The Mount Gambier community is set to make a splash at Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre at a much-anticipated preview weekend, beginning on 16 December 2022.

In a much-anticipated announcement, City of Mount Gambier CEO Sarah Philpott said that 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, 16-18 December 2022.

Given the level of community interest and excitement about Wulanda, we expect some sessions to book out quickly, so don’t wait to book your spot. City of Mount Gambier CEO Sarah Philpott

“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.”

Operating partner of Wulanda, Belgravia Leisure, has 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.

Jason Taylor, Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre Manager, said that Belgravia is 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. Jason Taylor - Wulanda Recreation and Convention Centre Manager

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.

City of Mount Gambier Mayor Lynette Martin OAM said that the community has eagerly awaited Wulanda’s completion, and the preview weekend is 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.
