Access for all - Understanding the opportunity for Accessible Tourism in South Australia

Ecotourism Stream, supported by the Department for Environment & Water

Tourism Research Australia estimates that 1.3 million people are in the market for accessible options for day trips and overnight stays in Australia. With a focus on enhancing the tourism experience for people with disabilities and their travel companions, this workshop will highlight the accessibility options available in South Australian parks and the nearby businesses plus provide practical advice for operators on how to make your tourism business inclusive and accessible.
