An all-terrain beach wheelchair is available for park visitors who are frail or who have a physical disability. The chair is suited for sandy and semi-rough track surfaces that are not accessible with conventional wheelchairs and disassembles 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 chair can be borrowed for free and may be booked in advance by contacting the Point Nepean Information Centre on (03) 5984 6014. Best access to the beach using the chair is at Observatory Point, 500m from Gunners Cottage car park.
