Summary

Enjoy a fun day at the beach with greater accessibility and support! As a part of our ongoing mission to create social impact on the Gold Coast, we are helping to make beaches more inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Every weekend of the summer patrol season, accessible beach mats and beach-friendly wheelchairs will be available at participating surf clubs, designed to assist people to reach the water's edge. Beach matting and beach wheelchairs are provided through the City of Gold Coast Beach Access Program. The beach access mats are manned by the Volunteering Gold Coast volunteers at the following beaches during the patrol season: Mermaid Beach, Surfers Paradise, Neptune Royal Life Saving Club Tallebudgera, Pacific Life Saving Club and Ian Dipple Lagoon Labrador. The service is weather reliant and is unable to run during bad weather.
