Third step restrictions: Yarra Leisure service update

Monday 02 November 2020

We’re now in step 3 of the Victorian Government’s roadmap to reopening. 

We’re excited to share a service update with you! Over the coming weeks we will be resuming a range of our core services, including swimming lessons, group exercise and our gyms.  Please note, this is a high-level update as we’re still working on the finer details of our group exercise timetable, gym bookings and learn to swim program. We will share all these details over the next two weeks. 

If you have a specific question about one of our services, please send it to us at yarraleisure@yarracity.vic.gov.au, we may not have the answer right now, but this will help guide and shape our future communications.

Richmond and Collingwood gyms are currently undergoing equipment upgrades so are not able to open any earlier.
