People of all abilities can now enjoy overnight stays at Elliott Heads Holiday Park in an all-new accessible family cabin.
Situated at 1 Lihs Street the cabin has been designed by Bundaberg Regional Council to provide visitors with easy access and mobility and features spacious rooms, inclined surfaces, grabrails, ramps and more.
The villa will be officially opened to the public on Wednesday, 20 October at 11am at a special community event.
Mayor Jack Dempsey said the project was part of Council's goal in ensuring the region was both inclusive and accessible.
“It's so important to continue to find ways to connect our community and enhance our quality lifestyle,” he said.
“The accessible family cabin is situated at Elliott Heads Holiday Park which provides ocean-front living at one of the region's most beautiful beaches.
“With enough room for a family to stay comfortably and plenty of features that allow people of all abilities to enjoy their stay, this cabin is a fantastic addition to an amazing destination.”
The cabin has been built to accommodate people who use mobility devices and features compliant doors, bathroom fittings, light switches and power points.
The kitchen features space under the benches to allow for wheelchair access and the room has been designed for full manoeuvrability.
There is also a threshold ramp to the cabin, compliant car park with a set-down section and accessible ramp to the cabin entrance.
Mayor Dempsey said along with the accessible family cabin, the park would open three more cabins on site in the near future.
“This is part of Council's five-year masterplan to bring the holiday park up to modern standards and provide more accommodation for the increasing number of guests in the area,” he said.
The project has received support through the State Government's COVID Works for Queensland program.
