Why people with disability avoid Sydney

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.”
