Sutherland Shire Council in New South Wales, Australia, has a beach wheelchair available for community use at Cronulla Beach (South Cronulla). The wheelchair allows access to the beach for people who use wheelchairs or who find the beachfront difficult to negotiate. The chair is available free of charge for short term loans.
The chair is available 7 days a week from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. in summer and 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. in winter.
Deschamps' Mobi-Mat provides access for wheelchairs, strollers, and pedestrians on sand, grass, or other soft and unstable surfaces. The beach access mat is a light portable polyester matting that is temporarily or permanently laid down on the ground to provide non-slip and traffic resistant access for all.
Ultra-light, easy to set up and store, Mobi-Mat makes the path of travel accessible for people walking barefoot and assisted by walkers or crutches and for vehicles including wheelchairs, strollers, bicycles, carts, motorcycles and automobiles (emergency and law enforcement). It resists UV rays and temperatures -40° F to + 176° F.
