  1. Very excited to see the new Trailrider launched yesterday at Torquay! The more people we can get using it the better chance we have of getting even more of them along the gorgeous Great Ocean Road coastline. Thanks to David and Ros for taking the time to come down for the launch!

    Cheers,

  2. And thank you Di for putting us up so splendidly at http://www.countrywidecottages.com.au/ - Igloo is the best ever wheelchair friendly accommodation.

    Such a shame that the fire risk yesterday was such that you couldn't be there as you would have been very proud of what you have brought about.

  4. There's also a trailrider wheelchair at the Jindabyne Kosciuszko National Park visitor's information centre and lots of great walks that can be done there.
