Connect: Inner West – outings calendar

 

We are back on the road!

Our summer calendar is full of exciting social outings across Greater Sydney.  With the easing of lockdown restrictions, our outings are once again very popular, with clients as keen as ever to get back out and about to visit friends, family and enjoy some long overdue social activities.

At the time of distribution, all activities and venues are open for trading, however if anything changes in this period, alternative options will be sought. Only selected outings include a Bus Assistant – check the calendar for details. Be sure and book your place early to avoid missing out!

Some of our hot ticket outings this summer include a sunset harbour cruise, riding the steam train at the NSW Rail Museum, picking beautiful stone fruit at Darkes Orchard, and a visit to the Sydney Equine Centre to learn all about horses and how they assist us humans with mental and physical health.

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.  For the adventurous, we even have a couple of swims on the calendar… Something for everyone!

Our popular short day outings continue to operate.  These 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 until further notice.  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.
