Victoria Parks Trailrider all-terrain wheelchairs

TrailRider all-terrain wheelchairs are now available in a number of Victoria’s parks enabling visitors with mobility limitations to explore the great outdoors. The TrailRider allows visitors to access more rugged walking trails not otherwise accessible with conventional wheelchairs.

Local staff can provide expert advice on the best routes for chairs, so with the help of chair operators you can experience Victoria’s parks like never before. A minimum of two chair operators (known as Sherpas) are required to operate the chair.

TrailRiders have adjustable seating and supports, making them suitable for adults and children with varying abilities. Motorised chairs are available at some locations allowing visitors to explore steeper and longer trails.

The TrailRiders are free to use, but please book in advance to avoid disappointment. Users are required to bring a helmet and undertake a chair induction. The chairs easily disassemble and fit in the back of most medium sized SUVs.

Sherpa Assistance

Parks Victoria has developed a ‘Sherpa Volunteer program to assist you to explore parks in the All terrain TrailRider wheelchairs, if you require extra support.

A Volunteer Sherpa is a trained operator to push and pull the TrailRider chair provided for any visitors using the chair. Volunteer Sherpas are available at both the Dandenong Ranges and Grampians National Parks.
