Diving into our aquatic future - Aquatic Strategy endorsed

The Maribyrnong Aquatic Strategy, adopted by Council on 12 December 2023, confirms the Maribyrnong Aquatic Centre (the MAC) will be the sole Council-managed facility in our municipality.

To ensure our community has access to a contemporary facility the MAC will also be redeveloped over time, to continue to service the needs of our residents and meet aspirations for a modern-day aquatic facility.

The proposed redevelopment of the MAC will see a stronger focus on therapy and wellness alongside education and recreation. This will see the inclusion of elements such as a new dedicated Learn to Swim/Program Pool, a new dedicated warm water pool with spa and sauna, and a dedicated wellness area, as outlined in the MAC Master Plan.

You will find a copy of the Strategy, MAC Master Plan and Engagement Summary Report in the document library.
