Bay Pavilions

Amplifying performance, on stage and underwater

Scroll down

Oil and water do mix. A new arts, aquatic and leisure centre in the heart of the Eurobodalla Shire, Bay Pavilions gives the community an exciting place to play, explore their talents and share their skills.

An iconic new gateway for the region, Bay Pavilions, the Batemans Bay Regional Aquatic & Arts Leisure Centre, is set to become a drawcard for sports, tourism and regional arts programs.

Working in conjunction with Donovan Payne Architects, we met the challenges of co-locating performance and aquatic functions by creating two distinct pavilions. One houses three pools, a gymnasium and waterslide tower, while the other boasts a 350 seat black box theatre, back of house facilities, rehearsal room and art studios. The two pavilions connected by a streamlined central building, complete with main reception, foyer and administration areas.

With ecologically sustainable development principles embedded in the design, and an architectural language inspired by a strong sense of place, generations of communities are set to experience the social benefits of lay, performance and expression at Bay Pavilions.
