Off Road Wheelchair Access


Wheelchair Bush WalkingOnly wheelchair occupants, their carers and gopher rider's understand just how limiting restricted access can feel. Generally the public don't think about it, unless they know somebody in the situation.

ATM screens are too high to read, many shops have access via stairs and going to the beach or bush-walking with friends is normally out of the question.

Thankfully our world is becoming more aware of these limitations, and Disabled Surfers Australiathere are many clever people finding solutions to these problems.

Rather than change the world, in many cases, it may be easier to change the wheelchair or motorcycle.

This page has a focus on improving accessibility and the lives of those with physical limitations.

Here is a Beach Wheelchair we made ourselves by converting a standard wheelchair.
We purchased Wheeleez Balloon Wheels and axles from Beach Wheels Australia and dismantled a fold-up chair for a hand rail. The footrest is marine ply mounted using some shelf brackets.

These wheels glide over the most boggy sand with ease and even climb sand dunes. The only disadvantage using these wheels is that they float. In rough surf, the chair is rolling side to side and being tossed by the waves. This makes transfer from the chair very difficult. We might try adding some weights to keep it on the bottom. To turn the chair, we lift the hand grips to raise the back wheels. Works extremely well. Might need to order another set of wheels for the esky. lol
