Beach accessibility survey

Beach accessibility

Are you over the age of 65?!

If you are aged 65 years or older and/or live with a disability or mobility limitation, we invite you to take part in a survey about beach accessibility in Australia.

The purpose of the project is to determine the benefits, barriers, and facilitators of beach access for older adults and people living with a disability or mobility limitation. Information collected will provide key data to understand your diversity, physical activity levels and beach usage patterns, and enable the identification of barriers and facilitators to both travelling to the beach and accessing the beach and surrounds. This information will enable us to identify how local beach access may be improved to promote physical activity and improved health and wellbeing.

You are invited to complete the survey if you are aged 65 years or older and/or have a disability or mobility limitation and currently access or want to access patrolled beaches in Australia.

You may complete the survey online, or over the telephone.
