First responder families join us on an adventure, and step back in time to another era when life was tough and gold was found in the hills. Have fun riding on the goldfields railway and enjoy a tour deep in the tunnel of a gold mine.  It’s a great opportunity to build on and make new social connections with other first responder families. Developing close relationships within your family and broadening your social networks and range of relationships with others in the wider community, is important for your wellbeing. Plus learning new things can be fun, boost our self-confidence, self-esteem and connect us with others.
