Two all terrain beach wheelchairs - an adult size and a child size - are available for park visitors who are frail or who have a physical disability. The chairs are suited for sandy and semi rough track surfaces that are not accessible with conventional wheelchairs. They disassemble to fit in the back of a station wagon. A reasonably strong and fit person is required to push the chair on the beach and on trails with significant gradients.

The chairs can be borrowed for free and may be booked in advance by contacting Cape Conran Coastal Park Cabins and Camping on (03) 5154 8438. Best access to the beach using the chair is at Sailors Grave Day Visitor Area.
