Wheelchair, pram and moblity scooter access via the footpath network to the Taupo boat harbour area, the hidden jewel in Taupo's Tourist Crown, is almost non existant. There are no pedestrian let downs in the curbs on the northern side of Ferry road at all. The cub letdown from the Story Place walkway onto the South end of Redoubt Street by the Boat Harbour Public Toilets is dangerously steep and virtualy unusable for the faint hearted. It can also be blocked by parked cars. Once in the Boat Harbour area there is no wheelchair, mobility scooter, pram access onto the 'Coffee Cart' Island to buy and enjoy a coffee. There is also no way anyone who is wheelchair bound can safely get onto any of the commercial launches for hire. People with physical disabilties do tour and spend money just like any other tourist in our town.
