Location
Breathtaking ocean views, luxurious and spacious accommodation, welcoming staff and plenty of entertainment – let the resort help you kick back, relax and reconnect. The local council is committed to making the precinct 100 percent wheelchair friendly. There have been recent upgrades to the beach facilities and surf lifesaving club (including a lift, adult change table and hoist) as well as the area directly in front of the resort which now has accessible toilets and paths. Local businesses are also committed to making the Collaroy precinct wheelchair friendly and have adapted their shops, restaurants and cafes where necessary. There are a range of cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops within short distance of the resort that are completely accessible.

Access
The resort aims to provide an environment of refreshment and inspiration for guests and their families, while promoting social integration, activity and support. This holistic approach aims to help people living with spinal cord injury to be happier, healthier and prepared to tackle the next big thing in their life. This might involve returning to school, study or work after their injury, maintaining social networks or starting a family.

Rooms are purpose-built and can be altered with a range of inclusions to fit varied needs, and accommodations feature assistive technology, home automation, adaptive equipment, and living aids. Beds and sinks have dynamic height, some rooms include adapted balconies, and all rooms feature a built-in ceiling hoist.

Accommodation
The resort has 17 fully accessible rooms and suites. Rooms either look out onto manicured gardens and grounds, or have panoramic views of Collaroy Beach and out to the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Rooms can be customized by the staff to suit your individual needs. Rooms come with an equipped kitchen, fridge, and freezer.

Facilities
The resort features specialist support staff, meaning there’s always someone available to help you or your family member over the course of your stay including occupational therapists, clinical nurse educators, exercise physiologists, guest attendants and specialist vocational consultants. Hours with guest attendants can be purchased, in case you or your family member need some extra help.

The gym is equipped with leading Human Underarm Resistance (HUR) technology, providing a safer, effective, more independent exercise option for wheelchair and non-wheelchair users. Built with advanced air pressure technology and a U-shape design, the HUR machines lower joint pressure, support assistive training and allow for ease of adjustments.

The resort offers a multi-purpose recreation lounge with full length glass sliding doors connecting the indoor recreation room with an expansive north-facing terrace. This includes a BBQ and dining space for guests to enjoy anytime. The recreation room also features a large 2-screen television display, table tennis and pool tables, a video game console, a selection of books, movies and board games, and a child-height accessible dollhouse.

The guest lounge is a quiet and casual open space for relaxation with direct access to an outdoor balcony also overlooking Collaroy Beach and the Pacific Ocean. There is a baby grand piano available to play or you may enjoy a quiet game of chess or a chat with family and other guests.

A dedicated therapy room is available on-site, allowing guests to indulge in an array of health and wellness services with specialist support staff in peaceful, private environment.
