We discover old horseshoe lagoons and learn about the site of the World War II internment camp during lunch on the riverbank.

Today we cross the little creeks that feed the red gum forests and box woodlands and gently climb the sandy cliffs covered in native pine and native lilies, rising to a magnificent view of the vast Murray River floodplain.

It’s a short transfer across the river to board our houseboat.

Marvel at the geological layers in the cliffs formed by wind, ocean, freshwater lakes and the river.

Returning to our houseboat we settle in for a delicious breakfast before our daily hike begins.

With lunches packed, we depart for a day of discovery.

We see Aboriginal Canoe trees, dense red gum forest and small islands hidden along the way.

FITNESS TRAINING

The walking is introductory with daily hikes ranging from 10km – 14 km. The terrain is relatively flat with two gentle cliff climbs up and down a 40 metre rise.

You will need an average level of fitness to participate fully in this adventure.

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 level of fitness will find this an achievable goal – provided you put in the training. 

Here’s what you get:

  • A hike training plan relevant to your adventure.
  • Online Group Adventure meetings for fitness motivation, hints, tips and Q&A sessions

These sessions are ideal if you are:

  • Wanting to benchmark your fitness level
  • Looking to meet other women on adventures
  • Keen to boost your fitness level.

The training program has been developed by Women’s Fitness Adventures, based on years of experience and qualifications in both the fitness industry and hiking in the outdoors.

SUSTAINABLE ADVENTURES

Our fabulous adventures allow you to create memories and friendships that last a lifetime. At Women’s Fitness Adventures we are also committed to sustainable adventures so that the places and spaces we go will also last well beyond our lifetime and the many generations to follow. Sustainability starts when you join our community and never ends.

We are committed to the principles of minimal impact, leave no trace, tread lightly and give back to the local community. Here’s how we do that for all of our adventures (short and long)

Consumables

  • We encourage “no plastics” so bringing refillable water bottles, reusable cups and cutlery where applicable and using lunchboxes where plastic can be minimised
  • It’s a leave no trace principle, so all food scraps, toilet waste and rubbish items are carried out. (See our Masterclass on Toileting for the Trail)
  • We are committed to reducing paper waste inside our organisation and have implemented a paperless booking system.

Transport

  • We encourage the use of public transport or carpooling to minimise the use of motor vehicles.
  • When flying, we encourage you to offset your emissions by purchasing carbon offsets.

Minimal impact

  • We have a “tread lightly” policy where we stay on known tracks and paths, minimising our impact to bush, plants and wildlife.
  • Before we embark on an adventure or trail, we brief you on the flora, fauna and any other considerations that form the uniqueness of the environment so that you understand and appreciate the minimal impact approach.

Accommodation & Adventure Partners

  • Where possible we partner with fellow Eco Certified businesses who follow the same eco philosophies
  • Our destinations are all pre-arranged and when we camp we do so in designated campsites.
  • Our adventures have all the applicable National Park permits and licenses to operate.
  • Our “give back” policy also applies to the locations we stay – choosing local operators, businesses and townships where funds spent go directly to small business owners – doing our part to create sustainable communities.

SAFETY

Safety is our number one priority. Your C.R.E.W Leader is fully trained in Remote Area First Aid and your Guides hold Wilderness First Aid Qualifications.

All guides and leaders have current CPR Qualifications.

In the event of extreme weather conditions or conditions beyond our control, the adventure may vary from the itinerary. Please be aware of this and accept this as part of the adventure. Your personal safety is our highest priority.

KNOWLEDGE

Our  Mighty Murray River Fitness Adventure comes with a dedicated, local and professional hiking guide.

Our guide, along with your Women’s Fitness Adventures C.R.E.W Leader, who is there to support YOU, will ensure that you leave with not only knowledge of the local area, but also priceless memories.

These elements, along with our amazing C.R.E.W make our  multi day hikes transformational. Some kind of “magic” happens with the group.

FRIENDSHIP

From the moment you book on to the The Mighty Murray River Fitness Adventure, you will begin to make new friends. It all starts with the training.

Our adventurers tell us that they love the opportunities of meeting others before the adventure in the Closed Facebook Group or in person at training.

Many of our members have gone on to become great friends. You can read some of the friendship stories by clicking here.

PRICELESS MEMORIES
