Unfortunately, one block back from the CBD most of the shops have the legacy of a tropical environment design with a major step in front of them. Some options do exist.
The major nightlife venue of the city is The Jack on the corner of Sheridan and Spence Street. It is a major hotel with life band venue. Access to the main bar is via a ramp in Spence Street and the entertainment venue via a level entry off Spence Street. Inside there is good manoeuvring room and a wide range of seating options.
Other venues that offer wheelchair access are:
Bob Zip – Modern Korean Restaurant – 42-44 Spence Street
Outback Jacks Bar and Grill – 5/78 Abbott St. Note there is a 25mm sill at the two full width sliding doors
Gourmand China – 69 Abbott Street
Fishpoint fish, chips and beer – 2 Aplin St
