The best time to visit is from September to April but there is a wet weather program in place should there be heavy rainfall.
The village primarily has cobbled pathway however part of the experience takes place in a forest area with a dirt surface and some roots. There are clear paths in this area and there are plenty of guides on hand to assist where needed.
Both the Meeting house and Dining Rooms have ramps that are at least a meter wide and have a gentle slope. The doorways for these buildings are double doors. There is a wheelchair accessible bathroom and powerpoints are available for powerchairs to recharge.
