HOT: AquaPulse, Hoppers Crossing


AquaPulse Hoppers Crossing is a huge indoor aquatic and leisure centre with enough slipping, sliding and swimming to keep the kids entertained for hours.

We were invited by Experience Wyndham to visit Aquapulse Werribee in the middle of winter – which turns out to be a great time to go! It’s all indoors, undercover and heated and if you’re going to get wet, you might as well get really wet.

As you enter the gates the huge pool area is so impressive!

For families the main drawcard of AquaPulse is the fantastic Aquatic Splashpark for little kids and waterslides for older kids and adults. Both facilities are included in the standard entry price.

The Aquatic Splashpark features twin slides, two tube slides, water cannons, water spray features, tipping cones and a giant tipping bucket that creates a massive wash of water to the delighted shrieks of the kids waiting below.

There are two exciting waterslides (touted to be the biggest water slides in Victoria!) which snake their way outside the building. Lady AB and I didn’t go on them as they require a height minimum of 125cm. Note kids under 10 must still be accompanied by an adult.


During school holidays they also set up inflatables in the lap pools for kids to climb over. There are five pool in total, from 50m lap pool to warm water pool to soothe aching bones. Aquapulse swimming lessons are also available for teens, adults and Seniors.


Besides the aquatic centre other facilities include a gym, sauna/spa/steam room, creche, kindergarten, osteopathy, shop and cafe. You can even host an AquaPulse birthday party.

For those who wish to visit often, the Aquapulse membership might just be the thing for you. The “Access All” membership allows you to access the werribee outdoor pool, aqua pulse gym, and more! If you’re not sure which membership is the right one for you or have questions, you can fill up the form here and they’ll be glad to help you out.

AquaPulse is a great way to spend a hot summer’s day or a cold winter’s afternoon, all for a very reasonable price. If your kids are adrenaline junkies and old enough for the waterslides then you could stay all day!
