FAQ’S:


● Are there bathrooms at the meeting location? No, the nearest public bathrooms are at Hornsby train station (approx. 2km away).



● Are there steps or steep hills on this hike? A few steps, one steep hill, but not overly long so will take it slowly. All our meet ups ensure we support all women no matter your fitness or experience level.



● Can I bring my dog? Sorry! No pets on this hike.



● My 15 year old daughter would like to attend, can she come? We believe young women should spend more time outdoors, however we ask for these walks to be for women over 18 years only, sorry!



● I missed a spot, will there be more walks in and around Sydney? Yes! We’re working with great Volunteers and our Team to host free walks most months. Keep an eye on our website – www.womenwantadventure.com.au for updates or our Facebook Page.
