This area of the centre is used for a variety of healthy activities in the multipurpose pool, spa and steam room facilities.

The multipurpose pool is suitable for a wide range of customers with specific needs. There is a designated space for gentle exercise in warm water and an area suitable for a variety of activities. The multipurpose pool is available to hire. Programs conducted in the multipurpose pool include water-based exercise classes, private physiotherapy sessions, school-based swimming classes, sporting groups and swimming lessons.


The multipurpose pool is divided into two sections by a ramp entrance with handrails suitable for people with mobility concerns or using a wheelchair. We have wheelchairs that are suitable for water-based use or customers may bring their own equipment. Entry is free for carers with a Companion Card. Please refer to Centre Accessibility for specific details.

The multipurpose pool has designated areas available for hire and bookings are recommended for groups and health specialists. Contact us on (03) 5334 2499 email rebeccamcphee@ballarat.vic.gov.au for further information.

If you need help to manage a chronic condition or an injury, our multipurpose pool will be a valuable addition to your existing therapy, whether in the gentle exercise area or with the assistance of a health specialist or one of our trainers.

You can ease tired muscles in our 24 seat spa and enjoy the health benefits from spending time in our steam room, which has level access and a wide door suitable for wheelchairs.

The steam room provides a humid environment which can help improve blood circulation and alleviate some respiratory conditions. The heated atmosphere can assist in detoxing the body through increased perspiration.

Please note that the steam room is not suitable for any type of physical activity while you are inside. It is essential to limit the duration of time spent in the steam room and to ensure that you remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water before and after your visit.

If you have any questions about appropriate use of the multipurpose pool, spa and steam room facilities, please speak to our friendly staff.
