Tent or roofed accommodation

Using permanent accommodation, party members can return to prepared hot food and warm drinks, clean dry clothes and hot showers. Electric wheelchairs can be recharged and road access for emergency services is present. Permanent accommodation eases the tasks of toiletting, washing and feeding while still allowing participation in the outdoors. The convenience offered is particularly attractive for snow trips.

For more capable individuals and groups, tent camping is entirely feasible. Depending on capabilities, it may be conducted as part of a conventional bushwalk, as a base camp or a tent site 300 m away from permanent accommodation. Sleeping bags with a full zip can be useful for those with mobility difficulties. An air mattress on top of a closed-cell foam mat can be better for those who may develop pressure sores.
