After many months of lockdown, summer is finally here. With restrictions easing, there’s no better way to celebrate than to start organising your next getaway.
It’s natural to feel a little nervous about socialising again, especially when we’ve had to spend most of the year at home. However, you can rest assured that as experts in accessible travel, Leisure Options have all the experience and are here to help you at every step of the way in planning your holiday.

We are Covid Safe
We are a COVID Clean Practicing Business. This means that we have developed and initiated business practices to maintain high hygiene standards to minimise the risks from Covid-19, so you can feel confident and safe.

Accessible travel options
With accessible travel, there are many options depending on your preference and needs. You can choose to travel individually or in a small group, local, interstate or international, meet us along the way or even at the destination
The right level of support
At Leisure Options, we can organise a wide range of holidays for people with different skills, abilities and interests. To help you choose the most appropriate supported holiday, we have designed Holiday Categories and Holiday Ratios.
Depending on your capability and needs, you can choose the most suitable holiday category. Holiday Ratios indicate the number of staff members on a holiday for each traveller. This ensures you have the right amount of support needed while travelling.
You can refer to our Holiday Categories & Ratios page for more information. When you’ve determined the most suitable Holiday Category according to your needs, you can easily start planning your holiday, knowing you’ll have the right amount of support.
Start planning your holiday
Our Holiday Planner makes it easy for you to search for your ideal getaway. Simply choose where you want to go, when you want to go, and the type of holiday you want. You can also select the appropriate Holiday Category according to your needs.

Respite care options
At Leisure Options, we believe that a great respite programme offers more than just rest. Respite supports people with disabilities and their carers by giving participants time away from their usual living environment, while giving carers a short break from their caring responsibilities.
Our respite property at Anglesea is fully equipped with amenities, and our team can prepare daily activity plans that meet your needs and interests. Our tour leaders can tailor a mix of activities to suit each individual. Find out more about our Respite Care.
We are an NDIS service provider
We are a nationally registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) service provider.
The NDIS will provide funding for the staff support you require so you can enjoy a safe and fun-filled travel experience. The amount that NDIS covers depends on your support requirements and the categories you have in your plan.
Your NDIS plan can also include respite care, as time away is a powerful tool in strengthening your independence, life skills, and community access experiences. Learn more about using NDIS funding for a holiday.
