Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre changeroom redevelopment


The council, in conjunction with Aligned Leisure, is under taking work to upgrade the aquatic changing facilities at the Wodonga Sports and Leisure Centre (WSLC).

The proposed plan for the upgrades outlines several key improvements. These works are necessary as the existing primary change rooms at the WSLC are outdated and in need of renewal to meet the varying needs of the community.

Works will commence in February and the majority of the refurbishment works are expected to be complete by the end of April 2024. Associated works may continue ontsite until the end of June, with the new change rooms accessible during this period. 

Temporary toilet and shower facilities will be available external to the centre, through the southern pool doors. Patrons will also be able to access toilets and change rooms located near the gym and stadium.

Wodonga Council is managing the project, with the construction tender awarded to Binding Building in December 2023. This project is being funded through the council’s building renewal budget.

The completion of these upgrades will improve the safety, wellbeing and user experience for all patrons.
