Boathouse kiosk height is 93cm staff are happy to assist and have a clipboard for signing documentation when required.
The entrance to the boathouse has level access.
Accessible toilets, changing rooms and shower are available. The toilet is equipped with an emergency pull cord alarm.
The main beach area is sand. There is a firm level path extending from the boathouse to the adventure golf bridge adjacent to the beach. There is a wooden walkway across the beach with a jetty for wheelchair access direct to craft. There is also a bench which cover ¾ of the length of the beach path for viewing purposes.
The jetty is used to access floating craft which would be very difficult to launch from the beach due to grounding. This area is accessed by nine wooden steps with standard height handrails. At the bottom of the steps is a floating bridge with handrails either side which leads onto the main jetty area.
Along the back of the full length of the jetty is a handrail. The arms of the jetty have no additional support or rails.
The structure moves with water movement. Different sections of the structure move independently. This is a wooden structure which can become wet.
Wheelchair access is made possible to any craft able to be used by the individual via the adapted beach jetty.
The Adventure Golf area is wheelchair accessible, however the incline on the walkway up to the first hole could be challenging for guests with restricted mobility. Also, guests in wheelchairs do have to go through one of the theming elements and have to ride over the playing surface.
