Getting Around

All Stonnington residents should enjoy wellbeing, dignity and independence. We’re committed to helping those with a disability and their carers and families. 

The following maps and resources will help you locate important areas and amenities, wheelchair recharge points and community transport options.

Public transport

Council is committed to encouraging sustainable transport options by promoting accessible environments and journeys. For information on accessible public transport, visit:

Companion Card

The Companion Card is a tool to assist organisations that charge an admission or participation fee to comply with existing anti-discrimination legislation. The Companion Card is issued to people with a significant, permanent disability, who can demonstrate that they are unable to access most community activities and venues without attendant care support.

The card contains a photograph of the cardholder and can be presented when booking or purchasing a ticket at events and venues, provided the cardholder requires attendant care support to participate at that particular activity. Participating organisations will issue the cardholder with a second ticket for their companion at no charge. 

For more information visit Companion Card.

National public toilet map

The Toilet Map is a part of the National Continence Program and provides information on over 16,000 publicly available toilets across Australia, including accessibility, opening hours and facilities such as baby change and showers.

For more information visit the National Public Toilet Map.

Recycled Sound hearing aids

Recycled Sound collects pre-loved hearing aids and recycles them back into the community for those in need. This community service project by Toorak Rotary is delivered in partnership with local audiologists and Better Hearing Australia.

You can donate hearing aids at any of our libraries, or to find out about receiving hearing aids call Better Hearing Australia on 9510 1577.
