Group Leisure Programs
Life Stream Australia’s Group Leisure Programs are for members aged 16 years and over. Programs predominantly run on weekends and support is provided by Life Stream Australia volunteers.

Activities may include; Fitness sessions, Gold Coast theme parks, bushwalking, social sporting activities, Broncos/Lions games, beach and BBQ trip to Sunshine/Gold Coast, craft, monthly movie outings, whale watching, social dinners and much more.
