Rowena Jackson Retirement Village Outings

"On the road again, I can't wait to get on the road again!"I'm sure that when Willie Nelson sang his famous song, he had Rowena Jackson in mind!

Picture a map of the Southland, and for each trip it is marked with a drawing pin. The box of pins is nearly empty and there are defintely no directions left unmarked! North, South, East and West. We enjoy travelling this beautiful country of ours and drinking in it's delights.

Some sections of the Village has a designated day each week for using the vans and are thrilled bu their seaside tours and country drives. This time of year it is always lovely to see the magnificant autumn colours and falling leaves and as one resident noted, it's even better that we don't have to sweep them up.

The Resthome also enjoys a number of special interrest trips to places such as the SPCA, shops, parks, art galleries etc. The Studios and Townhouses use both vans and a bus to escape to amzing destinations like the Glow Worm Caves and Taieri Gorge Railway.

Meals out also take residents to an interesting variety of venues and the vans can often be seen at beautiful local walking tracks, mini golf, ten pen bowls and many other fun places.

So all aboard for lots of exciting excursions!
