Improve accessibility

Tourism Victoria, with the support from the Office for Disability, Department of Human Services, has released Accessible tourism: it’s your business, an accessibility resource kit to raise awareness and support the Victorian tourism industry to become more accessible and inclusive. Find out more.

Council has developed a practical guide to help make all events more accessible for people with a disability and for frail, older people. Read the Accessible Events Guide(PDF, 783KB). It gives information and guidance on ‘best practice’ that will open up a section of your potential market that is often overlooked and will help you to meet existing legal responsibilities.

Events come in different sizes and cover a wide range of activities. It may be a small community fete, consultation, forum or a large music festival. Whatever size, they have common issues including planning, safety, insurance, contingency planning, marketing and disability access.
