Connect: Inner West – outings calendar


Connect is excited to recommence social outings from Monday,  1 November 2021!

The new spring calendar replaces the previous version.

While we have tried to keep some of the popular outings from the original calendar, we have made significant changes, including more outdoor options where possible.  Our weekend trip to Windsor has regrettably been cancelled.    We look forward to planning a new weekend away, and rescheduling all of the great outings we have missed, onto upcoming calendars.

We have rescheduled The Riverboat Postman cruise along the Hawkesbury, and have added the Connect client Christmas Lunch.  This fabulous event offers a 2 course meal and an afternoon of lively entertainment.  With the weather getting warmer, we will embark on more picnics, enjoying many of Sydney’s beautiful parks, gardens and beaches. As always there are shopping trips, lunches and scenic drives.   Something for everyone!

Our new short day outings are very popular and will continue.  The outings cost only $10* and include specialty shopping, Morning Tea Club, museums, trips to local points of interest etc.    These trips will not usually include a stop for lunch, instead will take you to your destination and back with fewer stops than a full day outing.

Be sure to look at the handy key provided on the calendar, to indicate the conditions you can expect on the outing.   For example, if you can expect a lot of stairs, how much walking, and whether or not one of our Bus Assistants will be accompanying the group.  We will also make mention of any lunches booked that may be slightly fancy, so clients know in advance if they should expect to pay more on a particular outing.  We hope this helps you in your selection of the outings that best suit you.

Vaccination and entry to venues.

At the time of writing, it is clear that entry, to hospitality and other venues, will be limited to those who are fully vaccinated, and that proof of full vaccination will be required.   Find out more about what you need, and how to access it.

It is mandatory that masks be worn on all services by both staff and clients.  We ask that all clients wash continue to wash their hands before being picked up and use the sanitiser available throughout the day.  If you are feeling unwell or showing any symptoms of cold or flu, we ask that you do not travel.

As always we love hearing your ideas.  So, if you have any suggestions for a fabulous outing, please be sure and let us know so that we can add them to our upcoming calendars!


* Please note that the cost of $10 does not apply to HCP or NDIS clients, who will continue to be charged at a full cost recovery basis.
