Beach and River Access
Best access to the river and to Norman Beach for all terrain beach wheelchairs and strollers is from 1st Boat Ramp located on the bank of Tidal River at low tide. This is located near the camping area just up from the day visitor area carpark. The beach is approximately 500m from the boat ramp and chair/stroller operators need to be reasonably fit. The boat ramp consists of a concrete surface and has a slope of approximately 1:10 which is reasonably steep. When the water line has receded, there is usually a surface of compacted damp sand at the bottom of the boat ramp. The riverbed at low tide is reasonably level and consists of a damp compacted sand surface and some very shallow water flows in sections. A damp compacted sand surface can be followed all the way to the beach.
Access to Norman Beach and Tidal River
It is recommended that access by all terrain beach wheelchairs and strollers is at low tide only. Access along the riverbed and bank is subject to varying water flows in the river. Inspection of the access route to the beach is strongly recommended prior to taking all terrain beach wheelchairs and strollers over it.
