Intro

Kambalda’s new $3 million aquatic centre
  • Kambalda's redeveloped $3 million aquatic facility officially opened.
  • State Government $700,000 CSRFF funding contribution enabled project to go ahead.
  • New facilities and upgrades replace run-down, original 50-year-old aquatic centre.

The State Government provided $700,000 to the project through its Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF), with the Western Australian Treasury Corporation providing a $1.95 million loan to the shire.

The newly upgraded facility, in Barnes Drive, Kambalda West, will replace the town's original swimming pool which was built 50 years ago and closed last year as it required urgent repairs and no longer met the needs of the community.

The project involved:

  • upgrading the 50-metre pool and plant
  • refurbishing the change rooms
  • relocating the administration office
  • upgrading the first aid room
  • developing a new universal access pool to replace the existing learn to swim pool.

The facility's main pool is the only outdoor 50-metre pool in the Coolgardie-Kambalda area.

Additional funding was contributed to the project by the Commonwealth Government ($287,823); and the Gold Fields Australia Foundation ($200,000).
