My Visit To Moonee In Melbourne: Most of my accessibility reviews are typically on coastal or regional holiday-type properties. So I was thrilled to have the rare chance to review* an accessible 2nd-floor apartment in a lovely Melbourne’s inner suburb. The location – 7 km from the CBD and 13 km from Tullamarine (Melbourne) domestic and international airport – is exciting enough. That this apartment is huge with two extra bedrooms on top of the enormous accessible bedroom, has a real kitchen and a view is a super welcome option for many scenarios where people need or want to be close to urban life.
I loved the fact that the accessible zone can be separated from the rest of the apartment, which is ideal if you require carers yet prefer a little privacy. The accessible zone has an ensuite, kitchenette, dining table, a massive TV plus two hi lo electric beds and the option of a hoist!

From my knowledge and experience Accessible Accommodation is a unique leader in understanding what types of respite, rehab and holiday accommodation people with disabilities need. But more importantly what information is required for prospective guests to feel confident in their choice of accommodation. They are the benchmark and I think their website and booking information works beautifully.
SUMMARY OF MOONEE IN MELBOURNE:
This gorgeous, modern apartment is the closest I’ve seen to full accessibility for all physical needs while retaining the comfort and beauty that I would expect from an inner-city stay.
I was really delighted in the inclusive two-block roll along Pascoe Vale Rd to the historic and breathtaking Queens Park. Wide smooth paths, exquisitely manicured and roll-able expanses of lawn, ducks, swans, playgrounds shaded by grand old trees, a café and an Exeloo confirmed to me that Moonee Ponds is a great place to visit.

I look at the ways in which businesses present an overall inclusive experience for their patrons. While I focus on mobility access, I hope to get ideas from you and others to add observations relating to other disabilities. I take a comprehensive look at everything from initial website experience to staff attitudes. Finally and importantly, I advise you to research to suit your individual needs but I hope this is a good start.
*Although I was paid by Accessible Accommodation for this opportunity I have been honest in my comments and feedback. Please reach out with any questions HERE. Happy accessible living and playing!
