Whether you’re looking to get fit, engage in social activities or need a venue for your next big event, Gungahlin Leisure Centre offers a state-of-the-art facility at the heart of a thriving community.
First opened in 2014, Gungahlin Leisure Centre has quickly become one of the key hubs of the growing region, and features a range of fitness facilities along with a program of exciting activities year round.
Boasting a health club, group fitness area, program pool, heated 50m indoor lap pool, creche and café, the facility offers a focus on fitness and health, while also serving as a focal point for meeting new friends and socialising.
From learn to swim classes for tiny tots to fitness for children, teens and over 55s, community health is at the heart of the Leisure Centre philosophy.
The centre features two pools that operate year-round and hosts aqua aerobics, squad training along with SwimAbility swimming and water safety classes for people with a disability, and swimming lessons for children and adults, conducted by nationally accredited swimming instructors.

Known as the region’s premium local community aquatic and recreation centre, Gungahlin Leisure Centre also offers a lot more than a venue for family and friends to enjoy.
