Council has demonstrated commitment to accessibility through improvements to public spaces and places and the provision of accessible amenities, beach accessible equipment and matting.
To ensure the Sunshine Coast is an accessible and inclusive destination a collaborative effort is required from across the region. This includes Chambers of Commerce, accommodation providers, aquatic facilities and activities, entertainment venues and precincts, public transport, shops, restaurants and cafes. All those places and activities able bodied travellers take for granted should be available for travellers of all abilities.
Council is working towards improving accessible and inclusive tourism in the region. If you would like more information or are interested in collaborating to achieve this goal please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone (07) 5441 8401.
