Exploring the island

A group of Orana clients enjoyed a six day, five nights holiday on Kangaroo Island supported by ‘Life Choices’ Orana Accommodation Services.


The group of clients had expressed an interest in a fishing trip so Orana Client Coaches assisted them  to organising the bookings and logistics of the trip including planning, budgeting, scheduling activities, managing day by day support needs, and getting everything ready for their trip.


The Orana clients’ adventure included fishing plus much more; sightseeing across the island such as Seal Bay & Remarkable Rocks; a visit to Will’s Rare Breeds Farm at Stokes Bay and a visit to Raptor Domain to see the amazing spiders, scorpions, snakes and predatory birds.


Some of the clients enjoyed the Kangaroo Island Ocean Safari while others went on an Emu Bay Fishing Charter trip.  Everyone enjoyed a big feed from the catch of the day.  The group enjoyed local food and produce including honey from Kangaroo Island bees and cheese from the Islands Pure Sheep Dairy. The gourmet tour included a visit to the Penneshaw markets for a coffee, some lunch and the chance to sample other local produce.


A cosy accommodation in Kingscote was the perfect place to share time together watching footy, playing cards and just talking around the table after the evening meal.


A trip to the Cape Willoughby Lighthouse finished the trip where some climbed all the way to the top.


The Orana clients developed team work and collaboration skills as they worked together planning their individual and group activities schedule for their trip.


Thanks to the Orana staff for supporting our clients in organising their trip. The guys had so much fun that they are already planning their next holiday escape!
