Gippsland Regional Aquatic Centre

Traralgon in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley is not somewhere most people have heard of, however, it is a bustling centre with a rich coal mining history. However, it was not the history of the area which made news in 2020, but the completion of the new Gippsland Aquatic Centre. The new centre is an innovation for Victoria as it is the first pool complex in the state to utilise geothermally heated water in the pool itself.

After extensive testing by Rockwater, a location was agreed to, a location that would allow aquifers to access bores some 600metres underground to tap the dormant heat and use it for the purposes of heating the pool. The centre was built on this location and includes a 50-metre indoor pool, 25 metre outdoor pool, a learn to swim pool, toddler pool, two waterslides and a spa, making the facility one which can be used both for regional competitions as well as by families in the area.
