Nestled away in the wilderness of the Gold Coast Hinterland, escape with Arcadia Women Adventures to the beautiful Wild Mountains Environment Centre for three unbeatable days – from Friday October 22 to Sunday October 24.

Arcadia’s mission is to encourage women to be inspired and empowered by adventure and connecting to the great outdoors. Their focus is to introduce you to something different, to new landscapes, new adventures, to connect with like-minded community and to have fun, with a positive vibe.

The adventure weekend will include accommodation, guided hike, two yoga practices, Wim Hof and sound healing session and healthy hearty vegetarian meals (plus an optional Thai Massage for an extra fee).

Find your sense of adventure while meeting like minded women in a natural, pristine outdoor setting. Here’s what’s in store…


The ‘Wild Mountains’ facilities are set in beautiful native bush land. They are leading an example of a harmonious lifestyle with the earth. With various sleeping arrangements, hot showers and composting toilets available. See the website via theb for pricing and details.
