Regional Facilities Auckland (RFA) enriches life in Auckland by engaging people in the arts, environment, sport and events. It prides itself on being accessible to everyone.

All RFA venues have been audited by Be.Accessible, a social change initiative with a mission to create a truly accessible country, and have been awarded ratings from gold to bronze. The aim is to eventually have every facility receive a gold rating.

Auckland Art Gallery is one facility that already has a Be.Accessible gold rating. The gallery is wheelchair accessible, and there are wheelchairs and walking sticks available for visitors to use at no charge.

There’s a hearing loop in the auditorium, and New Zealand Sign Language tours are available, as well as descriptive tours of artworks for people with vision impairments.

For more information about accessibility at RFA venues, phone or visit the website of the venue you wish to know more about.
