Social Outings

Meet new people, make friends, discover new places and try new things.
Experience local venues and events on our social outings.

How it works

Our social outings are pre-planned trips for seniors that promote social inclusion and connection by getting you out and about to new places & to experience new adventures.

Social outings can be either a half-day or full-day, and on occasion we have overnight trips somewhere further afield. We host a variety of activities that are different each month. There are walking groups, concerts, tours to other towns or simply going out for a beautiful lunch. If you have any ideas for where you'd like to go, please let us know!

Each month a new calendar of events is created for various locations. You can download the calendar or view all of the outings for your location by clicking on one of the buttons below.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens on a social outing?

Our experienced driver picks you up from your door and will assist you onto one of our vehicles. Once all clients have been picked up, you'll be off on your way to your social outing destination! Social outings include visits to museums, farms, scenic drives, exploring a new town, lunches, nursery visits, shopping, walking groups and visits to the theatre, to name a few! We are open to ideas from our clients as well so let us know what you would like to do.

What is the difference between a half & full day?

All our outings promise a good time, but you can choose a half or full day to suit your needs. Half day outings are within our local region that are usually a morning or an afternoon. Full Day outings venture further afield, with a rest stop on the way to our final lunch destination. Full day outings are a slower paced day and are ideal for our foodie clients.

How much do social outings cost and what does the cost cover?

Transport cost is dependent on each outing. Other costs such as lunch or event tickets are at your own expense. Our friendly team are happy to let you know transport costs when you call to enquire or book. Payment is required at the time of booking.

I've found a social outing I'd like to attend - what do I do?
