What are we doing?

Planning for a more inclusive Port Phillip

Our Accessibility Action Plan 2023-2025 reflects our commitment to improving the participation and inclusion of people with disability.  It outlines the actions we will take over the next three years to make Port Phillip a more inclusive place to live, work and play.

Making our beaches more accessible

You can access beach equipment at the Port Melbourne Life Saving Club, St Kilda Life Saving Club and Life Saving Victoria. This equipment removes some of the barriers that may prevent you from enjoying our beaches.

You can find your nearest accessible facility like beaches, parking, public toilets, showers and community bus stops by visiting our Accessibility Map. Type in your address to see what is near you.

Accessible parking

You can apply for an accessible parking permit if you have impaired mobility.

Carer information hub
