Accessible Tourism Resource Kit

Front cover of the accessible tourism guide showing hot air ballooning over the city.The Business Victoria website has a sub-section on accessible tourism. Unfortunately it is listed as separate from other aspects of tourism such as starting up a tourism business. Nevertheless, the Accessible Tourism Resource Kit has some useful information for existing businesses in the sector.

Similarly to other guides on accessible and inclusive tourism the Tourism Accessibility Resource Kit covers:

      • Discover what you are missing
      • Explore your local area
      • Make low cost changes
      • Assess your building and facilities
      • Describe your business
      • Promote your business.

Editor’s comment: The PDF version of the Kit has a very light font – I fail to understand why it is considered a good design idea. By comparison, the accessible Word version has good text contrast. 

The City of Melbourne has a website section with access information, for recreation, entertainment and cultural venues. Shopping, cafes, exhibitions, playgrounds, toilets, sport and recreation are covered in detail. There is also a link to a Melbourne mobility map.  

There are more guides in the travel and tourism section of this website.
