To celebrate people of all abilities, a large stripe of matting will be laid at Town Beach on December 2.
The beach matting, known as Mobi-Mat, will allow people with wheelchairs to access the water’s edge for the day without frustrating logistical issues.
A Davinci chair and Mobi-Chair Floating Wheelchair will also be made available for the public to try.
The day also boasts fun for all ages with special guest Santa, a coffee van, ice-cream, a sausage sizzle and music.
Accessible Beaches Australia and partner Push Mobility will be hosting the event, which is funded by the City of Mandurah.
Need to know:
- The event will run from 10am-2pm.
- No booking are required to use the matting but people are encouraged to contact organisers to book beach wheelchairs.
- You can access Town Beach via Dolphin Drive in Mandurah with ACROD bays available. There will also be overflow parking, including ACROD bays at the carpark of Breakwater Parade.
