Beach wheelchairs

Yanchep beach wheelchair

The City of Wanneroo has two beach wheelchairs available for hire by members of the public at Quinns Beach and Yanchep Beach. These allow people with mobility difficulties to navigate across the sand and in some cases, even into the water. This helps to ensure that the City's beautiful beaches are accessible by and inclusive of the whole community.

Quinns Beach wheelchair

The beach wheelchair at Quinns Beach is known as the Beach Trekker. This can be booked across the summer season from 1 December 2021 to 31 March 2022 during the following times:

  • Monday to Friday // 8:30am – 12:30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday // 8:30am - 3:30pm
  • Public Holidays // 9:30am - 1:30pm

It is the hirers responsibility to ensure they book the chairs within the designated available times.

Once you have completed the required online form you will be provided with a confirmation email that you can print or keep on your phone. You will need to present this to the lifeguards on duty who will then supply you with the key to the storeroom that houses the Beach Trekker.
