Located in the seaside area of Victor Harbor, The Fleurieu Aquatic Centre opened its doors to the community on 25 March 2017, providing the region’s rapidly growing population with a new community focus for recreation, fitness and leisure. The $21 million centre includes lap, multi-use and rehabilitation pools, an outdoor splash pad, fitness facilities, a café and family focused BBQ and picnic areas. 

The concept for Fleurieu Aquatic Centre is inspired by the local indigenous story of Kondili the whale. In this story, four friends are attacked and retreat to the sea to become four sea creatures. This is manifested in the pool by way of four key spaces (pool hall, warm water pool, community facilities / multipurpose and administration/services spine) representing each of the creatures (Hames Sharley, 2018).

Ecodynamics were engaged by head contractor Kennett Builders to construct the hard and soft scapes for the centre. Soft scaping elements included 2600m2 of instant turf, 4500m2 of irrigated garden beds and the planting of 17,000 plants. The team also constructed hardscaping elements such as timber logs and boulders for the playground, and rock lined bioswales to filter and improve the quality of storm water run-off.

Testament to the success of the project, Fleurieu Aquatic Centre has been nominated for a Master Landscapers of South Australia “2018 Award of Excellence”.

Nominated for a Master Landscapers of South Australia “2018 Award of Excellence”, the design for the Fleurieu Aquatic Centre responds to its specific climate conditions.
