Australian access

I've never been to Australia. Is it tough to find a place to eat there if you use a wheelchair or have other mobility needs? This article gives that impression: "Until recently Australian restaurants and cafes were not designed or built to provide disabled access. They did not incorporate wheelchair access; ramps and landings; accessible door widths; continuous travel paths and corridor widths; parking spaces and garages; lighting; alarm systems; and toilets." The article goes on to say the government is working to correct such problems in new and perhaps existing buildings.
Good move.
