A Message From Our Directors

Hey Wild Women,

We wish we could say we’ve been feeling all the positives of beginning a new decade and a new year. But the beginning of 2020 has been quite challenging.

Celebrating when such a huge environmental crisis is unfolding in Australia just hasn’t felt right. The pain of knowing how many homes, animals and forests have been destroyed has been intense. Seeing so many people in our communities struggling with the force of these fires has been deeply stressful and exhausting.

Now it's time for us to pause and recognise the grief and pain which has marked the beginning of 2020.

Scientists believe we have come to a crossroads that will define the path for future generations. We know the time has come for a dramatic cultural transformation.

We know our wild women are awake, because we love nature. We walk the earth, plunge in her pools and scale her peaks. This means some of us feel her pain more deeply. But as initial shock subsides, we must turn our pain into action. Action to love mother nature more. To nurture her more than ever before.

Now is our time to be the change angels for our home planet. Our contribution is critical. This power is within each and every one of us and nature needs us like never before.

We must all stand together and remember our sacred duty as caretakers of this beautiful earth.

Our community has already rallied together to donate money and organise events, donation drives, sewing bees and tree planting. We will be hosting a number of fundraising walks to support our chosen charities including WIRES Emergency Rescue, The Australian Red Cross, RFS, and the Bush Heritage Fund. Wild Women On Top have donated $10,000 to WIRES and The Red Cross to support the people and animals most impacted by this crisis. 

Over coming months, we will be sharing ways of helping mother nature to recover and re-grow. We hope you will join us on this journey of hope, resilience and recovery as we work together for the good of our home planet and all our loved ones.

Wild Wishes,

Di and Tania x

When the doors to my gym closed in late March due to COVID-19, I felt like the rug had been pulled out from under me. In the first few weeks of lockdown, I’ll be honest, I was in a pretty dark place. I felt joyless, flat, uninspired, confused, scared and isolated. I got teary and emotional over insignificant things. They’re feelings I know many of us went through, at various times, at various intensities. But lockdown also taught me a valuable lesson about exercise…
Don’t be fooled by the gym selfies and abs on Instagram. The healthiest people around aren’t spending all day in the gym, eating nothing but bland chicken and broccoli, and drinking protein shakes. Here are 8 things healthy people do daily (or at least… most days!)
We all need to do something thrilling and daring every now and again. Not just because it unleashes our inner child and fills us with a lust for life, but because awe and exhilaration is actually good for our health! On the eve of World Nude Hiking Day, we thought we'd share some wild and wonderful ways you can experience natural exhilaration and get your vitality back.
When you're hiking overnight, you don't need to miss out on a delicious, decadent dessert. Di has perfected this apricot crumble recipe which you can make on the trail on a multi-day hike. It's easy, it's quick, it has limited ingredients, it's delicious, and it's the ultimate post-dinner treat for an overnight adventure. Enjoy!
At Wild Women On Top, we're all about delicious, nutritious gourmet food. Even on overnight hikes, we go the extra mile for our tastebuds. You don't need to resort to commercial, dehydrated meal packets. From curries to pasta dishes, you can cook fresh, gourmet meals on the trail.  The recipes in this blog have been fine-tuned over several years of overnight hiking and involve a little preparation at home. They're tried and tested, and they're super secret (so don't go sharing them around!) Enjoy!
