Creating mateship and connection

Bamboo Projects is a registered charity and registered NDIS provider that offers outdoor therapies for people with disabilities and mental health concerns.

We have Australia’s first and only wheelchair accessible boat that offers onboard mental health support.

We feel there is a HUGE gap in the traditional mental health support model that we aim to fill. We believe that many mental health concerns stem from a lack of connection and purpose. We foster connection and we provide people with the skills to move forward to discover and enhance their purpose in life.


We support people through their NDIS plans to have access and inclusion through outdoor therapies.

Support Workers

We have a team of qualified support workers to support you in your journey in gaining a better mental health. We have male and female workers, and indigenous support workers.

Community Events

The purpose of our community events is to provide a safe and comfortable space for people to talk about their mental health concerns. Share struggles, successes and gain strategies on how to move forward.

I can’t thank Bamboo Projects enough for how they have helped me. When they first helped me I was in a very dark place, I am still not perfect but I am in a far better place then what I was. The meet and greets are great they really show you that you are not alone, there are other people out there who feel the same way. They are not doctors, mental health nurses, psychologists etc they are simply people who have been through or are going through what you have been through and simply want to share their story and strategies that have helped them with you.

Chris is a highly motivated person who lights up peoples faces everyday with his positive outlook on life. Coming from his background and his struggles, he is living proof that his method of outdoor activities and physical exercise has a big impact in curing mental illnesses.

Thank you for making a boat trip accessible for our son. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip!

We love our volunteers and we couldn’t run our programs without them.

If you would like to volunteer with Bamboo Projects, send us an email and we will add you to our volunteer database. We will notify you of our next volunteer opportunity.

Volunteering often involves getting a bit dirty and cleaning up the waterways of the Sunshine Coast with our environmental programs. We have very limited spots available on our wheelchair access boat.

We are an approved volunteer organisation through Centrelink / Human Services for people requiring volunteer hours.

Get in Touch

Contact us anytime.

If you need support urgently, please call Chris on 0423 346 605.

We are not medical professionals, and we don’t provide medical advice. We are here to provide mateship and connection and to support you from our lived experience history, so you can get through your tough times.
