Map of Tassie team
Map of Tassie is a free 100% volunteer-run, social and outdoor adventure group dedicated to women in Tasmania. This group would be nothing without our team of founding members and group leaders who set it up on the 11th of September, 2020, when Camille Nelson, Hildegunn Hodne, Jasmin Martin and Trudy Rundle started going on hikes together.
The group was setup on Facebook as an easy to way to communicate and keep information about the hikes in one central location. We never thought it would grow to over 100+ members.
Anna Lewis, who runs her own Meet Up group for women in Launceston, came on board and started sharing her events with MOT. She has now become a valued admin and member.
Hildegunn Hodne and Jasmin Martin have previous experience as volunteers for the local branch of the national LGBTIQ+ body in Norway, with Hildegunn as branch leader, organising events such as Winter Pride in Lillehammer, and Jasmin helping to run the hiking group, organising outdoor social events.
Map of Tassie mission
The idea behind Map of Tassie is to connect women under the rainbow with the great outdoors and nature. If you don’t have so much knowledge or experience, then this group is perfect for you. Benefit from the knowledge and adventures of others. That’s what we’re here for :) The goal is to help you build a strong relationship with nature and feel good when you are out in the wilds. We hope this feeling influences you positively on a personal level, as our group is dedicated to helping women feel good about themselves in a relaxed, inclusive, social atmosphere. It can be scary at first, taking that first step, but you’re not alone, and we’re a crazy happy bunch with lots of understanding, patience and care. So we look forward to seeing you soon :)
Map of Tassie vision
Map of Tassie has plenty of vision ranging from finding a club house, to setting up a women’s only community living out in the Tasmanian bush. We’re also keen to network and partner up with other women-only LGBTIQ+ focused organisations on the mainland or overseas with view to experiencing their unique lifestyle, culture and natural environment.
We’d like Map of Tassie to become a platform for women to work together and earn a living by offering outdoor adventures, a women’s centre, holiday accommodation, and more.
