A former gold mining town, Eaglehawk features some gorgeous heritage architecture. It’s a bustling town with a good allocation of accessible parking options, a botanical gardens, cafes, pubs and high street shopping.
The Annual Dahlia and Arts events (March) and Canterbury Carol service (December) are community highlights which showcase some of the diversity and talent within ‘The Borough’ and are events that are working hard to ensure that access and inclusion are a part of their programming, as well as providing good access for visitors to their events.
As with lots of heritage towns there are a few steps around town, and we have spoken to several shops and promoted portable ramps and wedge mats. The main Road crossings are good, take care crossing further down towards Peg Leg road and the botanical gardens as there are road reserves but no lights or pedestrian crossings.
Once you get there the gardens are gorgeous and you can pop next door to Skips Skate Shop for a coffee and a chat with the locals, and if you are travelling with kids visit the library for inclusive Story time.
