"Let's catch up and see interesting things together in Melbourne like the Zoo or Aquarium, perhaps a coffee in an interesting cafe in a lane way in Melbourne's CBD, a movie perhaps, or just a fun train ride somewhere interesting and explore our city. It's great to get out and about and meet new people and make new friends rather than sitting at home, especially when you don't work and would like that human contact.

It's so important to socialise, have fun and laughter in life. You don't need to be in a wheelchair, but as I have been paraplegic for 4.5 years now, I see and meet more and more wonderful people who are alone during the day going on adventures alone who may like some company and the opportunity to make new friends".

Open to all ages, carers and friends as well.

"Where your pleasure is, there is your treasure;

Where your treasure is, there is your heart;

Where your heart is, there is your happiness."

- Augustine
