Between September 2019 and May 2020, Moreton Bay Regional Council is trialling the Accessible Beaches initiative at Woorim Beach on Bribie Island in partnership with Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club.
30 metres of beach matting has been installed at the main beach entrance (Access Point 12), just north of the Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club. This matting provides access to the soft sand at Woorim Beach, just above the level of the highest astronomical tide. This length of matting has been installed on a permanent basis for the duration of this trial. Council is also trialling the installation of 10 metres of matting at the beach access point on Fifth Avenue.
Two beach wheelchairs are available for free hire through the Bribie Island Surf Lifesaving Club on weekends and public holidays for the duration of this trial.
