Wheelchair and Stroller Hire
Wheelchairs and strollers are both available for hire from the South Bank Visitor Information and Booking Centre. As well as standard wheelchairs, they also have a purpose-built pool wheelchair and a purpose-built beach wheelchair available in case you want to swim while you’re here.
Standard wheelchair and stroller hire fees are $6.50 for a half a day (up to four hours) and $12.50 a full day (four hours and over, until 5:00pm). The pool wheelchair and beach wheelchair are free to use and can be hired for a maximum of two hours only.
When hiring all wheelchairs (including the pool and beach wheelchairs) you must present photo ID and leave a $50 deposit which will be refunded when you return the wheelchair. When hiring a stroller, you must present photo ID and leave a $20 deposit which will be refunded when you return the stroller.
Bathrooms and Showers
For general use, standard disabled bathrooms are located at The Courier-Mail Piazza and Stanley Street Plaza. If you want to visit South Bank’s water facilities while you’re here, a specially designed disabled bathroom that includes a shower, ceiling hoist and a change table/shower trolley is located behind the Central Cafes.
Please note that to use the ceiling hoist in this bathroom, you will need to bring your own sling with loop attachments. The key for the ceiling hoist can be collected from the South Bank Visitor Information and Booking Centre, which is located in Stanley Street Plaza.
