PARAQUAD SA United Water ZOO Accessible Adventure Days

Fri 1st April - Mon 4th April 2011

The Paraplegic and Quadriplegic Association of SA (PARAQUAD SA) and United Water, have great pleasure in inviting you and your organisation's clients and members to join us at the 2011 PARAQUAD SA United Water ZOO Accessible Adventure Days. You may want to arrange a group outing or simply encourage your clients and members to enjoy this unique experience at their leisure.

The continuing mission of the event - celebrating its 11th great year - is to encourage all South Australians with a disability and their families and friends to experience the beauty and excitement of the Adelaide Zoo, in a welcoming and accessible environment. To date, well over 9,000 people with a disability and their families and friends have attended this annual event - the biggest event of its type in the state.
