Toilets and change rooms
Are accessible toilets and toilets for ambulant people readily available?
Provide a range of toilets including standard, unisex accessible and toilets for ambulant people. One wheelchair-accessible toilet per ten standard toilets is best practice.
Accessible toilets are required to provide enough space to accommodate a wheelchair user and assistance person with sufficient turning circle as per Australian Standard 1428.1, and with doors opening outwards. The wash basin, mirror and grab rails need to be at a height accessible for wheelchair or mobility aid users.
Accessible toilets should be available outside the venue, at easily accessed points in the venue and near catering.
Portaloos will need to be hired if accessible toilets are not available. The Marveloo and Placeable Pods are examples of portable Changing Places facilities available for hire for events and festivals.
