Why support people with intellectual disability to holiday on adventures all over Australia? Over 500 people with intellectual disability (the ‘Tourists’) use our service each year to enrich their lives. The Tourists are supported by volunteer tour guides to ensure a safe, supportive and fun experience. Meeting people, growing friendships, trying new activities, being involved in the community, learning new skills and developing confidence are all part of the holiday experience and what makes it so much ‘more than a holiday’. From local festivals, special events and places of interest to sports and tourism destinations all over Australia, we’ve been there! We’ve danced, cheered, played, spectated, jumped, sung, flung, sailed, flown, cycled, walked, bused, cooked, all while having a great time along the way. The experiences are many and so varied, but most importantly the Tourists have chosen where they would like to go and what they would like to do. Opportunity awaits for more Tourists . . . money raised will go towards finding even more new experiences and activities to choose from. Without Holiday Explorers, many Tourists wouldn’t have the opportunity to go on a holiday. Money raised will also go towards finding and training more volunteers who make all this possible. 50 volunteers support the small group holidays – but we need more volunteers! The more volunteers, the more we can offer our Tourists with intellectual disability. Thank you for your support.
