Visitors with mobility limitations wishing to use the Parks Victoria TrailRider all-terrain wheelchair can now book wheelchair operators, or volunteer Sherpas, to assist them.
The Sherpa Volunteer Program provides trained chair operators to assist in pushing/pulling the visitor in the TrailRider chair on many of the Grampian’s spectacular park trails. The additional physical assistance provided by volunteers makes it possible for visitors to access park trails that would not be possible without several chair operators.
The service is free for park visitors and a minimum of one week's notice is required for booking Sherpa Volunteers.
For further information about the Sherpa Volunteer Program, contact the Brambuk National Park and Culture Centre at Grampians National Park on (03) 5361 4000.
