The Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre will be undergoing major works of all internal staircases and a new external gym entrance from the 5th of November to late April 2019. Find out more here.
We're excited to announce that from Monday the 25th of March, we will be launching our new Customer Service entry, directly into the Health Club. We hope this will provide a more accessible way for our members and customers to achieve their health and fitness goals. Located adjacent to the lift entry on level 1, fitted at the entry are member swipe entry gates, as well as a Customer Service desk, staffed every minute that we are open for your convenience! Please also note that the main stairwell that leads to the Health Club will be closed off on Tuesday 26 March as we commence upgrades. To access the Health Club, please enter via the new Customer Service entry located on level 1.
