Pathways - Reptile Encounters

Growing Better Humans

Pathways was formed to give kids and young adults an opportunity to fit in. With a shared love of wildlife and nature participants are able to experience what it’s like to feel part of a community.

Since its inception, the Pathways Program has successfully assisted many participants, leading them on a journey of growth, improved wellbeing and the formation of life-long friendships.

Pathways is suitable for anyone over 15 that receives NDIS assistance. Not only will participants get to learn all about our native flora and fauna, they will also be a part of a nature-loving community providing ample support and encouragement.
