Kambalda Aquatic Facility

The Kambalda Aquatic Facility was constructed in 1970 and operated by Western Mining Corporation (WMC). In early 2000's the Shire of Coolgardie inherited the asset when WMC withdrew their presence from Kambalda. Since this time, the Shire has maintained and operated the facility for the benefit of Kambalda residents and other visitors to the region. 

It includes a beach-entry, solar heated universal accessible pool; renovated change rooms including a new universal accessible toilet, new pump room, shade structures, and wheel-chair accessible barbecues,

In 2019, the Shire of Coolgardie commenced the renovation of the Facility which is now being enjoyed by residents and visitors from around the State.  The project construction commenced in June 2019 and was completed in January 2020.  A Official Opening was held in November 2020 whereby the Honourable Michael (Mick) Murray, Minister of XX and Shire President Malcolm Cullen formally opened the facility.

The Kambalda Aquatic Facility is a key sporting tourism asset for the region, and provides health and well-being benefits to the local community.
