Yoga:

 

All of our yoga classes will be at a beginner level and no experience is required. Yoga is an amazing practise for your body, mind and soul; no level of flexibility or fitness is required, you participate to your own capabilities! 

Fitness: 

 

This is an active trip involving a hike every day plus general walking around the campsites and destinations. However, we always take hikes at a reasonable pace and have plenty of breaks to catch our breath, we are here to enjoy nature and this experience - not to push ourselves to our physical limits! To make the most out of this trip a reasonable level of fitness is required to enjoy all the hikes, but you may choose to sit out on a particular activity at any time if you feel you want to rest at the camp or a nearby safe spot such as a cafe or information center.

Meeting point:

 

This adventure begins in Alice Springs at 7:30am on the first day of the trip, so you should book your flights in to Alice Springs airport the day before. For accomodation we recommend either Alice's Secret Hostel for a cheaper option, or The Mercure for a nicer hotel. We will pick you up from any accomodation of your choice, just send us an email before the trip to let us know where your staying.

Finish point:

 

We will finish our journey at Uluru on the last day around midday. You can book any flight leaving Uluru (Connellan) Airport after 12pm, or alternatively stay another night in the Ayres Rock Resort and fly out the following day. Be aware that rooms at the Ayres Rock Resort can be pricey so book this as far in advance as possible if you wish to stay longer. 

You can also join us for the roadtrip back to Alice Springs if you prefer. We will be leaving that afternoon and arriving around 6pm.

  • I am a solo traveller, can I come by myself?"
    Yes! Wild Women Journeys was created to bring adventurous women from all over the world together. We highly encourage women to step out of their comfort zone and book a trip even if you dont have someone to come with.
  • Am I too old to come on this trip?
    Age is just a number, If you are young at heart and free spirited you are the perfect woman for our adventures! In saying this, the average age of our groups is 20-45 years old.
  • What will the food be like? I have dietary requirements.
    Wild Women Journeys prides ourself on our high quality, tastey food. We can cater to any dietary requirement including vego, vegan, GF, DF etc. There is an option to add your dietary requirement information on the booking form. Here is some examples of what meals may be: Breakfasts: Cereal, museli, yoghurt, fruit, hot foods like eggs/mushys/bacon (some days when we have time). Lunch: Wraps, sandwiches, cous cous salads, quinoa salad, burgers. Dinner: BBQ, curry, stir frys, burritoes, pasta. *Please note, food shopping for the whole trip is done the day before the trip, so if you have not listed a dietary requirment on your booking form we may not have enough of that type of food for you. Make sure you list your accurate dietary requirement, dont be worry about being "fussy"! We would rather know what you are and arent going to eat so we can provide the right food.
  • What is a swag?
    Great question! Swags are a simple "bed roll" which is made of canvas with a foam mattress inside. On many of our adventures we choose to sleep in swags. This is because they are super comfy, weather resistant, and quick and easy to set up. In the outback, we generally dont use tents as there is no bugs, so we sleep outside just on the swags (yep, that means your sleeping outside!) Up north however in Kakadu we put our swags in tents so that we can have an escape from the mozzies. We also provide sleeping bags which you will sleep in side of in the swag.
  • Will there be phone reception or wifi?
    Every trip is different depending on where we are going, however, most of our trips are remote so reception is generally very limited. If you are concered and need to know exactly where/when you will have access to internet, contact us and we will be able to tell you.
