Tweed Shire Beach Wheel Chairs

A FreeWheeler is a wheelchair with soft balloon tyres that roll easily over sand and even into low waves.

To pre-book an available FreeWheeler, call Community Services on (07) 5569 3110 or email communityservices@tweed.nsw.gov.au.

It can be borrowed for use by a support person for a person aged 5 up with a disability for a great day at the beach with family and friends – and they’re free of charge.

Tweed Shire Council has four beach wheel chairs available for use. They are located at the following locations:

  • Fingal Head Beach
  • Cabarita Beach
  • Tweed Heads; and
  • Pottsville

The Fingal Head and Cabarita chairs have a specific region that they are permitted to be used in and under no circumstances can the chairs be removed from that area or transported elsewhere.

The Tweed Heads chair may be transported for use at any Tweed Coast beach.

The hirer is responsible for all transportation arrangements and payment of the refundable deposit for this chair. At the time of hire, the user / family member / care giver is required to read and agree to the terms of use, sign a lease agreement and provide identification. The terms of use are guidelines to ensure that the person using the chair is kept safe at all times.

Subsidised Aquatic Centre membership (subject to conditions) are available.
