More Activities with Accessible Parking in Perth

Finding suitable parking can be half the challenge when it comes to a fun day out.

Fortunately, we have a list of our five favourite activities with accessible parking in Perth – so you can find the perfect activity, without worrying about where to park.

1. Visit Gallery 09 @ AGWA (Perth City)

AGWA (Art Gallery of Western Australia) has brilliant activities and exhibitions for the whole family, but Gallery 09 is particularly special. 

Gallery 09 offers experiences to learn through participation, inviting audiences of all ages and abilities to contribute and engage. Each of the exhibitions are installed for a full year and have multiple entry points to cater for different accessibility needs including wheelchair use. 

The current ‘Forecast’ exhibition, running until February 2025, also has a daily quiet hour for those who may need or prefer lower sensory environments. 

AGWA’s facilities – whether you head to Gallery 09 or explore the rest of the exhibits – are designed to make art accessible to everyone. Their sensory and access map shows details for wheelchair access as well as how loud or crowded certain areas typically are, making navigation and enjoyment much easier.

Accessibility at AGWA:

  • Accessibility map
  • Level flooring and elevators between floors
  • Manual wheelchairs or an electric buggy are available for use (book ahead to ensure availability)
  • ACROD parking available at the Cultural Centre car park (Roe St), or the State Library car park (Francis St). Details available through the City of Perth.

2. Watch at Event Cinemas

Perfect for a rainy day as we come into winter…

While each venue will have a different layout, Event Cinemas all have disability parking available. The theatres themselves have wheelchair spaces with companion seating, as well as chairs that are accessible by wheelchair. 

You can remain in your wheelchair if there is a wheelchair accessible space available; just let a staff member know you would like to do this so they can remove the seat in the space.

Locations in Perth include Innaloo, Morley, and Whitfords.

Here’s something to make visiting the cinema even better – you can access special e-Vouchers through the Entertainment App! Wheels for Hope has a fundraiser through Entertainment, so you can support our mission and get a discount on stacks of activities around Perth.

To access, sign up via our fundraiser page. Using our link allows Wheels for Hope to receive a small commission from your Entertainment membership, which is another way to help keep the wheels spinning.

3. Explore Kwinana Adventure Park (Kwinana)

With wheelchair friendly parking available right at the main gate (just off Walgreen Crescent), it’s easy to get to this adventure playland for all abilities. Kwinana Adventure Park has sensory play and interactive elements, including the fully wheelchair accessible tree maze. 

The wheelchair friendly splash pad is perfect to keep the kiddos cool on warm days. It’s open for interaction year-round, designed so you only get wet if you want to. The sand play area has fully accessible elements for creative play, and the action play area has a variety of swings suitable for all abilities.

4. Delve into WA Shipwrecks Museum (Fremantle)

Continue down from the main drag of Fremantle towards Bathers Beach, and you will find the internationally-recognised WA Shipwrecks Museum on Cliff Street. Once built to store supplies for the Swan River colony, the site is now a gallery dedicated to Western Australia’s treacherous coastline. You can also request special tours like the Tactile Tour or the Objects and Memories tour.

ACROD parking is available at the nearby Wilsons carpark, or there are two bays in front of the museum and one bay on Slip Street. As with any venue it is first in first served, so parking may be trickier during busy periods like school holidays.

Accessibility at Shipwrecks Museum:

  • ACROD parking available
  • Drop off bay in front of Museum
  • Ramp and lift available
  • Automatic doors to galleries
  • One wheelchair available for use (call ahead to check availability)
  • Level path to entrance with self-opening doors
  • Unisex disability access toilets on ground floor

5. Savour at Wheelchair Accessible Cafés 

Whether you’re a long mac lover or just wanting a sweet treat, Perth’s cafés have a lot to offer with delicious food and smooth, silky coffee – or maybe a fluffy babyccino, if the kids are coming along. For wheelchair friendly brunch options, we have our eye on these java joints with accessible parking:

Laneway Seven (Ellenbrook)

ACROD parking is available at the back of the cafe, and the flat entry makes it all too easy to sneak into this neighbourhood fave. Enjoy their table service and choose from a delicious menu. Laneway Seven also has an accessible bathroom at the back. You can even call ahead to order takeaways.

Chinta Café (North Perth)

Beautiful South East Asian flavours in a tropical setting – you may want to make a reservation ahead of time for Chinta, as this popular place can get very busy. For a hint of Bali luxury on a mere coffee budget, you can’t go past this North Perth gem. There is ACROD parking available out front and a level entry, with an accessible bathroom inside.

Pitcher and Iron (Subiaco)

Sample from their frankly impressive range of waffles and you’ll never be able to go anywhere else – Pitcher and Iron is a busy city spot where bookings are recommended. Undercover ACROD parking is nearby with a flat paved entry to the venue, and an accessible bathroom is just outside (ask staff for the key).
