Could this be for you?

Run by women for women, REGENERATE provides free therapeutic outdoor experiences for small groups of women, or women with children who are survivors of Family Violence.

The program also weaves in individual support to enhance your experience.

Take this time in nature to meet other women, have fun and create new positive memories.

You may learn something new, get a bit grubby, laugh, share, nurture others while nurturing yourself.

This program is a partnership between the Good Samaritan Inn and Adventure Works

Therapeutic Bush Adventure. Please feel welcome to join us!


Join us for a 2 hour session on Tuesday's (starting @ 10 am and finishing @ 12-12.30 pm) offering an opportunity to build social connections with other women and experience comfort in nature.

This is a weekly gentle experience set in local park settings, with easy access to public transport and parking. These sessions are a precursor to an Adventure Day, and you can come to as many as you like (spaces permitting). 

Activities may involve walking and games, with time to reflect and have fun together. 

Light refreshments provided, dietary requirements considered.

REGENERATE Adventure Day

Travel with us from the hustle and bustle of life to the bush,  to a river or to an ocean setting.

These whole day sessions, often on a Wednesday, immerse us further into the benefits of Bush Adventure Therapy, and offer more time with others to get active, and absorb the healing nature offers us. Adventure Days are great on their own, and also help set you up for a camp if you wish to experience more. 

We have up to 8 young people and 8 women day trips available to participate in. Ask us about days for women and children.

Activities may include walking in nature, climbing and water activities.

Transport, food, drinks and equipment provided.

Departure is @ 10 am and return @ 5 pm.

Individual support

REGENERATE weaves individual support into the program. The aim of this support is to provide the space to address any barriers preventing you from being involved, and to help you get the most out of the program.


Join us for a camping trip in the bush, ocean or river setting. There are 4 women only camps and/or 3 family camps available to choose from with the REGENERATE team. These 2-night experiences enables more time for adventures, friendship, healthy activities, fun and laughter.

There will be space to reflect on how far you’ve come, to think about the ‘where to next’, and develop a positive future for you and your family.

Create new fun memories with other women, grow, laugh, and shine a light on all your strengths.

Transport, food, drinks and equipment provided.

Departure time Friday 10 am and return Sunday @ 3 pm

Get involved:

  1. Have your support worker complete a referral form and send it through
  2. A REGENERATE counsellor will call you to plan a safe place for an initial meeting to offer you more information about the program, and help you get ready to participate
  3. Join a weekly 2-hour REGENERATE session
  4. After your initial session, meet with a REGENERATE staff member to reflect on your experiences, and plan for future involvement with a day trip and a camp.

REGENERATE offers active small-group experiences in nature as an opportunity to help women discover or rediscover their strengths, and share adventures with other women in a safe supported environment.

The program comes with support from Bush Adventure Therapy practitioners and trained counsellors. Together, we will venture around Melbourne’s northern parklands and beyond.
