New NDIS Price Guide Released

As you are aware, the NDIA sets the price for some supports to make sure they provide value for money for participants.

As stated by NDIA, “Changes to prices are updated to respond to market trends and changes in costs and are generally identified through an Annual Price Review. The Annual Price Review is undertaken by the NDIA in the lead up to new financial year, with any new prices outlined in an updated price guide, effective 1 July each year.”

In line with this, Access Recreation will increase prices in accordance with the new price guide. Furthermore, as Access Recreation is compliant with the Temporary Transformation Payment (TTP) requirements, the TTP price limits will apply to support items. Please see the table below for an example:

01_011_0107_1_1 Assistance With Self-Care Activities – Standard – Weekday Daytime
01_011_0107_1_1_T Assistance With Self-Care Activities – Standard – Weekday Daytime – TTP

Access Recreation is expanding to North Rockhampton.


We have just purchased new premises at 158 Berserker St (next to the Northside Library) and will be offering new group programs over the coming months. One of the new group programs that will be available from 3.30pm-5.30pm weekday afternoons will  be aimed at children and young people.

We are taking expressions of interest for the following age groups:

  • 8-12 yrs
  • 13-16yrs

The groups will be capped at 6 participants with a ratio of 1:2. We believe this program, facilitated by skilled leaders will provide the right environment for participants to achieve their goals, develop new skills, make friends and enjoy social interactions in a supported and inclusive setting.

If you would like more information or would like to express an interest in the group, please contact Trishelle on 49227151 or email enquiries@accessrec.org.au


New Group Program coming soon.


We are excited at Access Recreation to be taking expressions of interest for our new Volunteer and Work Skills Program.  Proposed to be offered on Fridays from 9-3pm, the group will provide participants the opportunity to develop new skills or build on existing experience and knowledge as well giving something back to the community and make a difference to the people around them. By Volunteering in a workplace, participants will get hands on work experience in a real life working environment. The program will also include work readiness skills such as resume writing, job interviews, planning and organising, communication and teamwork.

If you would like more information or would like to express an interest in the group, please contact Trishelle on 49227151 or email enquiries@accessrec.org.au
