Darwin Wave Pool

Darwin Waterfront cooperation hosts a large array of indoor & outdoor precincts including the project focus which was devised around the wave & recreation lagoons.

Built as a part of the Darwin Waterfront Project, this Boogie Board Wave Pool is the largest wave pool in Australia, & at the time of design, is one of only six wave pools in the world. The pool is 2m in depth & covers 4,000 square meters, including an area with more shallow water. The waves run on a cycle, with 10 different wave patterns for all types of swimmers & boogie boarders.

GNFP (BEC) was responsible for the pool’s structure, wave plant, pool filtration, mechanical & hydraulic services. The 1.2m high boogie board wave is produced by pneumatic systems by Murphy Waves & Services designed by VOS Group.

Peninsula Leisure Centre

#The Peninsula Leisure Centre located on the NSW coastline is home to a wide range of community offerings including the aquatic centre, 24h fitness centre, indoor sports & children’s facilities.

This multi-discipline project was the construction of a major regional aquatic centre. The project involved a 60m span tubular trussed roof over an indoor 50m heated lap pool, & a 25m leisure & program pool.

With its unique layout & features, the leisure & program pools support many diverse functions for its users, such as swim classes, activities for children, & everyday enjoyment. The project also included a 2-court multipurpose building & gymnasium, featuring a post-tensioned steel roof with extensive use of exposed steelwork.

Broken Hill Aquatic Centre

#The Broken Hill Aquatic Centre project involved a new 50mx20m 8-lane outdoor pool, a leisure pool that includes a slide, amenities buildings, concourse, plant rooms & grandstand seating. The water slide is a 70m ride dropping from an 8m platform, making it a thrilling experience for those at the centre.

The Centre facilities now offer a wide range of services to support activities for overall health & fitness such as a health club, hypnotherapy pool, indoor & outdoor pool facilities & a water playground for children. 

As part of a community partnership with YMCA NSW, this aquatic centre collaboration proved very beneficial for the community at Broken Hill & will continue to be so for years to come. GNFP (BEC) collaborated with Crystal Pools for the design & construction of this project.
