DISABILITY support worker Emily Newton had not been to Woodford much before but heard great things and decided to take a trip with some of her clients on a Friday afternoon.
The Petrie disability day service opted for a drive through the rolling hills, through which the D'Aguilar Highway takes many tourists and residents.
"I really like it,” Ms Newton said.
"We just came for a drive and we've just gone for a walk and saw all of the cafes and stuff, then they got lunch,” she said.
Ms Newton said sitting at the park benches opposite Woodford Memorial Hall and watching the world go by was a welcome change of scenery from the usual Petrie Town Hall.
"We do all sorts of things during the day but we just heard really good things about here and the guys wanted to come for a visit,” she said.
"I think we're going to have another walk and then we're going to go home.”
Ms Newton's year with the Petrie service group follows three years of working in disability service.
"It's cool, I really enjoy it,” she said.
