In a Sydney-first, permanent disability access has been installed at a Sydney beach to improve wheelchair access.

According to the Southern Courier, on Sunday a 60m mat was placed on the sand at Malabar, leading all the way to the water.

The installation means that wheelchair-bound people will have direct access to the water, without having to struggle across the sand or rely on the help of others to get across.

It is understood that this initiative has taken years of development and campaigning to be made a reality, with the Rainbow Club Australia - which helps kids with disabilities learn how to swim - a big part of the process.
