If, like me, you have very few chances to go bushwalking - the Trailrider wheelchair might be an answer for you.
You can be a Trail Blazer too!
It is time that our beautiful ACT National Parks are opened up for more use for disability tourism.
On Easter Saturday, 19th April, the National Parks Association and staff at Namadgi National Park, are conducting free nature wheelchair-walks on the 1-km Namadgi Woodlands Trail.
The Trailrider buggy (see photo) and a manual 3-wheeler all terrain wheelchair will be available. The Trail is packed gravel with moderate inclines so assistance is needed. Motorised wheelchairs are not suitable.
Volunteer bushwalkers with local knowledge will introduce you to the trees, grasses and wildlife. You do need to be able to transfer independently (or with assistance from friends/family). Bring your family and friends to help with the pushing and for a picnic afterwards.
It is essential to book in. Contact Namadgi Visitor's Centre on 6207 2900 or Graham Scully on 62303352
An opportunity for a great outdoor experience!
