Victoria’s accessible attractions open their doors for Accessibility Weekend


Independence Australia’s annual Accessibility Weekend welcomed over 25 accessible Victorian attractions across the weekend 9 -10 September.

Throughout the weekend, over 100 participants who used a wheelchair and their carers visited an exciting range of the metropolitan and regional attractions on offer.

Among the attractions who joined Accessibility Weekend for the first time in 2017 were Casey Stadium, Endeavour Hills Leisure Centre, Arthurs Seat Eagle and Aquarena Aquatic Centre.

While venues who continued to uphold their proud tradition of Accessibility Weekend participation were Sovereign Hill, Eureka Skydeck, Phillip Island Group and Moonlit Sanctuary.

This year’s event also included an opportunity for one lucky participant to win an accessible hot air balloon ride in Global Ballooning Australia’s Easy Access Basket. The prize was won by Karen who accompanied by her friend, soared high above the Yarra Valley at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning.

Planning is already underway for Accessibility Weekend 2018, we look forward to seeing you all then.
