We are a volunteer-led, non-profit community group getting women outdoors
We operate in Australia's capital city - Canberra
We're a not-for-profit community group, running a range of outdoor activities for women*
We want to keep the outdoors accessible, safe, affordable and available to all women of all ages, abilities, backgrounds, gender identity, experience and culture.

During that time, we've had around 5,300 local women participate in an outdoor activity with us.
We provide accessible experiences, skill-based learning and the opportunity to safely practice and learn with others.
We've gone abseiling, kayaking, done citizen science projects, introduced women to overnight hiking, been canyoning, rock climbing and bouldering, taught women to swim and mountain bike, how to tie a tarp, hiked and kayaked Hinchinbrook Island, gone snow camping and snow shoeing. And much more.
Think of us like the Scouts - only for adult women and those who identify as women.
[*We're not an official registered charity nor have official not-for profit status, however we don't run activities to make a profit or to profit, from, either]

Stay updated with everything hiking and outdoors related in Canberra!
Everything we do is provided through an amazing network of local volunteers.

We'd love it if you could pretty please shout us a cup of coffee as a way to say thanks and to help keep our group going. Thanks! x
