About Us

Welcome

Push Adventures is a South Australian business, founded in 2014 by husband and wife, Scott and Clair Crowley.

Passionate about enhancing tourism experiences for people with physical disabilities and their travel companions, we offer practical advice to make your tourism business inclusive and accessible by a whole range of guests. Why? Because we want to ensure everyone is getting experience all Australia has to offer.

“We love Australia and we want to show it off to everyone! We’ve pushed through lots of hurdles during our adventures but keep going back for more. We want to reduce the barriers for all travellers. Utilising our local knowledge and industry experience we want travellers to have access to the right information and feel confident to explore Australia.”

We look forward to encouraging the tourism industry to have the confidence and ability to welcome more people through their doors.
