Permanent beach matting
Permanent beach matting is located near the swimming enclosure at Broadwater Parklands. The matting connects with the main pathway.
Please note that the matting at this location, may not reach the hard sand – depending on the tide.
The matting is available for use anytime.
There is a Changing Places toilet facility in the parklands (with height adjustable change bench, ceiling tracking hoist, shower, wide enough door, and space inside for a beach wheelchair), approximately 150 metres north of the Rockpools (across from Cafe Catalina/the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre).
Please bring your own sling to use the Changing Places toilet facility.
This toilet can only be accessed by using a Master Locksmiths Access Key (MLAK). To find out about eligibility and apply for a key see our Changing Places toilet page.
Floating pontoon and walkway
There is a floating pontoon and walkway in the parklands, which has been designed to provide access for everyone.
Note: the exact gradient of the walkway is subject to the tide.
