Travelling is an activity that almost everyone puts on their bucket lists. Unfortunately, this dream activity is also relatable to the Australian members of the disabled community. Fortunately for them, there are tourist destinations within their country that offer ease and convenience during their visit. Here are five of these destinations.
Sydney, New South Wales
Coming first on the list, Sydney is one iconic location in Australia. Sydney is notorious for its summer tropical ambiance thanks to numerous nearby beaches. The Opera house by the Sydney harbor is a symbolic piece of architecture and recognizable sail-pattern asymmetric designs. Tourists can also experience the fantastic city nightlife filled with luxury.
Sydney is very much welcoming to its disabled guests and tourists. Establishments around the city contain many disabled-friendly facilities and features. In addition, with the country being a center for commerce, medical assistance can reach people—specifically disabled people—faster and better.
Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory
Uluru-Kata Tjuta Park is a protected area in the northern territory of Australia. Its protection is because the location provides significant cultural importance and a gorgeous landscape.
Like the allocated spaces across the US, this national park contains native tribes and their contributory culture. On top of it are Mother Nature’s carving products themselves. Despite the rocky online appearances, nature knows to jam-pack the area with a healthy ecosystem in the hot and dry climate of the region. With that, anyone going on the tour in the park can find admiration in the bird-watching activity and beautiful rock formations like Ayers rock.
Coffs Harbour, New South Wales
Another thriving city in the country, tourists can locate Coffs Harbour in the northern area of NSW. Coffs Harbour offers its guests its highly-anticipated beaches and vacation-fantasy coastlines. But, if sands don’t entice the beach getaway dream, perhaps the tourists can find fun in the sea. Activities in the Coffs Harbour waters include cruise trips, diving, and even the mere appreciation of coral reefs.
Coffs Harbour is also a disability-friendly destination because mobility maps cater to specific individuals. Mobility maps offer myriad information, such as hazardous areas and establishments that bring amenities and features for the disabled.
Great Ocean Drive, Victoria
Fasten the seatbelts as the Great Ocean Drive can be a simplistic yet substantive view for anyone driving on it. Sitting on the cliff areas of Victoria, the Great Ocean Drive is a long 240-kilometer pass between Torquay and Allansford.
Albeit not an actual destination to settle and camp, the outstanding sceneries speak more for the grandiose sights it can offer. Lush vegetation spots the top of the cliffs while pointy limestone formations peak at the open waters and beach. Rest assured that any disabled persons are safe to admire nature’s beauty in their respective seats in their vehicle.
Kangaroo Island, South Australia
Kangaroo Island is the complete depiction of the Australian landscape’s stereotype. The island is an entire marriage of the creeping grasslands and the rocky terrain where creatures like kangaroos, koalas, and Tasmanian devils inhabit it. While the island is disabled-friendly for accessibility features and facilities within the place, there is far greater convenience in bringing a professional caregiver. Additionally, through NDIS support coordination providers, any disabled person’s travels can now be more memorable and compelling.
