2020 TrailRider Program – Dandenong Ranges
Date: 
Wednesday, February 19, 2020 to Friday, June 5, 2020

TrailRider all-terrain wheelchairs are available in the Dandenong Ranges enabling visitors with mobility limitations to explore the great outdoors.

The TrailRider allows visitors to access more rugged trails not otherwise accessible with conventional wheelchairs. There are various routes available, so with the help of chair operators you can experience Victoria’s parks like never before.  

To celebrate these opportunities, Parks Victoria are providing the below activities with TrailRider Volunteers to visit various locations around the Dandenong Ranges.  Trails range from 30 minutes to 1 hour.  

Each activity will have two TrailRiders available with TrailRider Volunteers to assist visitors. Please email volunteer@parks.vic.gov.au or phone (03) 84273541 to confirm your attendance or for further information.
