Equal Access

Increasingly in Tasmania, accommodation providers are equipped to cater for people with disabilities and their carers.

Before deciding where to stay, it's recommended that you contact the business and discuss your special needs and their level of access.

Our main cities are wheelchair aware with kerbing and footpath standards in main commercial areas allowing ease of use.

Salamanca Market and the waterfront precincts in Hobart and Launceston have taken special care to allow ease of access to people using aids of all types.

National Parks and Forest Reserves

Select national parks and forest reserves are also equipped to provide equal access to people with a wide range of disabilities.

Transport for people with disabilities

Our Metro Tasmania bus service now uses 'kneel-down' buses in all four main centres, with wide entrances and special seating areas and stowage for wheelchairs.

Elective seating for seniors is also well-catered for on city transport.
