310x174 SPA CLOSED

Update 8pm, 09/02/16
Spa, Steam, Sauna Update

As previously advised we have had engineers and consultants in to look at the Spa, Steam and Sauna area.

Contractors have been engaged to commence repair works and you will see that the area has now been boarded up whilst these works are being completed.

We thank you for your understanding as we work through these repair works.  If you have any further queries with regards to the spa feel free to email the Manager at

Thank you.

Update 6pm, 15/01/16.
The Spa, Sauna and Steam rooms remain closed for maintenance.

In conjunction with Council, we have had engineers and consultants engaged to consider the maintenance repair options and they have been out regularly to investigate repair solutions.

They are completing their investigations and we expect a decision on the preferred solution in the coming days.  Once we have that determination, a more accurate assessment with regards to the expected re-opening times of the spa steam and sauna area will be provided. 

As more information comes to hand it will be posted here as well as on our Facebook page.  We recognise that this creates significant disruption for members and guests and we apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Members can access the following centres free of charge for the duration of the works:

Reservoir Leisure Centre - show your Northcote Membership Card
YMCA Victoria Managed Facilities - show your Member Benefit Card*

To request a variation to your membership due to the closure please visit the Spa Updates Link to the right of this page.

Thank you again for your patience.

Matt Weisheit | Centre Manager

*speak with our Customer Service Staff if you require another card.

Update 5pm, 8/12/15.
Further maintenance works are being done in the spa area, and we are working through these with Council and the Contractors. Therefore, at this stage the spa will remain closed until Saturday, at which time a further update will be provided.

Attention Members and Guests,

We have had to close our spa area this afternoon (Thursday Dec, 3) for some required maintenance works and expect to be able to provide some updates tomorrow by noon.
We have spoken with the amazing team at the Reservoir Leisure Centre who are happy to provide access to their spa and sauna area to Northcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre members while our spa area is closed.  Alternatively, if you would like to visit another YMCA Victoria managed facility, please see our reception staff and ask for a members benefit card.

We do apologise to you our members for the various pool and spa closures occuring at the moment and the inconvenience caused, Management.
