Two local operators share in accessibility funding

Congratulations to Capricorn Caves and Keppel Dive and Water Sports who have been successful in the Access Project Grant (as part of the $5 Million Accessible Tourism Elevate Fund released last year by the State government).  The Access Project Grant provided funding of between $50,000 and $200,000 to 28 recipients totalling close to $4.45 million.  These projects will support the implementation of best practice accessibility, co-designed with people with disability and deliver tangible, high impact accessibility improvements.

Capricorn Caves has been successful in gaining funding to install wheelchair accessibility upgrades to the 60 metre cave walk as well as new kiosk toilets.

Keppel Dive and Water Sports has been successful to purchase a purpose-designed and built wheelchair-accessible vessel that can accommodate up to 2 wheelchair users, supported by adaptive equipment and technology including aquatic/beach access wheelchairs and access matting.
