Description

The Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure

A hiking adventure in the west – the Carnarvon Ranges and Expedition National Park

5 days, 4 nights

 

Come with us as we take a very personalised hike in the Carnarvon Ranges and Sandstone Ranges.

This moderately graded adventure sees us hike “unformed trails” as we discover spectacular sandstone scenery and diverse vegetation areas. We also hike the spectacular Carnarvon Ranges – a magnificent formation in Western Queensland. Our Hiking Adventure is a mixture of motel accommodation and SUPER GLAMPING accommodation. It’s also a day pack only hike.

We do hope you will join Women’s Fitness Adventures on a journey into the heart of Queensland with other like minded women.

Note there is ensuite accommodation available, for an additional supplement, and we will contact you after your booking to determine which option you wish to take.

Please ensure that you read the Booking Terms & Conditions associated with this adventure before you make your booking. You can also learn more about the Adventure Type & Grading and Fitness level required in the information shared below.

From the moment you book on to the Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure, you will begin to make new friends. It all starts with the first step.

Our adventurers tell us that they love the opportunities of meeting others before the adventure in the closed Facebook Group Page or at in person training, or their own “member connects”.

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

 

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

Here is what our members had to say…

“Hiking off the trail was the highlight for me. Hiking in areas with NO other people. Just us, clear skies and beautiful countryside” Linda

Learning so much about the area, seeing spectacular scenery and learning so much about local history, environment and community. So well organised” Dianne

“Nice balance of spectacular tourist sites and the unique experience of hiking off grid and having magnificent views to ourselves.” Debby

This is a MODERATE multi day adventure.

Some of the trails are well marked and traversed and others are “off track” through bush scrub.

Off track means:

  • that there is no trail
  • it will be uneven and rocky underfoot, due to the nature of it being outdoors and natural.

There are some ascents where you will get out of breath however you will take these at the pace of the group

With descents you will need to concentrate due to the unevenness of the trail.

With the right commitment to hike training, this is suitable for those with a moderate level of fitness.

A MODERATE level of fitness FOR THIS ADVENTURE means:

  • Whether we are hiking or not, 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, stairs and uneven paths and some off track sections.
  • A moderate 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 uneven terrain.
  • The ability to carry a pack of up to 7kg with all of your personal requirements, including water, over the trails.

Moderate Fitness Grading

Our Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure is graded Moderate.

The hiking is moderate with daily hikes ranging from 9-20km

The terrain is undulating and we are regularly ‘off track’.

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

As soon as you book into the Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure you can get started with training.

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

Here’s what you get:

  • A 12 week 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 Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure Facebook Group.

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.  

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

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, warm top, swimmers (optional), lunch, camera, hat and any items of a personal nature, including personal first aid/medications.

A comprehensive gear list will be supplied to you within a few weeks of your booking being confirmed and long before the adventure so that you can feel confident that you have the right gear.

By sticking to the list, you will be well prepared for the Outback Queensland Fitness Adventure.

Moderate Fitness Table

As much as we would like to, we have no control over the weather.

Daytime temperatures will vary from low teens to mid twenties. Night time temperatures may get cold under the clear Winter night skies.

That’s why it’s important to come along with an open mind ready for an awesome experience whatever the weather.

It is very important you bring the right gear for the conditions.

As it is an inland region in Queensland, temperatures can warm up and storms can pop up.  In fact, the Carnarvon Gorge creates its own weather system.

With our comprehensive gear list and briefing sessions, you will be more than prepared.

In the event of extreme weather conditions, 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.

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

  • For this adventure, once in country, we use either foot or public transport as our mode of movement.
  • 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 Eco Certified businesses who follow the same eco philosophies
  • Our adventures have all the applicable National Park permits and licenses to operate (or International equivalents)
  • 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.
