Thank you for visiting Wheelie Accessible Adventures. We are all about accessible tourism!. Our mission is to provide wheelchair access travel information, accessible reviews and a personalised travel booking service for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility..
Wheelie Accessible Adventures first started out as a review site on our own accessible adventures. But we have now expanded into helping other wheelchair users book and plan their own accessible travel adventures.
We understand from our own experiences that it isn’t always easy getting out and about and visiting new places when you are in a wheelchair. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon to run into obstacles along the way due to access issues. At Wheelie Accessible Adventures, we aim to help wheelchair users minimise these obstacles by providing a platform dedicated to wheelchair accessible attractions, activities, accommodation, transport and general wheelchair accessibility information around Australia.

We understand sometimes you can not just get up and go when you are in a wheelchair or have limited mobility and that its important to plan ahead to ensure your needs are met. This can be a long process, and many hours can go into researching to ensure accessibility.
At Wheelie Accessible Adventures, we specialise in accessible tourism and only list accessible tourism products, packages and services through our booking service and provide access information that is useful to you, all in one place.
All our wheelchair access reviews are written from a wheelchair users prospective to help other wheelchair users gain information to see if it suits their access needs and to assist them on their own journey..
When booking and planning your accessible travel plans with us, your access needs and requirements are a priority to ensure you have the best time possible with limited obstacles. We are partnered with a number of wheelchair accessible hotels, apartment and other properties across Australia apart of our accessible accommodation booking service to help you book accommodation that suits your needs. We specialise in wheelchair accessible attractions, activities, experiences, accommodation and custom holiday/getaway packages created for individual access needs . At Wheelie Accessible Adventures, we understand disability and the importance of accessibility and look forward to helping you on your next accessible adventure.
Hi. My name is Jo, and I live in Brisbane, Australia.
I started using a wheelchair around age 6 after I was diagnosed with a rare muscle disease called Juvenile Dermatomyositis. I now use an electric wheelchair full time.
I am an Artist. I love to paint nature, including landscapes and animals.
I am passionate about equality and believe access should be available to all. My love for travelling, visiting new places and getting out and about has led me to complete qualifications in Travel and Tourism. I specialise in accessible tourism and I hope my knowledge gained from my qualifications and experience will benefit those with mobility issues wishing to travel and visit new places. By sharing my knowledge and providing wheelchair access reviews on Wheelie Accessible Adventures, I hope to help others on their next Wheelie Accessible Adventure.

Hi everyone, my name is Jess and I’m 26 years old and live on the Gold Coast, QLD with my family and dog Gypsy. I have cerebral palsy so I use a head switch to my communication device to talk. On a daily basis I use my electric wheelchair but sometimes still use my manual chair if the place were going isn’t suitable to take my electric wheelchair. I have support people some days and my mum and husband help to support me around that.
I am the middle child; I have an older sister and a younger brother who both live me along with my mum and my husband. My husband and I have just celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary and 10 years together. We recently took a 10 day trip to Sydney to celebrate which I am going to do my first blog on. We built our own home in 2018 which I got to make the decisions on and adjust things to suit my needs. From choosing the tiles to the taps it was a lengthy process but definitely worthwhile. I want to share my experiences if it can help other people or families in similar positions to mine.
Hi everyone, I’m Simon and live in Geelong, Victoria with my husband and fur babies.
I’m a late blooming wheelchair user despite having spina bifida since birth. I’ve experienced most of my life as an ambulant traveller with some limitations, but now navigating travel and adventures as a full-time wheelchair user. I often travel solo and love taking the time to photograph new environments as I explore them. I regularly travel to attend training and learning opportunities in my work as a psychologist, as well as travelling in my spare time just for the adventure.
I’ve had brilliant experiences and near disasters in my travels as a wheelchair user. I look forward to bringing you along with me as we explore the world on wheels.
