Wheelchair and pram accessibility

The Oceanview track offers wheelchair and pram assisted access. Tours can be conducted only along this track if requested in advance.

The Rainforest circuit is not accessible by wheelchairs or prams.

Difficulty

The Oceanview track makes its way along the coastline leading from Tallebudgera Creek around to Burleigh Point. Your tour can be limited to this track on request.

The track is 1.2km one-way and a 'Grade 2' walk, meaning that the track is a hardened surface with gentle hill sections and occasional steps. No bushwalking experience is required and wheelchair assisted and pram assisted access is possible.

For the full tour experience, guides will also take you up and over the mountain via the Rainforest circuit. This route combined with the Oceanview track is approximately a 2km long return trip and a 'Grade 3' walk, meaning tracks have short, steep hill sections, a rough surface and many steps. It is suitable for most ages and fitness levels however some bushwalking experience is recommended.

What to bring

We recommend:

  • flat shoes suitable for walking
  • a hat
  • sunscreen
  • a bottle of water

You may want to bring swimming attire and towels for a swim at the picturesque Tallebudgera Creek after the tour. A lifeguard-patrolled beach is located a short walk from the centre.
