At 50 DAYS we hope to inspire people to journey, reconnect with the natural world and Self.

Adventurous Women Speaker Series

Handpicked, inspiring women sharing their stories of adventure and travel.

Join us at Archies Couch each Autumn and Spring for dinner with passionate and daring tales from ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Whether it's swimming with Humpback whales, hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, dog sledding in Alaska, tramping the Te Araroa Trail, paddling down the Murray, walking the Camino or trekking Nepal; each woman has something unique to share with all.

All profits from the Speaker Series go towards local and global community fundraising groups. Past efforts have helped educate and build homes for Prisoner's Assistance Nepal and build clean water ways through World Challenge Community Projects in rural India.

Save the date and book your tickets through TryBooking or phone 0434 106 511 to reserve a seat. Bookings are appreciated as they help with catering. Vegetarian and gluten free options are provided.
