“We see National Parks as a key pillar in the developing market of Accessible Tourism and as a critical element of the health and wellbeing of the world’s population regardless of an individual’s ability. 70% of tourists visit a National Park as part of their vacation.
We have worked with Parks Victoria to develop the Park Accessibility Evaluation Manual. It is our aim to create a network of park accessibility specialists to champion creating a range of inclusive outdoor experiences to cater for people of all abilities and also embrace the growing range of outdoor accessibility equipment.
Our mission is to be agents of change; to inspire people who have never traveled before to do so, and to inspire others to do more. To encourage all cultures of the world to see disability as an integral part of life, and to provide the motivation and tools to the tourism industry to allow them to create accessible environments that enable inclusion in an economically sustainable way.
This manual is made available to park managers for reference and as a guide for modifying or creating new open spaces. The manual is not to be made available from any other site or to be used for commercial purposes.”
