The Bright Sports Centre offers a hoist for people with a disability. It enables them to access the only year-round heated swimming pool in the Alpine Shire.
Please contact the Bright Sports Centre should you wish to enquire about the hoist.
A motorised TrailRider all-terrain wheelchair is now available free of charge from YMCA Howmans Gap Alpine Centre at Falls Creek enabling visitors with mobility limitations to explore the great outdoors. The TrailRider allows people to access more rugged walking trails not otherwise accessible with conventional wheelchairs.
The TrailRider has adjustable seating and supports, making it suitable for adults and children with varying abilities.
It assembles easily and fits into the back of a station wagon, all-wheel drive or large sedan. You must wear a helmet in the chair - you can bring your own, or borrow one from the YMCA.
Please book in advance or ask for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 5758 3223.
