We have a beach wheelchair available to hire for free from the following locations:
The Sandcruiser wheelchair is designed to be used on the beach. It has large, wide tyres, which make it easier to move over sand. It has rear wheel steering, which means the chair can pivot easily.
The Australian Life Guard Service manages the hire of the beach wheelchair at Main Beach in Byron Bay.
