The toilet has grab railing on one side wall.
The toilet cubicle also has a reasonably accessible wash basin with a cold water tap with a turn style knob. There are no power points in this area.
The accessible toilet and change area does not have an accessible shower. Visitors would need to use the showers located in the men’s and women’s toilets.
There are two shower cubicles located in each of the men’s and women’s toilets. Each cubicle is approximately 1.5 metres long x 1.45 metres wide and has a hinged door. The opening of the shower doors is quite narrow - approximately 830mm wide. There is a small step (110mm high) to get into the shower cubicles making it difficult for people with limited mobility.
The shower cubicles have separate cold and hot water taps and have no grab railing or shower seating. This is a small bench in the cubicle.

The vanity mirrors are mounted quite high for use by visitors in wheelchairs. Power points are near the wash basins and reasonably accessible.
