Young, ambitious and using a wheelchair, we spent 3 months travelling through Europe, the trip of a lifetime on a shoestring budget! Utilising the public train network and backpacking as much as possible, we encountered just about every physical and attitudinal barrier a wheelchair user could imagine. However optimism, resilience and a sense of humour kept us going and we shared in some of the most amazing experiences of our lives. Shortly after returning home we came to the realisation that these hurdles exist right here in South Australia and we now have the determination, means and ability to make a positive impact on the SA tourism industry.
We aren’t expecting all facilities to be 100% inclusive for everyone, but we want to help you to identify and promote how your business already caters for a range of people, providing an inclusive tourism experience. Inclusive tourism is a significant industry sector and by taking steps to be more inclusive you’ll appeal to a wider range of tourists. We can help you to understand how attitudinal behaviours have an impact. How providing detailed visitor information on your website and throughout your marketing materials can attract a wider audience. And how considering small changes to design and facilities can assist in an inclusive experience for travellers of varying abilities.
