Windamere’s primary objective is to help and support people with intellectual disabilities and acquired brain injury to achieve their life goals. We do this by providing a diverse range of worthwhile and fun experiences in a beautiful 300-acre semi-rural farm environment.

We present unique learning activities to help participants achieve greater independence and self-awareness, and support them to better integrate into the community in a safe, dignified and responsible manner.

Our staff work with participants to develop their social skills, improve their everyday life skills utilising positive behavioural support whenever needed.

Windamere’s unique environment provides pre-vocational learning and training opportunities using the on-site chicken farm, olive grove and wetlands, vegetable garden and much, much more.

We provide community access opportunities to help develop social and life skills, including transport training and map reading and visits to museums, cinemas and shopping centres.

Windamere offers a range of programmes, from single day excursions, to ongoing multi-day options and overnight stays, as well as our unique Camp Windamere facility.

Many activities are outdoors, spread across Windamere’s 300 acres, others take place within the various buildings on the property, including a fully-equipped kitchen adjacent to a large air-conditioned hall, arts and crafts centre, and sensory and interactive computer rooms.
