AquaZone Access

Aquazone facility and programs aim to provide a welcoming, accessible and inclusive environment to all members of our community.

The Centre is currently Warrnambool’s only aquatic leisure and recreation centre which provides aquatic and fitness programs at one location. While being Warrnambools only public pool swimming location. It provides equitable and affordable access to a wide range of aquatic and fitness activities.

AquaZone aims to encourage participation in physical activity and promote social connection and inclusion for the community.

Aquazone is located on the corner of Jamieson Street and Queens Road and has been the home of non-ocean swimming in Warrnambool for five decades. 

The original outdoor swimming pool complex was built in 1960s and included 50m Olympic, toddler and dive pools. 

In 2002, a new facility - Aquazone - was developed on the site with the addition of indoor 25m, program and leisure pools; as well as fitness facilities, and new customer and staff amenities. 

The South West community was very active in advocating and fundraising for the new facility. 

Today, Aquazone is the major indoor community aquatic and leisure facility in South West Victoria. It provides equitable and affordable access to a wide range of aquatic and fitness activities. 

It is currently Warrnambool's only aquatic and leisure and recreation centre which provides indoor and outdoor heated pools for fitness and play, a large gymnasium, group cycle studio and fitness programs.

Warrnambool Aquatic Strategy 2023

AquaZone opened as an outdoor facility in 1962. 

A redevelopment in 2002 saw the addition of indoor pools, gymnasium and associated components. 

Based on current demand, the age of the centre and existing and likely maintenance issues, Council has identified the need for an updated Aquatic Strategy. A key aim of this strategy is to provide options for either renewing or redeveloping AquaZone on the existing site, or, closing AquaZone an developing a new centre at a greenfield site. 

AquaZone has major weakness such as poor accessibility, the absence of a warm water pool and the end-of-life issues associated with the original outdoor pool components. A comprehensive asset condition audit of the aquatic areas indicated that about $3 million be required over the next 10 years simply to 'patch work' these pools while about $10 million was required to construct a new 50m pool, replace associated plant and refurbish the indoor pools. Despite these issues, Aquazone continues to perform exceptionally well in safety with a 95% compliance and 92% safety score from the recent Life Saving Victoria  Safety Audit. 

As part of the research process associated with with reviewing the options for future provision, an assessment of the current situation, target consultation, industry consultation/ trends research and review of Council strategies were undertaken. This research guided the potential for 3 options for assessment.
