June Opie Cottage

June Opie Cottage offers affordable accessible tourist accommodation for wheelchair travellers.

This cottage, which sleeps up to 7 people, has been specially modified for wheelchair guests. It is fully self-contained with private facilities and a direct view of Queens Lake. The cottage is 8.1m X 6.2m and consists of two bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge and kitchen. Access is via a ramp and the view from the deck across Queens Lake is unique. Blankets and pillows are supplied, linen and towels are available for hire.

June, an author and polio victim, was a long term resident of Christmas Cove Caravan Park. She was confined to a wheelchair and lived in this cottage with its prime position overlooking Queens Lake.

June inspired people worldwide with her tireless work on behalf of people with disabilities. She died in 1999, leaving behind her a legacy of determined independence and individualism that is clearly portrayed in her best selling book, “Over My Dead Body” and its sequel, “Over My Dead Body 40 Years On”. Since her death, June’s cottage has been modified and modernised to create a facility especially adapted for wheelchair living.

“I am a double amputee and I found June Opie Cottage to be very accessible. It was wonderful, thank you.”

“We have a daughter with cerebral palsy and this has been the first accommodation in 3 weeks which has made showering her easy. Thank you so much”
