There are two beach wheelchairs available for use at the Geelong Waterfront, free of charge to people with limited mobility.
The wheelchairs are available all year round and can be booked through the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
Over summer, one wheelchair is available from the lifeguard room at Eastern Beach during patrol hours.
The two chairs have large rubber tyres suitable for all terrain access and floating armrests to give users the feeling of floating in the water.
We have also installed rubber beach matting to provide a safe pathway from Eastern Beach car park and footpath to the water’s edge at the outdoor swimming enclosure.
The new beach pathway provides easier access across the soft sand to help people who experience mobility challenges and parents with prams to get closer to the water.
7 days a week, all year round - please book ahead.
8:00am to 5:00pm (nominal session time is 1 hour).
