Holiday Explorers Inc
Holiday Explorers supports people with intellectual disability to have ‘MORE THAN A HOLIDAY’, through rewarding, fun, social and adventure-based activities.
With over 170 holidays each year, Holiday Explorers clients or ‘Tourists’, aged from 16 to 85 years young are supported in small groups by highly trained volunteers.
500 Tourists benefit from this unique service that encourages community participation, develops independence in a supported environment, and provides the opportunity to build group cooperation skills. The Tourist’s carers like Holiday Explorers because they have a break from their 24/7 caring role while their family member with a disability is away having fun on a holiday.
No two holidays are alike. Based on the Tourist’s personal goals and special interests, Holiday Explorers engages local tourism and activity operators from all over South Australia and also offer a range of interstate and overseas holidays.
A team of 8 staff and 55 volunteers provide over 33,000 hours of valuable service each year to enrich the lives of people with intellectual disability and their carers’.
