First Ever Holidays


The Magical Getaway Foundation (MGF) is pioneering social tourism in Australia.

Social tourism, which has been operating in the UK and Europe for over sixty years, seeks to help vulnerable and disadvantaged groups who normally wouldn’t be able to benefit from tourism opportunities.

We define it as providing equitable access to breaks away from home, for people who would otherwise be excluded.  

The Swinge’s first ever holiday to Lorne in December 2017 created life long memories and hope for the future.

Our holiday brought us closer as a family and made us stronger. It allowed us to take time out of our busy schedule and the day to day stress and just sit back and relax. It gave us time to remember how amazing life can be and to find the good in every moment. We never thought we would ever have the opportunity to make this happen for our family.
