This new Changing Place provides safe and fully accessible toilet and change facilities for people with a disability who need space and assistance to use the bathroom whilst out enjoying the many experiences the park offers to visitors. It is one of over 100 similar facilities now available across Australia and 31 in Western Australia.

Forming part of existing toilet facilities, the Changing Place is located next to the popular adventure play and picnic area at the Saw Avenue Picnic Area, with ACROD parking located in the adjacent Kulbardi Carpark. The Saw Avenue Picnic Area is also designed to be accessible for children and adults with disabilities.

The Changing Place includes an electronically operated ceiling hoist and change table and an automatic door secured with an MLAK key. This provides access only to eligible users and their carers, ensuring the facilities are safe and clean for those who need them.
