Get Out And About

For our residents of the Dolphin Cove home, the beautiful scenery of Katoomba was one such place that the three housemates, Mark, Colin and Brett, wanted to visit. So Afford’s Lifestyle Assistants began plans to make it happen!

The day began with a drive from the housemates’ home up to Echo Point in Katoomba. The hour long drive revealed many changes in the landscape. Beginning in a suburban setting, the landscape changed as the group travelled through smaller towns and then to more natural scenery of the Blue Mountains. The three friends, along with Afford staff, sang along to the radio to while away the time.

Explore the World Around You

Once the group had reached their Echo Point destination, they ventured out into the windy outdoors of the lookout to enjoy the view of the Three Sisters in all it natural magnificence. Despite the windy weather, the friends enjoyed checking out the vast forested hills and the lovely surrounds of the lookout.

Then, the group headed to Katoomba Town Centre for a look around before a short stop at Leura.

After that, they all enjoyed a final stop at Emu Plains for a pub lunch at O’Donoghues Irish Pub – a welcome stop after a windy adventure!
