YouthWorX NT was proud to sponsor the Mainstream Business Award (Non-Government) which was won by Bromeliad Bed and Breakfast.

National Disability Services Northern Territory, in collaboration with the Northern Territory Government's Department of Health, proudly presented the 2013 Northern Territory Disability Services Awards. The Awards provide the opportunity to recognise and reward the achievements of disability sector employees, support services and businesses that have demonstrated outstanding commitment to improving the lives of people with a disability.

Carol and Geoff McKenzie, owners of Bromeliad Bed and Breakfast, have opened their home to people requiring truly wheelchair accessible accommodation or ‘wheelie friendly accommodation’ as they call it. As parents of a son suddenly requiring a wheelchair-friendly environment, Carol and Geoff used their experiences as a family to create a place which was totally accessible for people visiting the Northern Territory.

Extensive modifications and extensions to their home include a hydraulic lifter to allow guests entry and exit from the pool, a kitchen with lowered bench tops and gas cook top as well as bathrooms which are sufficiently spacious to allow a comfortable washing experience. Bromeliad Bed and Breakfast have allowed families the ability to holiday comfortably together using suitable accommodation, some of whom had not previously entertained the idea.
