TOUR OVERVIEW

Our 3 hour hikes are perfect for the busy person who wants to enjoy a morning walk with friends, improve their fitness, or to just come along and try some morning hiking. You’ll feel invigorated, motivated and more connected with a community of people just like you who want to do more for themselves. Our personal trainers are on hand to offer advice and support to help you reach your goals!
These hikes work with your current fitness level, no matter where you are. We’ll also help out with specific hike fitness, injury prevention, and most importantly building friendships and having fun.
Choose to come once or twice, or attend regularly as part of your connection to the outdoors and other like minded people. These walks are wider gravel or dirt trails so you can chat and breathe at the same time.

Today’s hike takes in a great view from the highest point in the park. It’s a great morning for a really leg stretching walk as the tracks are nice and wide and vary in steepness throughout the morning. Mostly gravel surface allows you to test new shoes, wear your runners and get those hip flexors working.

Park at the very end of the road. This is also a MTB car park so may be busy.

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.

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

Hiking Footwear Buying Guide

One of the common questions we get asked is "what pair of hiking shoes should I wear to come to join you?". The first thing we say is "always wear something that is comfortable". So if it is your first day hiking and it's a grade two or three hike you are better off wearing your runners than you are buying a pair of hiking shoes or boots specifically for that event.

Hiking Boots or Shoes?

Close your eyes and think of a traditional image of a hiker, are you seeing someone with a pair of Scarpa boots, a big pack, and all the gear?

Tripping in the snow

Not all that long ago, if you had suggested I go camping in the snow I would have laughed at you. Then the snow started falling early in our snow season, the bookings started rolling in and it looked like TSA would need more than two guides on their Mt Stirling snow hikes

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!
