Brisbane Times – Wheelchairs at Woodford

People using wheelchairs and walking frames are struggling to push through the main gravel roads here at the festival.

But the rest of the festival’s disability access has drawn praise from the wheelchair-bound festivalgoers we spoke to.

“They’re wonderful with the disability camping ground, but the gravel just isn’t doing it,” said Branka Pupovac, a mother who requires a wheelchair.

Festival head of disability access Karin Kirk said she was aware of the gravel issues.

“There are a few infrastructure things that they (organisers) said would take quite a while to change,” she said.

“We run a disabled-friendly ground and we are working to provide the comforts they need.”
