Medium fitness level recommended. However there is NO age limit, everyone is welcome. Our trips are often quite mixed in terms of age, where people are from and what they do.

This retreat is for those who want more than just a holiday and more than just a retreat. This is a perfect combination of both. Connect with like-minded women, laugh together, overcome challenges together, and learn how to conquer the mind.

This trip is whatever you want it to be:

- Just a relaxing fun holiday away from your phone and everyday stress, or

- A life changing experience, that will shift something big for you and how you view things, empowering you to take that next step.

13. ACCEPTANCE OF RISK

Australia has many dangerous creatures, extreme weather conditions and often varying terrain. Camping, hiking and passing time outside may increase your personal risk of exposure to these dangers. Safety is our number one priority and all of our guides are highly trained to ensure passenger safety at all times.
