Our Getaway Gold Coast is featured in a new Inclusive Tourism guide published by the Queensland Government.

The guide is designed to help grow Queensland’s accessible tourism market and break down barriers preventing people with disability from enjoying a holiday. It is aimed at the tourism sector and seeks to increase the sector’s knowledge about accessibility and legal obligations on inclusiveness.

Disability Services Minister Coralee O’Rourke commented at the launch:

“Any changes we can make within the tourism industry can help people with disability to experience travel in a more meaningful way, without the experience being overshadowed by barriers.

“As a state we need to roll out the welcome mat for people of all abilities and ages, and create a unique tourism experience that is accessible, inclusive and benefits both operators and visitors. Mrs O’Rourke said.

Our Getaway Gold Coast is featured in the guide as a great example of an inclusive initiative already in the market. The house at Labrador provides accommodation for people of all ages with a disability. It includes technology and design features to enable full accessibility and extensive support for every guest.

Visitors can spend time with friends and family in a safe, secure and relaxing environment. Guests have the option of bringing their own support staff with them or arranging additional care at the time of booking. The house itself has a flexible layout allowing a choice of a 2-bed apartment, larger 4-bed option or, for bigger groups, the entire 6-bed home is available.
