Beach Wheelchair -Where to buy a beach wheelchair

Updated on October 3, 2011

For Disabled- where to buy a beach wheelchair

Are you wanting to spend more time at the beach & are wonderingwhere to buy a beach wheelchair ?

If you have read my other hubs you will know that I love snorkeling , swimming and so on.

I am sure that if I was in a wheelchair for any reason I would want to carry on if possible spending time in the water.

I promomised to do this hub for a young guy I met at work one evening -- to find places where he can access a beach in his wheelchair.

As I find out about more wheelchair accessable beaches & pools I will add them to my list.

Maybe if you plan to spend a lot of time at the beach you might want to consider buying a beach wheelchair .

Or -- let me know of your nearest beach & I can approach them for you about obtaining one for local use.

Please let me know if there are beaches near you that are wheelchair friendly so I can add them here.

Everybody will appreciate your help.

Beach Wheelchair

Rockingham Beach

Western Australia for disabled


This small beach Mettams pool  is located on the beautiful sunset coast. It is also located on a very popular cycle track that connects Sorrento Beach and Trigg Island, which is also wheelchair friendly and offers panoramic views.

I was at Rockingham recently for a swim at the beach , unfortunatly I came down the day of the big fire and the trains stopped running   The foreshore park banks onto the beach and provides unobstructed views of the ocean and Garden Island in the distance. A wide flat footpath allows easy access and the seats lining the footpath provide the perfect perch to watch the sea birds and the ocean.!

A personal experience


Noosa Queensland holiday

By Sue Willis (2003).

Sue Willis, of Sydney Australia, shares the joy and freedom her daughter Joanna experienced while on a resort holiday in Noosa Queensland.

Four years ago our daughter, now 22 years old, became a C6 quadriplegic. She uses an electric wheelchair at home, but when she goes out she takes her manual wheelchair that folds into the car boot and gets pushed by her friends. The reason for using the manual chair is that Sydney is not very accessible for an electric wheelchair.

Last year we went on holiday to Noosa and we were delighted to see our daughter, for the first time in four years, manage absolutely independent. All foot paths are wheelchair friendly, while most coffee shops, restaurants and shops have ramps.

The footpaths are very wide, so its just a paradise for wheelchairs.

There are board walks on the beach and all around the coast.

There is a beautiful paved walk all along the river with free Bar-B-Que areas.

There are paved paths in the National Park overlooking the sea and secluded beaches (where we even spotted a koala).

There is a very sophisticated street, with European boutiques and restaurants.

There is a wheelchair friendly ferry and you can even hire a self driven boat that is wheelchair accessible.

For the first time my daughter could go out with her friends without having to ask for a lift in the car. She could go out as far as the battery charge of her electric chair allowed her.

Just like in the good old days before her accident she went in and out as she pleased, completely independently.

I read in a book that Noosa was "over rated", but it is not. If you are looking for a holiday in a place where you can be independent and won't need a car, go to Noosa. I have also tried other accessible places from the "Easy Access Australia" book, like The Wheelies Resort in Byron Bay. The place is very good and accessible but to go out anywhere you need a car. In Noosa, the whole town, not just the hotel, is accessible.

The weather is warm even in winter. We went for the first time in May 2002, then again in October 2002, and next week we will go for the third time in February 2003.

The closest airport is Maroochydore, Queensland, Australia.

      This is great I never thought of Beach Wheelchairs before, my Grandfather spent the last 10 years of his life in a wheelchair, and I would take him out from time to time, I am sure he would had loved strolling the beaches in one of these chairs. Great hub.
