Innovative Leisure Facilities Tour

Wednesday 19th July

The provision of community aquatic, leisure and sports centres continues to evolve and attract the broadest community, with centres embracing holistic health services and their designs.

Working with Victoria’s leading peak body for community aquatic and leisure centres this Tour will visit some of the latest facilities and listen to the leading architects and thinkers on where facilities will be going over the next 20+ years.

The tour will visit key leisure centres around Melbourne including:

  • Clip ‘N Climb Richmond – One of Melbourne’s busiest commercial leisure facilities that has taken the sport, indoor climbing and packaged it in a manner that appeals to all generations, with a focus on fun, excitement and enjoyment that they receive.
  • Aquanation Ringwood – A new, world class aquatic centre with the latest designs for aquatics, recreation, fitness and programming that encourages the greatest participation into the community.
  • Ivanhoe Aquatic – Explore the redevelopment – including new facility designs, technology integration and member experiences being offered for this mid-range sized centre.
  • WaterMarc Banyule – Phase two of the centre development included the new Council offices above the centre, which has allowed more space for Council to provide a conversion into a more holistic health and wellness space to reach a broader community base.

The Tour departs from the Pullman Hotel Albert Park at 9.15am and will return around 4.00pm, includes lunch and is limited to 50 people. Cost of the Tour will be $125 +GST per person.
