Book a floating beach wheelchair

Friday, January 4, 2019

Today is a perfect day to book a floating wheelchair and enjoy a day at Half Moon Bay, Black Rock or Hampton beaches. With our spiffy new beach matting, and our two floating wheelchairs, access for people with mobility issues is a whole lot easier.

Check availability and book a wheelchair via our website. Bookings need to be made at least 48 hours in advance if possible. The system is managed by friendly lifeguards at both beaches, so bookings are available when they are on duty (usually weekends over summer). Now people living with disability and their families can cool off and have fun at the beach together.

This initiative is part of Bayside City Council's commitment to supporting everyone to live an active and healthy lifestyle regardless of age, gender, locality, personal circumstance or physical ability.
