Nexus Arts Accessibility

The information below is to help you make decisions about your visit.

There is an accessible parking bay located at the Morphett Street Entrance to the Lion Arts Centre. It is outside the Mercury Cinema entrance.

The NEXUS ARTS VENUE (at the same level as the Mercury Cinema) is wheelchair accessible. It has two doors:

Outside Main door: 1.641m wide

Internal Middle door: 1.625m wide

The NEXUS ARTS GALLERY is below in a courtyard and has ramp access. The ramp is 1.15m wide, however it has four narrow turning points and is not suitable for all wheelchair users.

The video on this page provides more information about accessing the GALLERY. Alternatively click here.

There are male and female bathrooms inside the VENUE in the foyer. The bathroom does not meet current accessibility standards.

There is a standalone gender-neutral bathroom outside to the right of the main entrance to the VENUE. The bathroom is locked and the Front of House staff will be happy to unlock it for you.

The bathroom does not meet current accessibility standards. However, it is easier to access than the internal bathroom:

Doorway: 0.793m wide

Door type: heavy push door opening inwards.

Room dimensions: 1.770m x 2.455m

There are two handrails and a low freestanding sink. 

The GALLERY does not have bathrooms available for public use. During the Gallery’s opening hours, there are bathrooms available opposite the Nexus Venue at UniSA.

Guide dogs and/or support animals are welcome at our GALLERY and VENUE. We do not, however, have any soiling or drinking stations at this time.
