For guests with Autism 

Proxy Queue System

A Proxy Queue System is available for guests who are unable to wait in the queue, for a number of different reasons. This means that a guest does not have to physically wait in the queue rails in order to ride. If the approximate wait time is 30 minutes, the entry host will give the guest a card stating to come back in 30 minutes and they will go straight onto the ride. If a ride does not have an entry host, please visit Guest Services and they will facilitate a time to present to the attraction.

You do not need a medical certificate to utilise the Proxy system. This system is available for use by anyone if they wish however we do ask that guests only use the Proxy System for one ride at a time to ensure fairness to all our valued guests.

Quiet Areas

There are a number of quiet areas around the park that don’t see as many people. These are the Western Town area near Wild West Falls, the Arkham courtyard near Arkham Asylum ride exit and Taz Rest Stop – This is a designated rest area that provides garden seating, bean bags, microwaves, bottle warmers, books and toys for all guests to enjoy.

AUTISM: Minecraft Teamwork Academy (Ages 7-15) - Using Zoom so the location is anywhere.

We've been running this with 25 children for a couple of months and children are getting amazing new skills from interacting with others. This program highly recommended by speech therapists, OTs and psychologists.

The Minecraft Teamwork Academy is on Saturday mornings or Wednesday afternoons.
Your child can book in for a weekly timeslot (60 minute sessions).

Here is where you can see exactly how it helps children with Autism: https://www.amazingskills.com.au/minecraft

How it works:
• In each group we will have about 6 students working together.
• Each week we will have a different project that we work on together as a team (e.g. create a beach scene or a playground or a factory etc)
• Students will need to negotiate with each other. The golden rule of Minecraft Skills Academy is “It is more important to work as a team than to make good builds.”

Session Time: One hour sessions
Pricing: $57.10 for the session.

NDIS Funding: Parents generally claim as
• Increased Social & Community Participation
• Improved Daily Living

Times on Saturdays:
Choose a One-Hour Session within these times:
9am-1pm Syd/Melb/Hob time - That’s Australian Eastern Daylight Savings time.
(That’s 8am-12pm in Brisbane, or 8.30am-12.30pm in Adelaide. In Perth, That is 6am-10am)

Zoom Location: Your lounge room, using zoom.
You don’t need to travel anywhere. It's easy to use Zoom from your lounge room.

Keep doing sessions as long as you like. 😊
This is not a set-weeks-time course. We take public holidays off but most of our kids will stay with us for a long, long time.

Our Tech Guy will help parents/children get set up when you arrive/login

Providing multi-day educational adventures in Far North Queensland (and in Sydney), We connect student groups to community, culture and nature with extraordinary tours.

All-Abilities Teen Camps
Our sleepover weekend camps bring together young people of different abilities. We focus on fun and making friends through active and playful activities outdoors.  Our approach is to encourage teens to find common bonds while we also celebrate the qualities that make us all unique.  We feel it is important to get young people off their devices and out into the natural world, where they can learn to have fun without screens. For young people looking to make connections to people and nature, this is the place!

Facilitated by an activities leader, support workers and a team nurse, our camps are well-suited for young people who may need extra support and attention, but are ready for the challenge of a multi-day adventure. As an added bonus, while the teens are having fun parents get a respite from their caring responsibilities.

You will find that your child returns home with new friends, and with a sense of independence and confidence after having stretched their comfort levels.

Cow Cuddling Co. is a Therapy Cow Farm located in the Goldsborough Valley near Cairns (Australia). Our mission is to use Cow Therapy to help people living with mental illness, intellectual disabilities, and anyone wishing to support their own mental health through direct contact with these loving animals.

Cow Cuddling Co. is a private organisation that is completely dedicated to providing love and freedom to our Therapy Cows (Amy, Ella, Holly, Sally, Sophia, Milkshake & Babyccino).

Cow Cuddling involves meeting, sitting with, cuddling, and scratching hand-raised cows on a farm. The slower heart rate and warm body temperature of the cows induces a slowing of our own heart rate, as well as the release of Oxytocin, our social bonding hormone.

Book now to cuddle with our beautiful cows today to help them and their family live happily ever after.
