Everyone Deserves to Enjoy the Gold Coast Beaches This Summer
We are collaborating with local surf clubs to make this happen
With 20% of the Gold Coast population estimated to be living with a disability, it is more important than ever to create experiences and opportunities that are equally accessible for all abilities. As a part of our ongoing mission to create social impact on the Gold Coast, we are helping to make the beaches more inclusive and accessible – starting at the city’s most iconic landmark.
Every weekend of the summer patrol season, accessible beach mats and beach friendly wheelchairs will be available at participating surf clubs, designed to assist people to reach the waters edge.
A team of dedicated volunteers are on site each week to set up the mats and provide care and support, ensuring you have the best experience at the beach.
This is the first step we are taking to create a #AccessibleSummer – a summer that can be enjoyed by everyone.
