School exams for the kids are over, and that means one thing: Vacations. Where should you to go for that waterfall, street food, night market, resort and theme park adventure? If you haven’t finalised your trips yet, it’s time to buy that travel guide and fire up Google Maps for a bit of itinerary planning.
Here’s some ideas and tips to start you off on your plans:
1. Sydney, Gold Coast and Tasmania in Australia
Australia is relatively well-designed for wheelchair users. For one thing, it’s one of few countries that has an official accessible public toilet map.
If you’re looking for a city getaway, Sydney should be your first choice: you can roll right into sunset drinks and dinner at The Opera Bar at the iconic Sydney Opera House, or hit the shops while admiring the city’s historic architecture at Queen Victoria Building. For a rollercoaster of a time, head to Gold Coast, where Warner Brothers’ Movie World and Dracula’s Cabaret Restaurant are located – your heart rate is bound to spike with Dracula’s costumed waiters, comedy, rock, puppetry and horror.
For a more laidback time filled with fresh experiences, Tasmania’s the island. Get up close to Mount Field National Park’s three-tier waterfalls, Russell Falls; visit a farmer’s market for the island’s famed fresh produce; and check into a bed and breakfast that serves said produce.
