The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"Fitzroy Island staff are straight forward about accessibility on the island. The resort has fantastic accessible accommodation but the rest of the island is not wheelchair friendly.
"The resort building has easy access with wooden walkways connecting buildings and lift access to the accommodation.
The suite accommodation is spacious and well equipped for guests staying overnight or for extended periods with a full kitchen."
"The bathroom looks spacious with good circulation space for wheelchair users, a hand-held shower, flip-down shower seat, lever taps and grab rails throughout.
All amenities are at lowered height."
"Due to their compact nature I will describe these as access friendly. These are suited to someone with mobility as direct transfers from a wheelchair to the bed wouldn’t be possible."
"Although the bungalows are compact, the bathroom is spacious with good accessible features including a flip-down shower bench, hand-held shower and grab rails.
The toilet is equipped with a backrest, the hand basin is wheelchair accessible and lever taps are fitted to the shower and basin."
"Breakfast is served in Zephr Restaurant which is accessible.Other accessibility information:
