Limited vision or mobility need not prevent you from visiting Queensland’s national parks if you choose from our most accessible parks.
Some of the most beautiful moments to be had within a Queensland national park do not require perfect vision or mobility, and can easily be enjoyed by the very young or much older visitors.
We are continually working to improve facilities and accessibility in our parks for visitors with limited vision or mobility, and for families with prams and strollers. Improved features include level walking tracks, wide boardwalks and lookouts, as well as wheelchair- pram- and stroller-accessible toilets, camp sites and picnic areas.
While not all facilities meet Australian standards, many are suitable for visitors in wheelchairs with someone to assist them.
Some walking tracks have tactile indicators for vision-impaired visitors. Braille booklets, tactile maps and audio headsets are also available.
