  1. Dave Stratton is doing wonderful work in encouraging people with disabilities out into nature with the all-terrian wheelchairs - TrailRider and beach access. Parks Victoria is very proud to work with Dave, our friends and partners to help spread the word about park accessibility. Keep it up, Dave. Great what has been achieved so far, and so exciting to think of the potential of what we can do next...

  2. You are a wonderful ambassador, not only for the TrailRider, but for people with mobility difficulties in general. Your sunny and positive approach inspire all of us - whether able-bodied or disabled - to lead more courageous lives. Lovely interview. You should do it full-time.
