Absolutely.! It may seem an impossible goal because of the terrain and access difficulty. But now, thanks to specialised services (such as what those we have here at Australia in Style) people with disabilities can tour and explore the majestic Blue Mountains.
Till recently there were very few services that cater to the needs of the disabled who want to travel. Thankfully more and more persons with disability can travel and experience the best now of what the world has to offer.
For example here at Australia in Style we have designed the perfect tour for wheelchair users. We have made the tours private and exclusive so that our clients can see and experience so much of the Blue Mountains (a UNESCO World Heritage- listed region).
A personalised experience for you
You can also choose to travel at your own pace (perhaps you don’t want to stay long at the local restaurant and instead witness the Australian wildlife up close and personal). Together we can prepare the perfect itinerary for you so you can get the most out of the experience.
We personalise and adapt the tour to suit your interests and personal space. We have wheelchair accessible vehicles with the ideal views and window heights (plus the vehicle is air conditioned and ultra comfortable) so . This means you can enjoy not just the destination but also the journey (excellent viewing from the wheelchair). There’s no rush because you can choose to stay longer at your preferred site (e.g. Three Sisters Rock formation, the picturesque Leura Village).
To give you the general idea and better imagine the entire experience, here’s a sample itinerary:
- Echo Point – the famous Three Sisters rock formation
- Blaxland Heritage Walk – wheelchair accessible ( optional)
- Cable Car over the Jamieson Valley ( optional)
- Featherdale Wildlife Park – up close and personal with Australian Native Animals
- Return Sydney
Is this right for you?
You’re welcome to contact us if you have any questions. We can also discuss your personal interests so together we can prepare a customised itinerary for you. After all it’s your call and we’re committed to empowering our clients to make their own choices when it comes to travel.
It’s all about removing the barriers so everyone can have a world-class experience (it’s hard to beat seeing and exploring the Blue Mountains). Well, visiting the Bondi Beach or the Sydney Opera House also provides an awesome experience. But seeing the Blue Mountains is beyond having the tour. For many of our clients they see it as an accomplishment. It’s also their opportunity to get up close and reunite with wildlife and nature.
Initially, many people with limited mobility may resist the opportunities for travel. There are unique challenges and there are also worries about the smoothness and the possibility of the experience. Here we understand those worries and concerns, which is why we give our best to anticipate all the challenges and focus on our customers’ unique requirements.
Physical disabilities may restrict people from certain opportunities but it’s not the case with travel. After all, travelling is more about the experience. And yes, you can choose your own experience. Specialised services are now available to make it all happen.
Can a disabled person travel to the Blue Mountains?
Yes. It’s not about the possibility. It’s actually all about the options you have right now. With our personalised and exclusive tours many of our clients have witnessed the beautiful nature and wildlife of the Blue Mountains.
It’s intimidating at first because of the rugged region and the steep cliffs. But it’s all worth it once you see and explore the, eucalyptus forests, the majestic valleys, Featherdale Wildlife Park, Aboriginal Cultural Centre and Three Sisters sandstone rock formation. Indeed, it has become an unforgettable experience and major accomplishment for many of our clients who choose to explore the world and nature.
Treasured memories are priceless and it’s the perfect time to explore and learn about the possibilities you still have. Our accessible tours and services will make it all possible for you and even empower yourself to take on new challenges and opportunities. Here at Australia in Style, we make travel accessible to people with disabilities and handicaps. And we all do that while still maintaining the style and awesome experience our clients seek throughout their lives.
