We all wish that travel destinations were more accessible, and that planning our trips was easier. Tourism Tropical North Queensland is making both wishes come true, with a new accessibility widget on the Cairns & Great Barrier Reef destination website.
This will make all stages of planning your trip – dreaming, booking, and getting there – easier for people who live with disabilities.
“After launching an Accessibility Hub on the destination website late last year, Tourism Tropical North Queensland has added an accessibility widget to help people choose a user-friendly mode for their individual needs,” says Mark Olsen, CEO of Tourism Tropical North Queensland.
“The many viewing options include an ADHD-friendly mode which reduces distractions, and different visual impairment modes to adjust the website’s display.”
This is a fantastic way to make sure that your travel options are accessible and inclusive from the very beginning.
That’s not all that’s happening in Far North Queensland. Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and Cairns Airport have joined the Hidden Disability Sunflower Initiative, which will allow visitors with hidden disabilities to discreetly signal to trained staff when they might need additional time or support.
