Father Daughter Experiences (Older Daughters) - Feedback from the Dads in 2022
This guided Father Daughter experience has meant the world to me.
It has enabled me to speak my daughter's language, at least for a bit, and give her my attention, then seeing the affection follow. Every detail of the experience was strategic and arranged for our relational growth. I could never have pulled it off myself.
Looking forward, we will still have challenges to face, but we now have a rich shared experience and a rich vocabulary to discuss life and maturity etc.
Rob (Age 51 years) from Sydney, NSW.
This guided Father and Daughter Adventure
experience has been profound, incredible, and life changing.
We had a great relationship before, but now we leave with a greater connection and knowledge of each other than I imagined possible, but always hoped for.
You offered me wisdom, guidance, and support throughout this experience, which Dads simply don’t have access to normally.
The moment I showed my daughter the webpage, she was all in. She was excited to spend 5 days with just me, and I knew we were both in for a transformative time.
My favorite highlight from the experience was the conversation over Lunch on the day of the hike. I shared about my life, and that profoundly impacted my daughter for the better. We are now closer than ever.
Some benefits I received from my involvement in this experience, are confidence, connection, understanding, 5 days of affection, hope, joy, and peace.
Looking forward, I will have a closer journey with my daughter than ever before.
In my opinion, this experience is ideally suited to anyone who believes that their child deserves a beautiful future, and recognizes that nobody can achieve that on their own.
Scott (Age 50 years) from Brisbane, QLD.
This guided Father and Daughter Adventure
experience has grown our father-daughter relationship to the next level.
My daughter is now second only to my wife as my closest friend.
It provided us with sufficient intentional time to talk openly about big things in our lives, and become incredibly close.
Everything was so very special to both of us.
I felt like it was the right amount of adventure and downtime to relax.
My favorite highlight from the experience was the snorkelling. It was almost spiritual. My daughter trusted me to overcome her fear, and we spent hours in the water, communicating without words.
The major benefits I received from my involvement in this experience, is a very close relationship with my daughter, which will allow me to speak into her life, and her into mine.
Looking forward, I will treasure every moment with her.
In my opinion, this experience is ideally suited to any father of a daughter.
I had a great relationship with my daughter, but I honestly feel now that it is next level.
Zane (Age 48 years) from Cairns, QLD.
This guided Father Daughter experience has meant a lot to me, because it has helped my daughter and I
connect in a deeper way, and helped us to improve our communication, and opened
a door for more and better communication with each other in the future.
My favorite highlights from the experience were the white water rafting, the group discussions with just the fathers, and then the group discussions with the fathers and daughters together.
The major benefits I received from my involvement in this experience, are the 4 Marks of a REAL Man for me, and understanding more about what it means to be a woman, so that I can help my daughter in that journey of hers.

Father Daughter Experiences (Older Daughters) - Feedback from the Daughters in 2022
to this guided Father Daughter experience, we didn’t have much time together, especially one-on-one.
Struggles we would face would build barriers to deepening our relationship. Sometimes I would feel very alone.
I agreed to join Dad here, because I wanted to fix and strengthen our relationship, go on a holiday together, and make lasting memories.
This experience has been very good, and has enabled us to have one-on-one time together, more opportunities to have deep conversations, and have an adventure together.
This experience caused us to do things we normally wouldn’t do, and focus on strengthening our relationship.
I knew that you were helping us from the very first night, when we had a very important conversation. It would have been difficult to have had that conversation somewhere else, and this experience provided that needed opportunity.
There are so many highlights of this experience for me. e.g. white water rafting and seeing the Dunk Island butterflies, group conversations with all of the daughters, having deep conversations with my Dad over Lunch on the day of the hike, and the rite of passage ceremony.
I will depart this experience having spent one-on-one time with my Dad, having received words of affirmation from him, and sharing memorable experiences with him.
And looking forward, I will be more intentional in steering myself toward womanhood rather than girlhood.
At first I thought this experience was a bit expensive, but it’s worth it, and making a big gesture like bringing me along to this shows me that Dad loves me, because he’s willing to use the money he works so hard to earn, for me.
Annelise (Age 17 years) from Deniliquin, NSW.
guided Father and Daughter Adventure experience has
meant a lot to me.
It was magical and helpful and amazing.
Not only did it strengthen my relationship with my Dad, it also gave my Dad a much needed break.
The time I realized that you were helping us in our journey, was my Dad crying more times in the last week than I have seen in my 16 years of life so far.
Also, when we were white water rafting, my Dad and I were so in tune with one another, without the need to communicate.
My favourite highlights from the experience were white water rafting, and the Rite of Passage Ceremony.
One specific benefit from this experience was the opportunity to share my thoughts about what has been troubling me, without getting interrupted.
I have no suggested changes or improvements, as everything was perfect!
And I think everyone should experience this journey. It will change so many lives and will inspire others to join when they witness that positive change.
Lauren (Age 16 years) from Melbourne, VIC.
to this guided Father and Daughter Adventure experience, we argued a lot, and the few conversations we did have were
short and blunt. I could have never had a comfortable conversation with him.
I agreed to join Dad on this experience, because I wanted to be close to Dad again.
I wanted to talk to him face to face, and not have our only interactions through watching mafia movies.
This experience meant everything to me.
The time I realized that you were helping us in our journey, was when our conversations began getting longer and more comfortable.
My favourite highlight from the experience was the surprise father and daughter moment after the Rite of Passage Ceremony.
One specific benefit from this experience was seeing Dad as a person, not just as my Dad.
Looking forward, I believe that Dad and I will have better communication, better understanding of one another, and more compromising between us.
I have actually already recommended it to 3 girlfriends of mine.
Julia (Age 16 years) from the Sunshine Coast, QLD.
to this guided Father Daughter experience, I was disobeying rules at home, especially regarding technology
use. I was frustrated, because I didn’t understand my Dad’s opinion and point
I agreed to join Dad on this experience, because I did the weekend trip with my Dad when I was younger. I remembered how great that experience was and how it brought us closer together, so I thought that it would be great to take the next step.
This Adventure experience has meant a great deal to me.
Throughout the time here, I have grown. I have learnt more about myself, learnt more about my Dad, and we were able to introduce a new and deeper chapter in our relationship together.
I now feel a lot more comfortable talking to my Dad about anything, and love and understand him more.
This experience introduced the opportunity for conversations, deep conversations that meant something. It was so beneficial.
I realized on the day of the hike, that this experience was helping, as I felt so comfortable and so free to have great conversations with my Dad.
My favourite highlights from the experience would be (there are so many!) the rite of passage ceremony, the hike / the conversations during the hike, and the white water rafting. Very special memories.
Looking forward, I believe that I will have conversations with my Dad, and spend more valuable time together. Most definitely an improvement.
