TAKE THE CHALLENGE

Do something different, create memories and connect with nature under the stars

Hike the Night! We are back for more kangaroo stand-offs, scorpion sightings, posing possums and ‘how much further?” fun in November 2022, are you in? 

 

A 28km hike starting at Dromana then making our way across the peninsula to reach Cape Schanck. You’ll experience the peninsula like you’ve never seen it before, under the starry night sky with your head torch lighting the path ahead. We are so proud of how this event has grown over the years, providing people the opportunity to create unforgettable experiences, hiking through the night with their fellow team mates to reach the end for a sunrise breakfast… and coffee!! Do something different and take the challenge! 

Stay in the loop for all event info

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?

Whilst it’s a relatively flat walk, you will be  walking for several hours, so some pre-training  will be required, but do not fear, we can help you  with that. And remember, it’s not a race, the goal is simply to stay safe, enjoy the experience and  complete the course. Our guides will be dotted across the trail and can provide motivation, high fives and most importantly, snacks! But your team bonding and camaraderie will be the real  motivators to completing the course. So choose your team mates wisely!

WHAT TO EXPECT

We all meet at Cape Shanck car park, where the guides  will welcome you and give a safety briefing and map. The  bus then takes everyone to the starting point at Dromana  and your team will walk back across the peninsula to Cape  Schanck. On the track, you will experience beautiful eucalyptus forests, quaint country lane-ways and the  stunning basalt cliffs of Bushrangers Bay. The soundtrack  of your walk will be nature at its best… nocturnal animals  going about their night, waves crashing and the crunch of  your boots. Your walk will end with a well deserved  sunrise breakfast celebration with your fellow hikers.

“Navigation isn’t my strong point” No problem!

This is a semi-guided walk, so there will be TSA  guides along the route and checkpoints to make  sure you’re heading in the right direction. The track is well marked and easy to follow, we also give you a map so you can track your progress. We can provide you with a gpx file for the route,  and help set up navigation on your phone. We also send you a pack-list detailing what you need to bring and what we will provide on the  night.

FAQS

This is one of our most common questions, and our recommendation is that for most of our day walks you should wear your most comfortable footwear. Don’t wear your old hiking boots from 20 years ago, and don’t wear thongs or sandals. Bottom line is your runners are probably the best choice unless you have some comfortable hiking shoes or trail runners. In some circumstances you may want footwear with better grip than runners, particularly for muddy winter walks. If you are still in doubt, bring along both pairs and get our guides recommendation on the day.

There will be a charter bus from the meeting point (and finish line) to the start location. This is included in your ticket.

All our trips include our awesome TSA guides, accommodation, all your meals, beverages, access, permits, and all extras such as gear, activites, climbs, rafting, caving or any of the other exciting activities that appears on our tours. There is never any more to pay, unless you want to buy your own things like a coffee, souvenirs etc.

As with all of our events, our trips vary in length and difficulty. We suggest you look at the grading provided and have a browse through the itinerary distances. If you can walk 20km day after day then you’ll be fine for the Larapinta Trek, or you may be more suited to wandering around the Bay of Fires and more leisurely beach walking. Remember that you will have weeks to months to build up your fitness before the trip – which we can help with! If still in doubt, give us a call

We always want to keep you safe and have developed a Covid safety plan for the trail. Check it out HERE

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

WHY CHOOSE

TAKE SHAPE ADVENTURES

FRIENDSHIP

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.

BELONG

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!

ADVENTURE

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!
