Facility Redevelopment
Wellington Shire Council has approved the concept design for a multi-million dollar redevelopment of Aqua Energy.

The redevelopment will enable the replacement of the 25 metre indoor pool and pool hall, which is 48 years old. There is also greater need for all abilities access to the entire precinct, which at the moment is limited to only some areas.

Plans for the redevelopment include:

  • New 25 metre pool, pool hall and water treatment system
  • New zero depth indoor water play space
  • New 24hr gym access
  • New wet, dry, schools and family change areas
  • New sauna
  • New on-deck swim school office
  • Refurbished outdoor pool change rooms
  • Environmentally sustainability design improvements


The new development would not only see the 25 metre pool replaced, but would improve accessibility.

Among improvements slated for all abilities access include ‘Changing Places’ amenities for older children and adults with high support needs, the elimination of all internal ramps and stairs so that the entire complex is on one level with universal accessibility achieved throughout.

School and member access to and from the precinct will also be improved with an upgraded entry from Guthridge Parade car park.

Estimated cost of the project is $12.9 million, of which $950,000 was been confirmed from the John Leslie Foundation, a minimum of $3 million to be sought through external grants and the remainder to be provided by Council through borrowings and the Capital Works Budget.

Current Status

The project is due to commence the detailed design phase, with the design tender awarded to Haskell Architects. Check back soon for regular progress updates.
