About Total Recreation

Total Recreation have been operating in the Northern Territory for more than 30 years providing recreation programs and activities for it's members. 

 

Empowering members to become actively involved in their local community through sport, fitness, social, art and travel. Total Recreation ensure activities and events enjoyed by us all are available to those with disabilities, we believe we all have a right to be included, regardless of our level of ability.  

 

Operating under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) programs are conducted in small  groups at a 1:3 ratio (Total Recreation does not provide one on one care or support services).

 

Participation with our peers assists to build confidence, develop skills, have fun and grow our friendship networks. We believe its good to do things in the community but it's better doing it with friends!

“One big family that do everything together”.
