Holistic Adventures

Looking to escape the hectic pace of modern life and unplug from technology? Want an opportunity to practice the art of being still, being here and being present? Craving an adventure, a chance to connect with like-minded people, and that feeling of accomplishment that results when you push yourself beyond what you thought was possible? Then our Holistic Adventures are for you! Aimed primarily at adults, and varying in length from a day, a week, to a month, we offer a range of opportunities to entice beginners and well-seasoned explorers to JOIN. There are Holistic Adventures happening in locations across South East Queensland, Northern New South Wales and Beyond. We will travel using self powered means, whether it is paddling, bushwalking, cycling or sailing; while facilitating a journey beyond the physical elements, aimed to nourish your mind and soul. We would love for you to JOIN Us on an Adventure and discover a new perspective of yourself and the world around you.

Team Transformations

Team Transformations

Looking for an experience that will help give your team that edge during pre-season? Trying to find a solution for the mid-season slump in performance or commitment? Wanting to stir up the dynamics, try something different, challenge your players physically, and allow them to reach their full potential as a group?

Come JOIN Us for one of our Team Transformation sessions in which we will put your players in unfamiliar situations where they will need to work together to overcome adversity. We will facilitate the development of understanding their strengths, weaknesses and how they could best work together to achieve shared goals. With tips and techniques for how to apply these learning to your sporting pursuits, and activities designed to recognise the important links between body and mind, and how you can use these to your advantage, we look forward to Transforming your Team into the best they can be!

Past Adventures

The Great Sandy Escape!

April 2016

A ferry ride, hop, skip and a jump...

Took us from the hectic pace of modern life into the depths of island paradise. The weight of life’s troubles previously carried on our shoulders, soon exchanged for packs filled with the bare essentials for survival and plenty of tasty, wholesome food. After laughing our way through 10 kilometres of native bushland we spent a windswept night on home beach. Up early to watch the sunrise, with a little encouragement, soon everyone was hanging ten on a surfboard in their own unique way. Sandy toes and happy memories to take home for all!

The Oarsome Weekend

February 2016

It all began at...

Lake Cootharaba, renowned for its tendency to provide a head wind, regardless of your direction of travel, lived up to its reputation. The relentless gale blew, as we canoed along her shores, and made every morsel consumed from then on, feel well-earned. Overcoming this obstacle first up, meant sailing through the Noosa Everglades felt like a dream. Our canoes rafted up, drifting purely with the force of the breeze on our Twister Mat we were using as a sail. The day was still young, as we stretched our legs out on the walk to watch the sunset over the Cooloola Sand patch. Many gasps were heard as we admired the bright stars on the night paddle back to camp. The last day finished with a calmer pace, a shorter paddle to Harry’s Hut followed by some Yoga, an opportunity for reflection, and more delicious food. Revived and rejuvenated by good company, and beautiful scenery, we headed home.

Journey Facilitators



Our jet-setting, go-getting team member, we are lucky to have Jemma JOIN Us when she’s not off leading young people on month long trips through Fiji, New Zealand, Thailand or the Australian Outback. Bringing with her ten years of experience establishing, programming and delivering Outdoor Recreation Programs, Community Engagement Events and Adventurous Journeys, as well as a degree in Leisure Management; Jemma is a vibrant, enthusiastic leader, who will ensure your trip takes on a smooth, rather than a crunchy, peanut butter-style. If she’s not overcoming her fear of heights by skydiving over Uluru, Jemma would love to help you find a trip that is just what you are looking for.


Tegan is prime example of what JOIN is all about. Prior to meeting us, she had never been on a self powered multi-day adventure. Now, 1000s of kilometres of exploration later, it’s hard to keep her inside! With a background in the Food Industry, and having written her own Cookbook, Tegan is responsible for ensuring your bellies are filled with Delicious, Nutritious, Healthy Nourishment. In addition, her recent training in Massage and Psychosomatic Therapy, will be crucial to ensuring our Journey nurtures your Mind, Body and Soul and her expertise in Photography will guarantee you have some evidence at the end of the trip to show your friends and family what you are raving about.



Laura has been leading outdoor adventures since she could barely walk, convincing her sister and their two labradors to follow her down creeks, up trees, and even on kayaking adventures across the back lawn. Now, when she’s not Sailing the Pacific, Paddling the Amazon, Cycling around Asia or Walking across Australia; she’s generally somewhere else in the Wilderness, working as an Outdoor Education Teacher, trying to unleash the wild-children of the next generation. A Wilderness First Responder, Surf Lifesaver and State Emergency Service Volunteer, if anything unexpected is to happen on our trips, Laura will smile cheekily and quickly improvise a solution, as she has probably come across something similar before.


The Ultimate Adventure Dog, since we adopted Django a year ago he has been on a rollercoaster of tail wagging trails. From walking over 500kms as part of our JOIN Bicentennial National Trail walk in 2015, to living on a sailboat for a few months, Rock hopping, Canoeing, Stand Up Paddle boarding and even sleeping in a Hammock, nothing scares Django now! (except the chickens in the backyard). But this journey hasn’t all been about us setting him free from Backyard Boredom into Adrenalin-filled Adventures, he has taught us so much too. To be Kind to Strangers, to show how Excited you are feeling inside and let it out (you should see his bum waggle), to sleep when you are tired, to trust your Intuition and to Live in the Moment!
