The Sydney Opera House has been described as “the people’s house” by chief executive Louise Herron, but visiting can be a challenge for people with disability.
Extensive upgrades have improved access to the Opera House but the president of the Association for Children with a Disability, Timothy Smith, said it is still not ideal.
“In order to enter the main concert hall, you need to find an attendant who then takes you backstage and through a lift which will take you to the main part of the concert hall,” said Mr Smith, whose eight-year-old son Marcus uses a wheelchair.
“Although better than having to use the goods lift, it is certainly not ideal.”
