Social Outings calendar


It’s almost time to dust the heaters off and pull the Ugg boots out of the cupboard!  But it is NOT the time to stay indoors and hibernate.  Connect has a huge array of outings on the winter calendar to keep you busy and warm.

Vivid is back and you have the opportunity to view this beautiful Sydney light display while enjoying a two course meal onboard a harbour cruise.  We are also heading back to the Hawkesbury cruising on the famous Riverboat Postman taking in the magnificent scenery of the lower Hawkesbury River.

By popular demand we pay a visit to Broken Bay Pearl Farm and learn about these stunning jewels of the sea.

As an extra incentive to get out from under your quilt, and out about on the weekends, all outings on the winter calendar that fall on a weekend will be absolutely free of charge! *  Any extra costs such as entry fees to a venue, which are marked on the calendar, will still need to be paid by you, but Connect has your bus fare covered, door to door!

As always, we have our popular “Fit and Fabulous” walking group, once a month for only $5! Take a lovely scenic walk followed by morning tea. Walking tracks selected will be relatively flat and of an easy level. You can walk as little or as far as you wish within the time provided. Grab a friend, some comfy shoes and a water bottle and join in the group.

As on all of our calendars, we will continue to enjoy many of Sydney’s beautiful parks, gardens and beaches. We will have shopping trips, lunches and scenic drives.

We will also be continuing our short day outings. For only $10* you can join these outings on Wednesdays and Thursdays. These trips will not usually include a stop for lunch, instead we will take you to the destination and back with fewer stops that 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. This will show you whether to expect a lot of stairs, how much walking, and whether or not a Bus Assistant will be accompanying the group. We also provide you with information regarding the lunch venues we have booked to let you know how much you may expect to pay on a particular outing. We hope this help you in your selection of the outings that best suit you. Book in early to avoid missing out!

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

*Please note that special price offers do not apply to HCP or NDIS clients, who will continue to be charged on a full cost recovery basis.
