Our organisation offers the standard ATO cents per km  at .78c for owner drivers. For volunteers drivers, we reimburse $15 for ½ day (4 hours) or $30 or a full day (between 7-8 hrs) for any out of pocket expenses.


It is very important for our clients to ensure the highest possible level of safety and client service provided by our drivers.

  • Vehicle requirement is a 4 door sedan/wagon under 10 years of age; suitable for the loading and unloading of seniors e.g. 4WD are not appropriate.
