42 Royal Terrace

Wheelchair / Accessible Access

There are two entrances to this venue, from Royal Terrace and Cobden Street. The Royal Terrace entrance has one step but the venue has a ramp that can be placed over the step to bypass it, and the entrance leads on to a paved pathway. This entrance is 970mm wide.

The Cobden Street entrance has no steps, but has a fairly steep incline and a pebbled pathway, so a wheelchair user would likely struggle with this.

The performance space is outdoor and picnic-style—audiences will need to bring their own seating and/or blankets. The courtyard is pebbled.


There is no specific accessible bathroom at this venue. The bathrooms for audience access are accessible via a pathway that is 1030mm at its narrowest point. The ladies’ bathroom has a doorway that is 730mm wide, and the widest stall entrance is 700mm; there is no railing in the stall. The gents’ bathroom doorway is the same width, but there’s a rubbish bin in the entryway.

Approach to Venue

This venue is accessible off Royal Terrace, which is paved. There is no reserved accessible parking, but plenty of on-street parking is available both on Royal Terrace and on Cobden Street. There are reserved parks for tour buses, which can be used for pick-up and drop-off if need be.

Service Dogs

Service dogs are welcome in this venue.
