December 1, 2023 @ 7:30 am - February 29, 2024 @ 5:00 pm

A person in a wheelchair is seen on the beach with a blue mat, which is part of the LevelUp accessible beach program.

Beach matting, wheelchairs and life jackets are available to use at no charge. The equipment is suitable for both adults and children.

Surf Life Saving Clubs provide the equipment on weekends and public holidays from September until May.

Arrangements outside these days and times may be considered by some of the clubs.

Please book equipment before your visit. If you are unable to make contact ahead your visit, talk with lifesavers when you arrive. If available for use, the equipment will be set up for you.

Volunteer lifesavers may not have the capacity to assist people onto the beach. It is the responsibility of the user to ensure they have help to use the equipment.
