We have published a set of nine mobility maps of the main shopping precinct areas in the municipality. These maps have been put together to help people with a disability or mobility difficulties navigate their way around our City.
The maps include features such as accessible parking, toilets, parks and other points of interest and have been designed to enhance community inclusion and participation for people with a disability.
If you have any questions or comments about the maps, contact our metroaccess officer on 9524 3333.
