Accessible Public Events in Melbourne

As we are preparing for the SuperBikes in two weeks it comes to mind just how far Melbourne has come in terms of wheelchair accessibility over the last 15 years and how there has been an increase in Wheelchair Accessible Public Events in Melbourne. When we first started out the SuperBikes, Motogp, Spring Racing Carnival… none of these were wheelchair accessible. 

For the last 15+ years we have had the privilege of seeing Melbourne become more accessible to those using Wheelchairs in our community.

We have worked with major event organisers in Melbourne like the Australian Open, Motogp, Spring Racing Carnival, Superbikes and the President’s Cup Golf Tournament, facilitating wheelchair-accessible transportation across the various tracks, allowing for increased accessibility to those with limited mobility.

We are seeing first-hand how wheelchair accessibility is starting to become a standard for Melbourne sports events, whereby sport event organisers in Melbourne are now coming to us to request we help them become more accessible.

Whilst, we still hear terrifying stories from people with a lived experience of accessibility discrimination in Melbourne, at Wheelaway we still believe that the progress over the last 15 years indicates what’s possible for the next 15 years.
