Beach Wheelchairs

Child in beach wheelchair high-fiving lifeguard

Shoalhaven City Council has 10 beach wheelchairs available free of charge for beaches across the City.

The beach wheelchairs will provide and improve access to the beach for children and young people living with disability.

The child and adult size all-terrain beach wheelchairs will ensure children, particularly those aged 9 to15 years, have access to and are included in mainstream activities, for example, visiting the beach.

Hirers need to:

  • Follow safety procedures
  • Sign a hire and indemnity form
  • Only use the beach wheelchair at the designated site they are booked from
  • Only use the beach wheelchair between the flags as patrolled by the Surf Life Saving Club
  • Make sure carers assist in using the beach wheelchair

Each patrolled beach site:

  • Will have both an adult and child size chair available for outdoor hire/use only

Other sites:

  • Will have an adult size chair available for hire/use
