Wheel chairs designed for the beach are now available for visitors to use on Geelong’s Waterfront.
Lifeguards at Eastern Beach will provide access to the wheel chairs from the lifeguard rooms during patrol times over summer.
The wheel chairs offer improved access to the beach.
One wheel chair is available between 11:00am and 6:00pm daily from the lifeguard room at Eastern Beach and a second wheel chair is available from the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.

“Geelong’s beach wheel chairs can be used on the sand and in shallow water giving people living with a disability, or even a broken leg, a more enjoyable experience at the beach.
This is the first time we have offered the service from Eastern Beach.
Wheel chairs are free to use on a first come first served basis.”
