Beach wheelchairs and a sand ramp are being trialed at Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast. It’s being done by the Council and the Burleigh Surf Club. They’re free to use by anyone with restricted mobility. It’s a really positive initiative and it’d be great to see the trial prove that there’s a need for these types of facilities on our beaches.
Well done to all involved, the beach is a quintessential Gold Coast experience and it’s great to see this trial happening (and hopefully it will be successful, and extended). During the trial period the ramp will be available every Saturday 9.00am to 12.00pm, until April 2017. Powered by awesome volunteers from the SLSC.
With some great options for accessible accommodation on the Gold Coast maybe it’s time to look at booking a beach holiday! Check out our accommodation options here.
