Firstport is on the hunt for reviews of the best accessible day trips and they need your help!

Venues, attractions, councils and businesses are increasingly improving their physical and sensory accessibility provisions to enable everyone to enjoy what they have to offer. These great places might have accessibility features that help with physical access and inclusion, or perhaps special sensory features.

Submit your review as part of Firstport’s Great Accessibility Day Out competition and help share news of the places that are top of the pack when it comes to providing accessibility for all. By entering you’ll go in the draw to win an Annual Pass for an attraction of your choice, up to the value of $250!

From the reviews received, Firstport plans to build a fantastic library of reviews to sit on the website that other family and friend groups can check out next time they’re planning a special day out. The competition closes 5pm Sunday 11th August 2019.

To find out more about the competition and submit your review visit www.firstport.co.nz...
