What does this mean for Out Doors?

Unfortunately, Out Doors scheduled programs from Monday – Thursday, 15th-18th of February won’t be running while the state is locked down. Programs that are running after this date will be assessed next week, and we will provide advice based on the Victorian Government’s recommendations.

Participants who are registered to attend any of these programs will be contacted by Out Doors Inc. staff.
