Advocates for Inclusive Tourism
Making the World Accessible for All
Travability was formed in 2007.
Initially Travability was set up as a vehicle to publish accessible travel information via its web site travability.travel. Today, Travability is a part of a worldwide group who’s mission is to create equality in accessibility in the hospitality and travel industries.
Our mission is to be agents of change; to inspire people who have never traveled before to do so, and to inspire others to do more. To encourage all cultures of the world to see disability as an integral part of life, and to provide the motivation and tools to the tourism industry to allow them to create accessible environments that enable inclusion in an economically sustainable way.

A must see for anyone visiting Florida is the Kennedy Space Center. Lying on the Space Coast it is a 35 minute drive east of Orlando or a three and a half hour drive north of Miami on the I95. Kennedy Space Center is synonymous with man's exploration of space from the early Mercury and Gemini mission, the Apollo Moon landings and the Space shuttle missions now in their final phases.The Kennedy Space Center offers travellers with a disability a fully accessible experience from the visitors centre to the bus tours of the complex.
Two and a half hours north of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal lies the Elephant Coast on the north Indian Ocean coast of South Africa. The Elephant Coast stretches from St Lucia in the south to Kosi Bay in the north and encompasses a vast array of activities from Big 5 game viewing, whale watching, bird watching, encounters with hippos and crocodiles, turtle tracking, scuba diving, visits to cultural villages in the heart of the Zulu Kingdom or just relaxing on the pristine beaches of the Indian Ocean.
The Wellington Cable Car is one of the city's oldest and most recognisable tourist attractions. It first opened in February 1902 and was originally built to service the housing developments on the steep hill behind the city, a function it still does today.The tram runs from Lambton Quay, right in the centre of the Central Business district. The 5 minute journey takes you to the top entrance of Wellinton's Botanical Gardens and a spectacular view over the city and its harbour. In addition to the observation area the tram gives access to the Cable Car museum and the newly reopened Carter Observatory
Deaf and hearing impaired Australians can now enjoy Australia’s first onsite access to Auslan and caption services at the National Sports Museum in Melbourne. The “Smart Auslan” technology was developed by not‐for‐profit organisation, Australian Communication Exchange (ACE), over an 18‐month partnership with the museum.
I was privileged to be a presenter at the inaugural Access Tourism New Zealand Conference at the Auckland University of Technology on the 4th of October. The conference was opened by The Honourable Tariana Turia, Minister for Disabilities Issues and co-leader of the Maori Party.
