Beach wheelchair booking form

AVAILABILITY: Chairs are available to be booked for use between the hours of 9:30am and 4:30pm, from the summer patrol season commencing in September public school holidays to the end of the April public school holidays.

To provide access to many of the Coast’s beaches for people living with a disability we have a suite of serviced beach wheelchairs available for both the local community and visitors to our region.

Beach Access for Summer 23/24

  • Beach matting has been installed at Ocean, Umina and Terrigal beaches & Toowoon Bay. These beaches have been chosen because erosion is low to moderate, and they are relatively flat. 
  • With the storm events over winter and large swell fronts, a number of beach locations are still affected by severe loss of sand and beach access damage to access tracks. Council is continually monitoring all its patrolled beach locations and is in discussion with other departments undertaking ongoing repairs to these assets in the lead up to summer.
  • Some of our beach locations, however, at Soldiers, North Entrance and The Entrance beaches have substantial beach erosion and will require significant repairs to the affected access tracks with a number of these required to be closed to public until works progress on repairs.
  • Council has a suite of beach wheelchairs available for free hire for residents and visitors across its serviced beaches.
  • To accommodate varied needs, there are 3 models of beach wheelchairs.
  • Whilst beach wheelchair hire can be arranged on site though the lifeguards at individual Surf Life Saving Clubs, online bookings are highly encouraged to ensure the preferred model of beach wheelchair is available.
  • Summer patrol season commences September public school holidays.
