Burleigh Beach Accessibility Guide
At Gold Coast Tourist Parks we are committed to creating extraordinary holiday experiences for everyday people. We aim to welcome guests with the highest level of customer service and hospitality, regardless of their individual needs.
We have two designated accessible parking spaces out the front of reception, for ease of check-in or visiting the reception/kiosk. These uncovered car spaces are marked with an “NP” and are conveniently located near the ramp access leading to the door.
A ramp located adjacent to the parking area provides easy access to reception via an automatic entry door. There is sufficient space for mobility both indoors and outside the office. Outdoor undercover seating is available. Reception hours are 8am to 6pm Monday-Friday and 9am to 5pm Saturday-Sunday, with a resident manager available for emergencies after hours.
For social gatherings and activities, guests may relax in the recreation room. Comfortable lounge seating, chairs, tables, pool table, arcade games and television are available at this indoor space. Accessible features include a clear accessible path, wide entrance-way, flat level surface and spacious layout. An outdoor barbeque facility is centrally located in the park grounds. Accessible pathways lead guests to a level area suitable for wheelchairs and prams. This is the perfect venue to share in a barbeque meal with family and friends, or soak up the atmosphere of the park whilst watching those at play on the grassed area.
Getting around the Park
Mobility is made easy throughout the park grounds via the internal road network and pathways leading to facilities. Park roadways are suitable for users of wheelchairs, prams and mobility scooters. At the boomgate entrance to the Park, a pathway with a smooth, level surface, provides safe access to the Park grounds.
Some camping sites have 100mm curved guttering but we also have sites with no guttering. Guests to please check with reception when making a booking.
