People who have trouble getting around on sand, or accessing the water, now have the chance to enjoy a beach side visit with the use of a Beach Wheelchair.
A Beach Wheelchair is available for use at Burnie's West Beach.
The Burnie Surf Life Saving Club can provide assistance to access the beach friendly wheelchair on West Beach waterfront during patrol hours 11am – 4pm Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
If you would like to access the beach friendly wheelchair outside of these hours you may request your own free key by completing the form on this page, or from the City Offices during business hours.
This key will access both the beach wheelchair and the liberty swing in Burnie park.
Proudly brought to Burnie by the joint working group of Council, The Autism Centre, Education Department, School of Special Education and the Fairy God Mothers.
