The Women of Courage program is intended for women who have experienced trauma, loss or domestic violence and have progressed through their own personal healing and are ready to challenge themselves in a new setting. With a highly trained and experienced team of compassionate female instructors the course will focus predominantly on increasing self-esteem and self-reliance, building supportive relationships with other women and encouraging a sense of “trying something new”. This could be anything from hiking for the first time, sleeping in the outdoors or trying abseiling. Participants are facilitated through a challenging and inspirational outdoor journey, including activities like rock climbing and rafting, wilderness hiking expeditions and personal development sessions. These activities encompass our philosophy of “challenge by choice”.

Ready to reach your potential? Know someone who could benefit from the Women of Courage experience? Enquire online and a friendly staff member will be in touch with more information on the course, or for more detail about specific programs contact us via: mailbox@outwardbound.org.au or contact Rachel Eland – Foundation Manager on 0447 862 812.

How do I Apply?

Download this form: Women of Courage Application and Questionnaire May 2020.

An application form and questionnaire will need to be completed by each participant. This questionnaire is designed to help you understand the challenges of the Women of Courage Program and to support you in preparing emotionally, physically and mentally. This information is confidential. After we receive this you will be contacted for a telephone interview. The purpose of the interview is to confirm this is the appropriate course and the right time to participate. There will be plenty of time to ask questions to ensure you are making a well-informed decision to attend the program. The last step is to complete an on line medical screening form.

No prior outdoor experience is necessary and most levels of abilities and fitness are catered for. We encourage you to take part in some form of regular exercise most days of the week like walking or cycling leading up to the program as this will help you gain the most out of the program.

All equipment, gear, food and local transport are provided to the participants.
