Shoalhaven Solo Sisters, Not Just For The Ladies


Although the initial purpose of the Shoalhaven Solo Sisters initiative was to match up single female travelers for groups, these tours and programmes  – indeed the entire initiative, is not just for our single ladies, but for single travellers.  

With the successful launch of the Shoalhaven Solo Sisters programmes and the overwhelming response from the ladies of the Shoalhaven we are extending our Solo Service – to the Gentlemen that have the same concerns.

So if you are a Solo Gentleman (or know a solo Gentleman), either because you are a long term bachelor, recently widowed, or have a partner or spouse who just doesn’t like travel, then the Shoalhaven Solo Sisters is the thing for you!

We have several group departures in the works that the fellas are more than welcome to join, and can as always try and match people up for the individual trip

So if you or someone you know, wishes to join our initiative – and this is a shout out to the guys –  let us know!


Europe, the USA & Beyond …


Get Away with Trafalgar & Insight

These days there are a number of tour operators that are beginning to realise that there is a need to match up single travellers – because nobody wants to pay a huge chunk of cash to do what everyone else is doing simply because they are on their own.

Two of those tour operators are Trafalgar Tours and Insight Vacations. These are two names that many of you would recognise, running set departure tours throughout Europe, the USA and most recently Asia and South America. Both companies have a “match up” policy where they attempt to match you up with another single traveller on their tours, it does help you save and if they can’t find a match they will usually allow you to travel anyway without paying a single supplement!

So if you have considered a trip around Europe to see the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Eiffel Tower or more than there are options. If you wanted to travel the Rocky Mountains, see the Grand Canyon or explore the wonders of Canada and the USA then we may have something for you! All you need to do is let us know you would like some information and we can get something to you.

Wine & Cheese Weekend

Just a last reminder that if you were thinking of joining us at the Nowra RSL on the 12th July for some Cheese and Wine Tasting then please RSVP by the 1st July.

Murray River Getaway & Hunter Valley Wine Weekend

We have about half the numbers we need for the Murray Valley Getaway – so if you were wanting to experience a few days aboard a traditional Paddlesteamer than now is the time to  reserve your spot. We also need quite a few more travellers to confirm our Hunter Valley Weekend – so we encourage those who want to come to let us know!
