Newly released resource explores the accessibility of Western Australia’s national parks
In recognition of International Day of People with Disability, Western Australia’s Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions (DBCA) has released a new resource - Access for All - for people with disability, their families and carers that highlights the accessibility improvements in Western Australia's national parks and reserves.
The new publication comprises a collection of articles from DBCA's quarterly magazine, LANDSCOPE.
Articles within the publication cover topics such as how accessibility, wherever possible, is a top priority when planning infrastructure in parks, breakthroughs in adaptive mountain biking and assisted hiking, and how children with disability thrive in nature-based education programs.
The articles include recommendations for the State's most accessible parks and attractions.
QR codes are also embedded that link to videos on the DBCA YouTube channel, including interviews with cyclists using the Arklow Adaptive mountain bike trail.
Western Australia Environment and Disability Services Minister Stephen Dawson notes "the opportunity to get out and explore our conservation estate is something that's available to all Western Australians, and this publication is a useful guide for people of all abilities.”
