First look inside rec centre

The Mount Gambier community is set to make a splash at Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre at a much-anticipated preview weekend, beginning on December 16.

In an exciting announcement, Mount Gambier City Council chief executive Sarah Philpott said the community can book a free swimming session and a tour of the state-of-the-art Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre on the preview weekend, December 16-18.

“Given the level of community interest and excitement about Wulanda, we expect some sessions to book out quickly, so do not wait to book your spot,” Ms Philpott said.

“Sport and recreation are crucial for the health and wellbeing of our community, and Wulanda is certain to be an extremely popular and rewarding place to connect with friends and family, be active and enjoy the extensive community facilities it provides.”

Ms Philpott said operating partner of Wulanda, Belgravia Leisure, had put together an exciting preview weekend, with free two-hour pool sessions showcasing the revamped outdoor 50m pool and new indoor 25m pool, splash pad, program pool, and learn to swim pool.

At the same time, the community can look at the eastern bank of timber courts, function and community rooms, and the health centre and grab a coffee in the café.

Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre Manager Jason Taylor said that Belgravia was committed to supporting the local economy.

“This means hiring local staff, engaging local suppliers, and keeping our region healthy through investing in resources from the area,” he said.

“The community are invited to book a one-hour tour of Wulanda, which will provide an in-depth showcase of what Wulanda offers to the community regarding community spaces, conventions, entertainment, sports, swimming, and leisure.”

Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin said the community had eagerly awaited Wulanda’s completion, and the preview weekend was an incredible opportunity to see the facility up close.

“Wulanda responds to the community’s desire for quality aquatics and flexible sporting and event spaces.

“It will stand the test of time in reinforcing the City of Mount Gambier and this region as a unique and preferred destination to enjoy for the future,” Mayor Martin said.
