Diggers 4 Adventures
As we predominantly look after the younger contemporary veterans, who do not go to Bingo or Bowls – but are very active in outdoor adventures, including activities like boating, fishing, camping and 4x4ing activities – we realised that there was an opportunity to develop a programme of adventures right here in our backyard. These activities we will use as goal setting for social inclusion; thus beating the social isolation that many of these veterans may experience, which in turn will be helping their mental health and general wellbeing.
We are currently focussing our attention on quarterly short trips to Fraser Island and our inaugural recce trip to Cape York.
Our annual longer trips being our 35 day African Safari (departing late May) and our September Cape York/NT trips – eventually including borders further afield like Tasmania and the Snowy Mountains.
