Toilets - Changing Places Facility

Gunyama Park is a Changing Place accredited facility. This means the changing and toilet facilities are secure and tidy, and designed to meet the needs of people who require space and assistance, and for those where a generic toilet is not suitable.

Facilities include:

  • Specialised accessible toilet
  • Height adjustable adult change table
  • A hoist and tracking system
  • Room to meet the needs of people with profound disabilities and their carers.

The hoist provides a track through to the Hydrotherapy Pool.

You don’t have to be a customer of the centre to use the Changing Places Facility, you’re welcome to get changed and use the bathroom.
