Tannum Sands to host all abilities Beach Access Day
As part of Gladstone Regional Council’s acknowledgement of Disability Action Week, Tannum Sands will play host to Beach Access Day on Saturday, 21 September from 9am-1pm.
Providing residents with a disability access to enjoy a social and inclusive outing, Gladstone Region Councillor Kahn Goodluck said this was a great way for people with a disability to enjoy the Tannum Sands beach.
“With the help of Push Mobility and Accessible Beaches, specialised equipment will be freely available for use at the event,” Councillor Goodluck said.
“We have beautiful beaches within our region and this initiative will ensure everyone has an opportunity to experience that.”
Council has contracted Push Mobility, a disability equipment provider, and co-host Accessible Beaches, who utilise the Mobi-Chair Floating Beach Wheelchair, an amphibious rolling beach chair.
Cr Goodluck said other specialised equipment available would include the Mobi-Mat and the Lasher Sport BT Beach Wheelchair (self-propelled). “I encourage everyone to join this inclusive celebration for the whole community,” he said.
The event will take place at the Millennium Esplanade beach access near the Tannum Sands Surf Lifesaving Club.
