What fun things do you do on a trip?
The trips are all over Sydney so you explore new areas – all the more adventure 🙂
The main activity is often hiking but we do other fun things like kayaking, canoeing, navigating, liloing (floating on inflatables), a campfire, wild swimming, coasteering (going off track along the coastline), or camping. Don’t worry, you don’t need lots of gear – there are pre arranged hire options if you need them.
Here’s some past trips to give you an idea of what to expect:
From Audley, we did a group hike to a lookout then canoed to the swimming spot where we swam and relaxed on the rocks before paddling back to the boatshed to finish.
We met in Hornsby for a navigation lesson then ventured into the bush to practice and find the checkpoints. There was plenty of time for fun and to enjoy the views, the snacks and the company (although the chatting didn’t help the map reading!).
From the ferry at Watsons Bay we did an 8km walk, stopping for a swim at Camp Cove, learnt about the historic spots on the way, saw awesome views from the cliff tops and did a fun snorkel at Parsley Bay.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to be super fit?
Nope, you definitely don’t need to be crazy athlete super fit! But you do need a base level of fitness. We will run adventure groups of different abilities soon, but for now we run intermediate adventure groups. It’ll be 3-4 hours of exercise. Not at race pace, and you don’t need to be able to run, but we’ll be walking at a decent pace. It’s hard to define a ‘decent’ pace because it varies so much on the terrain, but around 5kms/hr on a flat fire trail. We’ll go off road on tracks, rocks, boulders etc and sometimes we’ll do other fun things like mountain biking, kayaking, or liloing (this will be detailed in the event description).
So, you need to be reasonably fit but you don’t need outdoor or adventure experience. To get an idea, you should to be able to walk in the city for a couple of hours quite comfortably. Most importantly though, you need to come with an open mind and be willing to give things a try – you may need to go out of your comfort zone, but it will be well worth it! Get in touch if you’re not sure.
Do note that you need register before your first trip (or if your health changes) which includes the PAR-Q (physical activity readiness questionnaire) form and some conditions will need a doctors clearance.
What is a typical Live Adventure trip?
We hope there is no ‘typical’ Live Adventure trip – that’s why they’re fitness ‘adventures’! We will visit different places, have a different mix of people and include different activities but there’s always lots of fun things to do. To give you an idea, they are around 3-4 hours on a Sunday afternoon visiting one of Sydney’s many nature playgrounds. Most of the time, we will do one main activity, commonly hiking, but we try to make it more than just hiking and add an extra adventure – be it swimming in a waterhole, coasteering (climbing around rocks) over a headland, a navigation activity, a campfire or something similar.
