Wild Women On Top was founded in 2002 by Di Westaway OAM, after an extreme fortieth birthday adventure ignited her adventurous spirit. This experience led to the discovery of a magical way for women to restore their health and happiness.
As a former gymnastics coach, physical education teacher, journalist and now researcher in Lifestyle Medicine, Di started Wild Women On Top to inspire and empower women to lead adventurous lives they love through shared hiking adventures, positioning the brand as experts in hiking challenges.
From humble beginnings, Wild Women On Top has transformed millions of lives around the world through its trek training for women, and its Coastrek charity hikes around Australia. Coastrek has raised nearly $40 million dollars for charities including The Fred Hollows Foundation and Beyond Blue.
In June 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic when we were all locked down, masked up and limited to one-hour outdoor daily exercise, we embarked on a mission to explore new ways of connecting and motivating our community to keep moving.
Led by our Founder and women’s health expert, Di Westaway OAM, we developed a science-based fitness challenge that you can do anytime, anywhere. And so, Stayin’ Wild was born!
Stayin’ Wild is our new baby and we have big plans for sharing it with the world. We hope you’ll join us.
