Excitement is building in Mount Gambier as the completion of the Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre nears, with membership packages approved by Council.
Last night, at the City of Mount Gambier Council, a motion was carried approving the fees and charges for programs and activities at Wulanda at a Special Council Meeting, moving the project closer to opening.
City of Mount Gambier CEO Sarah Philpott said a range of individual, family, child, concession and spectator pricing was approved by Council and ensures Wulanda is an affordable community space that will service Mount Gambier for multiple generations.
“The fees and charges have been reviewed and benchmarked against a range of aquatic and recreation facilities in South Australia and Victoria, as well as the previous fees and charges for the Mount Gambier Aquatic Centre,” Ms Philpott said.
“This review has established that the fees and charges align with those at facilities with similar offerings.”
Since announcing Belgravia Leisure as the operator of Wulanda, they have held a series of meetings with community and sporting groups to ensure that Wulanda will meet and exceed expectations.
“The community have affordable access to a state-of-the-art facility, complete with FINA standard swimming pools and NBA quality timber courts”, Ms Philpott said.
“A casual swim at Wulanda for adults is $7.50, and a range of packages are available for the community to access the centre.”
“Wulanda is a multi-purpose community space, with facilities and activities for all ages and abilities, including children, families, youth, community groups, recreational and organised sports, and those with special needs.”
“The establishment of Wulanda is an incredible legacy for Mount Gambier.”City of Mount Gambier CEO Sarah Philpott
