Women living or working in the Southern Downs Regional Council area and other drought affected communities are invited to participate.

Workshop instruction is being provided by The Rewilding Project. This workshop is designed to enhance, educate and encourage the modern outdoorswoman to embrace bouldering in our rocky Queensland environments.
Whether you are looking for an exciting new experience, up-skilling or learning basic climbing technique – we have you covered. In this workshop we will look at rock climbing skills, foot and hand placements, day-trip planning and show you how to pack to be self-sufficient. Like all empowering workshop sessions we will be challenging ourselves, but this workshop is suitable for all fitness levels.
