5 Reason You Should Always Have An Adventure To Look Forward To

“Anticipation implies a future reward, and rewards are powerful motivators,” - Smith Crawford. Planning and anticipating a trip can be almost as enjoyable as going on the trip itself, and there’s research to back it up.

What Is Adventure

Everyone has their own idea of what adventure is. For me, it's stepping into nature with a tingle of nerves and excitement of not knowing EXACTLY what I’m going to see, what’s going to happen or how I’m going to feel.

Short Hikes and Day Hikes

What is the difference between a Short Hike and a Day Hike? Which one suits my level of fitness? We discuss what you can expect from each so you can decide what suits you best!

How To Stay On Track During The Festive Season

Many people feel summer coming and think right- time to get my health goals back on track after a winter of hibernation! As we all know, it’s much easier to eat well and exercise more when the weather warms up and days are longer- plus the hit of vitamin D that has been so badly missing from our lives increases our feelings of motivation and wellbeing.....Then the lead up to Christmas happens…..

Downtime- Mental Or Physical?

Life can be hectic….  Work, kids, running a household, studying, trying to keep a social life etc.  It’s enough to make you want to go and lay on beach somewhere. But is that REALLY what we need?

Why You Need To Do An Overnight Hike

Making the jump from day hikes to an overnight hiking adventure can be a bit daunting for some, however it is one of the most unique and rewarding experiences and we are here to help you get started. Here are just a few of the benefits of overnight hiking:

Adventures- Why Together Is Better Than Alone!

We all know the benefits of getting outdoors and walking in nature, but sometimes the thought of getting out into the wilderness by yourself can be a bit daunting. Here are some reasons why joining a group is better than trying to go it alone!

Food Planning: Snack Attacks

Feeling in need of a snack but don't want to train wreck a wonderful day of food planning, and now you feel bad? Well don't- a bit of planning goes a long way!




Most of the people that come on our tours come by themselves. Our community is built on friendships that have been made on our trips, experiencing something life changing together, the shared memories and also goals to do more in the future! We encourage people not to be anxious about coming on these trips by yourself as we promise you will leave with some like minded friends and be really glad you made the decision to get out of your comfort zone and join in.


Our community is our backbone. We have had so many people start with no hiking experience, basic fitness and not knowing anyone on our trips. These same people have gone on to do some incredible multi day hiking trips with us and their friends they have met in our community. Witnessing the development of their fitness, confidence, experience, friendships and happiness is why we do what we do. Come join us and let us help you get from the couch to the top of the mountain!


Experiences, not things. The moments that take your breath away. The feeling of accomplishment and the realisation that you are capable of so much more than what you thought. The views that blow your mind and the ticking off of bucket list items. We take all the hard work out of it for you. We organise the lot so you can just turn up and get the best of your experience without all the headaches of organising/logistics. We make it easy for you to do all the thing you want to do –  you just need to turn up and be ready to jump into life!
