What do the wild girls do? Your chance to find out is coming to Byron Bay on Tuesday, July 18 with the screening of the Dirty Girls Adventure film tour.

Nine short films over 90 minutes will take you on a wild adventure through the lives and experiences some of the best outdoor and adventure sports women in the world.

‘There have always been lots of women doing amazing things in the outdoors but they more often wrote books,’ said Adventure Reels director, Jemima Robertson.

‘But in the last 12 months we have had a lot of women filmmakers and they tell their story differently. So this is an opportunity to showcase their work.’

The idea came from the desire to showcase strong, inspirational, adventurous women continued Jemima.

You will be taken from mountain heights to the Arctic ice and onto the Sierra Nevada before the ride ends so get along to this all ages, all inclusive event is packed full of inspiration at the Byron Theatre from 7pm.
