FDA enables groups from charity and welfare organisations to experience the joys of fishing activities. These activities provide the opportunity and encouragement for these special people to learn new physical and social skills while thoroughly enjoying
The fishing experiences include shore based fishing at various safe locations in Adelaide such as Mawson Lakes and West Lakes. We are constantly on the lookout for additional suitable locations which must have safe walking access for disabled people, a secure safe waters edge surface suitable for chairs and toilet facilities in close proximity. In addition to shore based fishing, on water experiences are available using our wheelchair friendly 25 foot Sweetwater pontoon boat.
Special fittings enable wheelchairs to easily and safely board and be accommodated on the vessel. Excursions in the protected waters of the Port river and around the Garden Island area are mainly used, however other suitable waters are also being sought. These excursions show the participants the features of the river, including the dolphins, and landmarks along the shore.
All our activities are provided for members without charge.
