As mandated by the Federal Government, all gyms and recreation centres will temporarily close as of 12:00pm (noon) today, Monday 23 March 2020. The following centres will be closed:

  • Kilgariff Recreation Centre
  • Henry Scott Recreation Centre
  • Palmerston Swimming and Fitness Centre – Gym only

    Please note:
  • There are no confirmed cases of the virus among any of our centre staff or members
  • All memberships, including term memberships and visit passes, will automatically be placed on suspension during the period of closure and you will not be charged
  • The Swimming Pool at Palmerston Swimming and Fitness Centre will remain open at this stage.  A limit of 100 patrons on site at any time is now in effect.
  • Due to the vulnerability of the young people who access the Youth Services that usually run at Henry Scott Recreation centre, the youth programs will continue but in a modified, outdoor environment with strict hygiene and social distancing measures in place. 

    For the most up-to-date information, including best-practice hygiene and information to avoid spreading the virus, please refer to the following websites:
