Useful wheelie links

Some links I find useful or amusing. You might too!

As always, even though the site says it is accessible it still best to check unless you’re feeling adventurous.

This is a state government site which has lots of info about disability access.

This was put together by Martin Heng. a wheelie of course; I’ve met him, seems an okay bloke.
It comes as a free PDF that you can download.

This is a new site (2017). If you hover over the little building symbol on the top right and select an option you get a whole lot of filters on the left. Right near the bottom you can select wheelchair access.

Not a lot going on here but it might get better.

Evolution wheelchair accessible caravan
This mob make caravans in Melbourne. It looks a bit tight inside of course but the toilet shower set up looks very good. I used to have a wheelchair accessible campervan in Europe so I know a bit about this.
It might be a bit tricky for a power wheelchair user.I think they’re are about $60,000.

This bloke is a wheelie who has done some fun things like flying a plane. He has a blog describing stuff. He is also a “motivational speaker” for those of you in need of motivation.
He flew to Birdsville in a light plane like me, but unlike Dave, I didn’t pilot it!
I hope he doesn’t mind my using a photo from his website.
