If you do not plan to meet us at the given location (eg. would rather meet in Peel Forest than Geraldine) or are having difficulty finding transportation please let us know! 

We may be able to help organise carpooling and also have a limited amount of space available to travel with our instructors, but it may mean departing early/arriving late.

Our Guarantee

  • No cancellations. We aim to run this programme in the order scheduled below. However, the weather doesn’t always play ball and we may need to swap activities around or change locations to suit the conditions. We’ll give participants the choice to attend the activity they planned on a different day or the day you planned with a new activity and refund the difference. 
  • No minimum numbers. We’ll run with whoever signs up, even if it’s just one person. Lucky you!

Look at some of our participants in action!
