Accessible beaches

Accessible beach matting and wheelchair

Council is working in partnership with local surf lifesaving clubs throughout the region to enable everyone, regardless of their age or ability, to access the sand and water at our region’s most popular beaches.

See the initiative in action

Beach matting

The installation of beach matting enables people who might ordinarily find it difficult or impossible to travel over sand, such as wheelchair users, seniors and parents with prams, to access the beach.

Beach wheelchairs

Beach wheelchairs enhance the beach experience by allowing users to travel along the shoreline and into shallow water.

Accessible beaches trial

Between September 2019 and May 2020, Council is trialling the accessible beaches initiative at Woorim Beach in partnership with Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club.
