The Access All Abilities (AAA) Building is a universal-design, accessible accommodation facility. This facility is the first of its kind in the southern hemisphere. We're proud to enable greater access for a much broader section of our community to be able to enjoy the alpine environment. It provides a gateway to alpine experiences including, but not limited to, skiing (downhill and cross country), canoeing, mountain-biking, bush walking trails and overnight camping in the high country as well as the more traditional camp activities such as ropes courses and archery. We aspire to offer inclusive activities to be able to meet all abilities and mobilities.
The Access All Abilities accommodation, built in partnership with the Victoria State Government and Disabled Wintersport Australia, uses universal design to ensure ease of use among guests with vision impairment, hearing impairment, and mobility issues.
It is available to all Disabled Wintersport Australia members and the public, as a communal accommodation providing unprecedented access to the snow and alpine area. Find out more about our accommodation.
