TrailRider all-terrain wheelchairs are available at Grampians National Park enabling visitors with mobility limitations to explore the great outdoors.
The TrailRider allows visitors to access more rugged walking trails not otherwise accessible with conventional wheelchairs. A minimum of two chair operators (known as TrailRider Volunteers) are required to operate the chair.
Parks Victoria are providing TrailRider activities for visitors to visit various locations around Grampians National Park. A Park Ranger will be present at each activity to assist visitors with the use of the TrailRider.
Each activity will have two TrailRiders available with TrailRider Volunteers or a Ranger to assist visitors.
