Marveloo

The Australian Grand Prix Corporation is proud to be offer for the first time the Marveloo Accessible Toilet and Change Room. 
Marveloo has been designed to meet the needs of people with profound and multiple learning disabilities, their carers, and the many other disabled people who are unable to use standard accessible toilets.


Marveloo is purpose built and is the first of its kind in Australia, which is attributed to its many special features including; 

  • a fully accessible toilet 
  • overhead ceiling hoist 
  • height adjustable adult change table 
  • modesty curtain 
  • additional seating 
  • heating and cooling 
  • a safe and clean environment 
  • adequate space 
  • an automatic door 
  • access ramp
  • an external sun shade 


All users are required to provide their own sling for use of the over head ceiling hoist and advised to check that their sling is compatible with the ceiling hoist provided in each Marveloo, prior to use. Marveloo 1 is fitted with an Eclipse 100 Series Ceiling Hoist and Marveloo 2 is fitted with a Prism Medical Model C-450 Ceiling Hoist. If compatibility has not been checked or there is some uncertainty, the user should not use the ceiling hoist.  


The Marveloo is conveniently located in Gardner Village south at the rear of the Disability Viewing Platform and close-by to the pedestrian gate 7. Please see below for location on the circuit map indicated by the accessible blue logo:
