Whiteman Park is proud of its facilities for people with disabilities.
We have two standard wheelchairs available to borrow from the Visitor Information Centre from 10.00am–4.00pm on weekends, and 10.00am - 3.00pm weekdays (available outside these hours by prior arrangement).
Many of Whiteman Park's attractions also participate in the Companion Card program. Free entry is available for carers when the card is shown at Caversham Wildlife Park and the Motor Museum of WA. Discounted fares are given to both carer and Companion Card holder for tram rides and vintage train rides upon presentation of the card.
The Village shops and toilets are accessible by wheelchair and there are ramps at the entrance to all buildings.
Want to go on a train ride? Bennett Brook Railway have a dedicated train carriage they constructed to enable visitors in wheelchairs to enjoy the vintage train rides around the Park.
For those visiting Pia's Place, our all-abilities playspace at Mussel Pool East, or who are simply wanting to enjoy a tram ride, you can catch a heritage electric tram* from the Village, as both the tram stops at the Visitor Information Centre and at Pia's Place, have accessible platforms. Please note, however, that not all of the trams in the fleet are accessible by wheelchair due to their historical nature.
A number of Whiteman Park's venue hire facilities are disability and mobility access friendly. If you are in need of an easy-access shelter, choose from the list below when booking. These shelters have paths or paving up to the edge of the shelter, affording easier access for those with mobility issues.
