How fit do I need to be?
This bush walk covers easy to moderate levels of terrain, most of it is flat and paved but there are a few moderate hills, some uneven ground and stairs so we recommend having a moderate level of fitness so you can enjoy your surroundings. No one gets left behind, with two Women Embrace Adventure guides at this event we will have one at the front and one at the end to support all walkers. This trail is not handicapped accessible and not pet-friendly.
What if I don’t have anyone to go with?
No problem at all, there is always a Women Embrace Adventure host to make sure everyone is introduced to everyone before we set off. By the end of the day, we are sure you would have found some new friends.
