Brimbank aquatic centre completed

Brimbank Council has announced the completion of the multi-million dollar new Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre.

Council says the new state-of-the-art centre, in Taylors Road, Keilor Downs, is a unique health and wellbeing hub

“Brimbank Councillors are very pleased to have delivered the new world-class Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre for our community,” said Mayor, Jasmine Nguyen.

“To see the doors finally open on this spectacular centre after many years of planning, development and construction is heart-warming and we’re very excited to now welcome you inside to enjoy what’s on offer.

The new centre features:

  • A 50 metre, 10 lane Olympic-sized swimming pool
  • Two massive water slides
  • Kids’ splash park with slides and water features
  • Warm water exercise pool with separate spa, steam room and sauna
  • Health club across two levels accessible 24/7
  • Four dedicated group fitness studios for classes such as Reformer Pilates, Yoga and Cycle
  • Six suite wellness centre
  • Fresh food café with indoor/outdoor dining areas
  • Crèche
  • Community program room and more.

Also on board at the centre over the coming weeks are tenant partner services with National Disability Insurance Scheme provider, Distinctive Options, and community support agencies, Comm Unity Plus Services Ltd and Good Shepherd Australia New Zealand to deliver integrated services aimed at improving the lives of residents in Melbourne’s west.

The new Centre also boasts some impressive energy efficient credentials. In May it was recognised for its ‘world-leading’ sustainable design by the Green Building Council of Australia.  The centre has now achieved their highest rating – a 6-Star Green Star Design & As Built v1.2 score – making it the first indoor aquatic centre in Australia to achieve this rating.

To celebrate the opening of the Brimbank Aquatic and Wellness Centre, a special community day is being planned for Sunday 2 October. For more information visit bawc.brimbank.vic.gov.au.

The Centre’s construction was supported by a $2 million grant from the Victorian Government. The Australian Government has committed $1.53 million towards an integrated renewable energy system, through the Australian Renewable Energy Agency’s (ARENA) Advancing Renewables Program.
