The Guide Dogs experience is coming to the Sunshine Coast!

‘Barry’ the Guide Dog-in-training will soon be visiting the Sunshine Coast as a special guest at a unique Guide Dogs event.

Attendees with low or no vision will be able to meet with our specialist instructors and try out the latest adaptive technology available to help them in their daily lives and with their travel needs. They will receive personalised advice on what will suit their needs and lifestyle to help increase their confidence and ability.
Attendees with vision will be able to participate in a range of practical experiences to give them insight to what life is like for people who are blind or vision impaired. They will have the chance to watch a demonstration of a Guide Dog in action, try a guided obstacle course under blindfold and receive practical advice on how to best care for someone who is blind or losing their vision.
