Hire a beach wheelchair that can be easily pushed over sandy and rough terrain by one person. Chairs are free to hire (though a donation is welcomed), there is one adult and one child chair available.
North Beach Surf Club also has an accessibility mat that is free to hire. This is a great way for people with wheelchairs, prams and mobility issues to get closer to the water's edge. Drop into the Surf Club to arrange use.
All of the walking tracks have different rules around dogs depending on the season or protected wildlife. Check in the individual walking pages for information.
In most seasons, dogs can be walked under effective control on the beaches. In summer however, dogs are prohibited within a certain distance of the Surf Life Saving Clubs.
If you are on a walk that crosses the beach over summer, you must put your dog on a short leash for this section. Find out more information from the dog bylaw map.
There are public toilets available near the Surf Lifesaving Clubs, at the pier and in all local parks and reserves in the area.
South Brighton Domain has a free barbeque available to use as well as bookable picnic space.
