Out & About

Jump onboard and enjoy the ride

Get in touch

Our social excursions involve travelling via bus to various locations in SA to enjoy new experiences and meet new people. The program of excursions changes every three months, so there is always something different to try out. Everyone who joins the social outings must be aged 50+ and many share a common love of adventure. So jump onboard and be Better for life.

Join our trips and find a strong sense of community

These group-based excursions can reduce social isolation and loneliness to improve quality of life. As such, our outings are designed to strengthen attendees' sense of community by facilitating high-quality shared experiences in a welcoming environment where people feel safe to share their stories and be themselves.

You don't have to be one of our Health & Wellness or Home Care clients to join our Out and About trips. All you need to do is pay when you book your spot, then bring your smile along on the day, put on your seatbelt and enjoy the ride.

It is a requirement of the outing attendee to check the outing’s level of activity prior to booking and to determine if the Level of Activity is suitable to their mobility needs. Please note that outing attendees should be independently mobile to get on and off the bus, and those who require extra assistance need to bring an extra support person with them to the outing (the support person must also have a ticket to the outing). If an outing attendee needs clarification about an outing’s Level of Activity, they are encouraged to contact the Health Education & Social Coordinator.
