GPSO Respite enjoys the Wagga Botanic Gardens

The respite crew visited Wagga on the weekend for an action packed trip to the botanic gardens and petting zoo. We are not sure who enjoyed it more, the participants or the staff?

If you haven’t visited the gardens it is well worth the trip. There are nine distinct garden areas, a Chinese pavilion, three playgrounds, a free zoo and aviary, a tree chapel and a model railway that weaves throughout the gardens.

The group particularly enjoyed the aviary section featuring more than 90 species of animals and birds, both native and exotic, live here including the stunning peacocks that roam freely within the zoo.

Short Term Accommodation (STA), also known as respite, enables people with a disability to experience living away from home in a supportive environment.

STA is a support that can be delivered in a group or 1:1 arrangement, where Participants are assisted to partake in social activities, access the community and develop independent skills.
