Beach wheelchairs

Tauranga has two beach/all-terrain wheelchairs for hire throughout the year.

The versatile and comfortable wheelchair allows you to access most activities – it can even be immersed in water, so not only can you enjoy the beach but the ocean as well.

It can be used on its own or as a stroller with assistance. The push bar is easy to use and provides easy access through the soft sand and into the water.

Accessories include a harness, waist belt, armrests and headrest.

Booking the beach wheelchairs

The beach wheelchairs are free to book and use. 

Summer season bookings (1 December – 30 March)
