Getting to headspace Albany
We are located on St Emilie Way which is at the top of York Street, the surrounding shops can sometimes help guide people here. Opposite ABC Great Southern radio studio and a few shops down to Hollywood Nails. If in doubt Google Maps will show you the way.
The front door opens into the arcade, not off the main street. The whole centre is accessible for wheelchairs and people with access needs. If you have any queries about accessibility please ask when you call us or ask your care coordinator so we can help you out. The door is not automatic and can be heavy to open, please knock if you need assistance or call ahead.
The entry to headspace Albany is a tiled and covered passage way. On the St Emilie Way side there is a brick paved pathway, that is on an incline. On the car park side there is a asphalt coated car park with some loose gravel. This is the side where the ACROD parking is located.
Inside the centre there are carpet squares through out and lino in the bathroom. The bathroom is for use by all genders and the hand rail is on the right hand side.
We have ample 2-hour parking at the back of the centre in a car park shared with the surrounding shops Icky Finks, Hollywood Nails and Sportspower.
