At Gippsland Regional Aquatic Centre we care about access and inclusion. That's why we offer people of all abilities the opportunity to participate in a safe and clean environment with qualified, enthusiastic and reliable staff.
Gippsland Regional Aquatic Centre is committed to community accessibility and ensuring that barriers to participation are reduced for those in need. That's why we offer a wide variety of accessible facilities (see below). We also offer different memberships to help those in our community who are least likely or unable to participate. This includes offering concessional pricing and discounted entry for holders of Companion, Carer and Seniors Cards.
