Push Adventures is passionate about community-building and education around accessible tourism. Through building awareness and working directly with the tourism industry, we aim to improve the traveller experience and also drive more tourism across Australia.
Travellers come with a range of needs, human diversity is what makes us individuals! Do you as a tourism operator cater for diversity across ages and abilities? Are you welcoming to a wide range of guests? Can everyone participate in your facility or service? How accessible is your business?
So what is good access? Good access is about quality service. It’s about making it easier for people to find you, for people to access your premises and move around, and for people to participate in the experiences you offer. It’s about providing a high level of customer service through staff interactions and the information you provide.
