Henley To Host Accessible Beach Day In Support Of National Inclusion Campaign

Accessible Beaches Australia are on a mission to make all beaches accessible by 2020, and are hosting a campaign event at Henley Beach to spread awareness as well as a day of fun under the sun.

Accessible Beaches Australia have joined forces with the City of Charles Sturt and Push Mobility to bring you their annual event, Accessible Beaches Launch Day at Henley Beach – giving those who are unable to maneuver solely on the beach a platform to do so.

Following the success of last year’s event, the organisation is returning on December 9, in a bid to campaign for permanent accessible beaches, not only in Adelaide, but around the country.

This free event will see slip resistant and stable beach access mats rolled out for wheelchair users, standing frame users, parents with prams, and pedestrians who need a smoother surface to walk on.

And to top it off, the mats are made from 100% recycled plastics and is ADA approved. Bonus!

One of the purposes of the launch is to show the community how serious an issue the lack of beach accessibly really is. Accessible Beaches Australia aim to make most patrolled beaches in Aus. permanently wheelchair accessible by 2020.

So rally you family, friends, snacks and sunscreen, down to Henley Beach to show your support.

What, When, Where:

  • Sunday, December 9, at 10am – 2pm
  • Personal needs/items (E.g. sling, sunscreen, snacks)
  • Drop off zone in Northern car park for Disabled Park holders from 9.30am – 2pm
  • Care Radio live at the square
