Masterplan for the Wangaratta Sport and Aquatic Centre


The Rural City of Wangaratta is inviting community consultation through an online survey to assist in the development of a Masterplan for the Wangaratta Sport and Aquatic Centre (WSAC). The Masterplan will identify strategic enhancements to the centre’s amenities and will ensure the facility reflects the needs of its members and wider community.


This year WSAC will celebrate its 50th anniversary and will soon complete its major expansion and upgrade project. Council takes great pride in the Wangaratta Sports and Aquatic Centre and is pleased to provide this leading-edge sporting and community hub to the Wangaratta community and regional guests.


Council is seeking community input on how to improve the facilities, for example: enhancing the outdoor pool space to be fun and accessible for families; increasing opportunities for community connection throughout the centre; and improving the accessibility and comfort of the change rooms for all age groups. Current and past users of the facility, as well as those who have never visited the Wangaratta Sport and Aquatic Centre, are all encouraged to participate in the survey, which will require about 10 minutes to complete.

Survey participants will have the opportunity to enter a draw to win a free 12-month membership at WSAC.


The Masterplan aims to investigate ways to further activate the centre and identify opportunities for greater inclusion and accessibility. Feedback from this survey will be one of many considerations that will inform the WSAC Masterplan along with asset condition reports, RCOW strategies and policies, and industry best practice.


CEO Brendan McGrath encourages the community to participate:

"Council recognises that the heart of any facility lies in its ability to serve community effectively. We are committed to creating a Masterplan that truly reflects the needs of our members and the broader community. By inviting feedback through this survey, we are ensuring that every voice is heard, whether you're a long-time user, a newcomer, or someone who has yet to step through our doors.” He said.
