Eurobodalla hosts a number of fantastic inclusive facilities that aim to:
- provide a place where everyone can create and share happy experiences and memories, have fun and be challenged, regardless of age, culture or ability
- support the local economy by encouraging visitors
- invest in social outcomes by creating a vibrant inclusive play space that encourages active participation by all children.

Variety Inclusive Playground at Corrigans Reserve
Beach Road, Batehaven
The Variety Inclusive Playground at Corrigans Beach Reserve in Batehaven is the largest of 36 playgrounds in Eurobodalla. It is 3km south of Batemans Bay town centre, in a popular seaside location between the Batehaven shopping area and Corrigans Beach.
This inclusive playground is a partnership between Council and local charity The Bay Push, who had initially raised funds for the liberty swing and wheelchair access to the beach from the park. The project is being realised with funds from Variety, the local community, Council and Government grants.
Gundary Inclusive Playground
Campbell Street, Moruya
Gundary Inclusive Playground is located on the corner of Campbell and Evans Street in Moruya, part of the Gundary Regional Sports Park.
This playground was designed and constructed by Council's own Parks and Gardens team and includes a range of inclusive elements in an accessible environment.
Beach accessible wheelchairs
Batehaven, Malua Bay, Broulee and Moruya
Beach wheelchairs are available for free from the Surf Life Saving Clubs at Malua Bay (Batemans Bay SLSC), Broulee and Moruya. Ask the volunteer lifesavers on patrol at the beach if the chairs are available, or preferably, contact the life saving clubs in advance on the details below.
Local charity, The Bay Push, has also provided one child-sized and one adult-sized water wheelchair free for public use at Corrigans Beach.
The chairs need the assistance of a carer and are designed to float in calm sea waters.
Clyde View Caravan Park Manager Bob Carver has generously agreed to manage and store the chairs.
Enquiries for use of these chairs should be made to Clyde View Caravan Park on 4472 4224.
Batemans Bay Soldiers Club granted over $9000 to The Bay Push to provide the two water wheelchairs.
