Explore the beaches and trails of the Fleurieu Coast with our all-terrain and beach wheelchairs.

TrailRider

TrailRider overlooking Backstairs Passage at Deep Creek Conservation ParkThe TrailRider all-terrain wheelchair allows people with limited mobility to explore the diverse trails of the Fleurieu Coast. The one-wheeled chair is a cross between a wheelbarrow and sedan chair. The TrailRider requires a minimum of two reasonably fit people (one at each end of the chair).

The TrailRider can be used on a number of different walking tracks and in a variety of locations, including the stunning Deep Creek Conservation Park. You will need two or four fit helpers, depending on the trails you wish to travel and the strength and level of fitness of your helpers. The chair is motorised, making it easier to explore some steeper and longer trails.

Deep Creek Conservation Park has released a map of suggested trails within the Park. Our friendly Visitor Centre staff can provide information and maps on other trails.

Chair users are required to bring a bike helmet and undertake a chair induction via short video prior to use. It weighs 25kg, and requires two people to load it safely. It folds down to a size of 172 cm x 82 cm x 61 cm, and will fit in the back of most medium sized SUVs.

The chair is free to hire for up to three days, and bookings are essential to avoid disappointment. To book, phone the Fleurieu Coast Visitor Centre on 08 8558 0240 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We are extremely grateful for the generous support of Conservation Council SA, from whom the wheelchair is on extended loan.

Sincere thanks also to Parks Victoria for allowing access to their instructional videos. It is a condition of hire that these videos are viewed at the collection point prior to use of the TrailRider.
