DIY all terrain chair – make your own beach wheelchair!

I recently just trialled a beach wheelchair when on holidays up the coast.
I was so impressed with how smooth it was on the sand.

I came across this website on one of the FB pages last week and thought it would be a great idea for families who travel a lot or were very outdoorsy.
You can hire them at some beaches, but you should ring ahead to make sure its available, and they aren’t really suitable for younger kids or someone who needs more support.
You could use this kit to convert something more comfortable into your own beach wheelchair.

Beach time! swim nappies, sun shade + beach wheelchair

As my daughter is getting bigger we are finding it harder for her to access the beach. So my search for beach wheelchairs started a few weeks ago.
Some lifesaving clubs have them for you to use. Northcott also have them for hire.

The following is a list of places where they can be either borrowed for free or for a gold coin donation.



I love these swim nappies as they go up to a size 4, and my daughter is a size 6 and still fit in them. Easy to get on with snaps on one side.
You can also get the matching tops.
AND they’re Australian!



The Sunny Jim Shade is my favourite, looks much funkier than the boring old tents I’ve seen at the beach this summer.
