perhaps a swim in the pool, before dinner.

  • Rock hopping on no set trail for Spring Creek – 3 hours

Fern Patch

 

It’s a big day of adventure today so we stock up with breakfast and hydrate well.

Our local hiking guides pick us up EARLY and take us north to Mossman Gorge in the World Heritage Listed National Park.

Today is a cardio challenge – tough but FUN.

We make our way up the trail through a variety of terrain ranging from lowland rainforest to a coral fern-dotted clearing 1000m up.

Our efforts are rewarded with sublime views across the Main Coast Range, the coast line and the Coral Sea to the East.

Oh what a day.

We return via our private transfer to our home in Port Douglas where there is time to refresh and relax before another wonderful dinner.

Hiking guide:  challenging, rock scrambling.

Wednesday 4th October 2023

 

River Drift Snorkel and relaxation time.

After such a big day on the trails yesterday you WILL be weary.

What better way to refresh the legs than a relaxing float down the Mossman River on a lilo.

For about 3 1/2 hours we experience the cool and calming waters as we float down this beautiful waterway.

Keep your eyes out for fish and turtles.

With a private, later than usual, morning pick up and early afternoon return, the day is easy and the afternoon is yours.

Perhaps relax by the pool, take a snooze, hit the town for some shopping or indulge in the fabulous bakeries Port Douglas has to offer.

Tonight we head out for dinner and sample the local produce and hospitality.

Meals: Breakfast|Dinner

Thursday October 5th 2023
Rest day

 

Today the choice is yours.

There’s so much or so little to do in the area that today is up to you.

Perhaps a little R&R by the pool, or a trip to the reef, the SkyRail back in Cairns or something else.

We can supply you with a list of things to do or you can get together with your fellow adventurers and come up with a plan.

Lunch is on your own and we meet up at the end of the day for dinner and share our adventure stories.

Meals: Breakfast|Dinner

Northern Daintree Rainforest Day

 

Waking up at our beachfront house is pretty amazing and you may want to venture to view the beach before breakfast.

A visit to Far North Queensland is complete with a visit to the famous Daintree Rainforest – and today is the day.

There’s THREE separate hikes planned for today to ensure we maximise every opportunity to capture the beauty of the area.

After breakfast we are picked up by our local hiking guides for our stunning beach walk from Cape Kimberley to the mouth of the Daintree River.

This relatively easy walk of 6km return, offers spectacular views and wildlife spotting opportunities.

Our second hike for the day is out at Noah Creek where we criss cross the Fossil Falls Creek Hop Trail alongside the creek bed. Our goal is to rock hop all the way to Fossil Falls.

There’s options to take a dip in the small swimming holes or under the falls!

Our final hike of the day is the Jindalba Loop Trail – a must do in the North Daintree.

Our hike takes us through a stunning rainforest which includes enormous buttress rooted trees, strangler figs, king ferns and massive cycads.

We cross picture postcard creeks, so bring your water shoes.

At the end of this magic day we return to the Beach House and to relax and unwind before dinner.

One of the most common asked questions is “Will I be fit enough?”

As soon as you book your Multi Day Adventure, you can get started with training.

Through booking into the adventure early and allowing time to train, those with an introductory plus level of fitness will find this an achievable goal – provided you put in the training. 

Here’s what you get:

  • Four months BEFORE departure you will receive  hike training plan relevant to your adventure.
  • An ONLINE Group Adventure meeting that details your training, gear & equipment and checks in on your status.
  • Access to the closed Port Douglas Tropical Fitness Adventure Facebook Group.

In person Group Hike Training is available and is an optional extra for participants based in South East Queensland. The link to purchase the sessions will be made available to you once your booking is confirmed.

These training sessions are held in Brisbane once a month on a Sunday and are shared with members booked on a variety of our multi day adventures.

By following (that is “doing”) our training programs and actively moving “toward” your adventure you will become Adventure Ready.

The training programs have been developed by Women’s Fitness Adventures, based on many decades of experience and qualifications in both the fitness industry and hiking in the outdoors.  

From the moment you book on to the Port Douglas Tropical Fitness Adventure, you will begin to make new friends.

This can be either through the training, the closed Facebook Group, the online meetings or at other adventures.

Once your payment is confirmed, you will be invited into a closed Facebook Group Page that you have access to, where you can converse with your fellow hikers.

When we asked fellow adventurers what they like best about Women’s Fitness Adventures, here is what they had to say

“Friendships, broadening horizons and keeping fit” Debby. 

“Sisterhood” Anne

“Friendship, fun and camaraderie” Michelle. 

Our multi day hikes are transformational. Some kind of “magic” happens with the group.

Here is what our members had to say…

” For me the highlight was participating! I had been longing to do a multi day hike since joining Women’s Fitness Adventures 2 years ago. I jumped at the opportunity to take a risk and commit. Being physically able to complete the walk without too much difficulty was also a highlight. Having never done back to back walks I wasn’t sure if my legs would co-operate with my heart and mind! It just shows what can happen when you put one foot in front of the other and begin. 100km! “ Peta,  

And on our adventures in general…

“Everyone of you made my adventure so inspiring. The support of each other made the trails so enjoyable. We hiked and we learnt so many new things along the way. The food, the drinks, the dress ups and laughter were so special. Every time I think of something that happened it makes me full of happiness. Thank you to each one of my fellow adventurers for a wonderful experience to remember for ever. Looking forward to many more adventures in the future” Margaret.

This is a MODERATE multi day adventure.

We are out ALL DAY and cover various distances with ascents and descents.  Total distance covered is 120km over 7 days hiking.

A MODERATE level of fitness is required.

What this means is:

  • There are consecutive days hiking where we are out ” all day”, so having a good level of endurance (the ability to be out hiking all day) is necessary
  • The hiking consists of hills and trails. Some trails are beside creeks, which are uneven and have tree roots and rocks underfoot. Strong ankles, and a good level of balance and stability is required.
  • A good level of cardio fitness is required – so being able to recover your breath after hiking hills; hiking up hills/stairs without stopping every few moments (the goal is to keep going no matter how slow you might think you are).
  • Stability on legs is required so that you can handle the distance over time.

Frequently Asked Questions

You will be required to carry a day pack of approximately 5-7kg.

Your pack will include the following items: minimum of 2-3 litres water, sunscreen, swimmers(definitely), lunch, camera, hat and any items of a personal nature, including personal first aid/medications.

A comprehensive gear list will be supplied and explained once your booking is confirmed.

Brisbane participants have the option of attending monthly hike training sessions. Non Brisbane residents have a monthly call and a training plan written if desired.
