Adult Changing Places

Existing toilet block in Anglesea

Surf Coast Shire Council and Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) have partnered to construct and maintain an accessible change room and toilet for people with high physical support needs. The Adult Changing Places (ACP) facility in Anglesea (at the Four Kings car park) will have an adult change table and hoist.

GORCC already has plans to refurbish the existing toilet facilities at Four Kings, and this work will include upgrading the exterior cladding on the existing block to match the final design of the new Changing Place facility.

There are only 70 ACPs throughout Australia and this facility is designed to provide dignified and equal opportunities for people to experience the beauty of the Surf Coast.

The internal design and structure of the new amenity will comply with the Australian Design Standards for Adult Changing Places. To be eligible for Changing Places accreditation - and to meet funding requirements - facilities must be built using the designs approved by Changing Places. These designs offer the right circulation space and best practice principles to offer the most convenient experience for Changing Places users.

  • an adult sized change table
