Koonya Ocean Beach

Koonya Ocean Beach has a sealed carpark with no designated disabled parking spaces. The lookout is accessed via a short gravel path directly off the carpark, making this site a good point to stop for an ocean view. The surface of the path is hard packed fine gravel.

There are no designated accessible toilets at this site. The toilet block and path to the beach is steep and has steps.

Sorrento Ocean Beach is probably better for longer visits and picnics because it has more accessible facilities.

Sorrento Ocean Beach

Sorrento is the most generally accessible of the ocean beach sites in this park. The rugged coast can be appreciated from a cafeteria and nearby viewing platform.

There is a steep descent into the car park from entry point on Ocean Beach Road and then again from the car park to the beach. The current beach access ramp is very steep.

Near the top of the ramp there is a toilet that satisfies many criteria for accessibility.

A surf life saving club operates during summer.

Portsea Ocean Beach

There are steps down to the beach from the lower car park. A close viewing of the powerful open ocean is therefore relatively inaccessible, but more extensive views along the coast are available from the Observation carpark above.

A steep ramp from the middle car park to the Surf Life Saving Club on the beach can provide limited mobility access.

A surf life saving club operates during summer.

There are designated accessible toilets at this site.

London Bridge

The track from the car park leading down to the rock formation known as London Bridge has a very steep ramp and has no steps.

The path to the lookout is better, and is step free

Fingal Picnic Area

A games paddock is a major attraction of Fingal Area Picnic Area - great for children needing to burn off some energy.

There is a defined route leading to this open grassy space, but no other paths around the site. The picnic tables among the trees are easily visible. The area is free of major obstacles, but the ground surface is uneven.

Designated accessible toilets are not fully compliant.

Cape Schanck and the Lighthouse

The lighthouse has a narrow doorway and narrow spiral stair.

The museum also has a narrow doorway, but overall is more accessible.

The walk to the Cape incorporates a scenic lookout and a boardwalk.
