Updates to our fees and charges

Yarra Leisure is dedicated to continual improvement of our facilities and maintaining the highest standard of programs and services.

As part of the annual budget process, Yarra City Council recently revised fees and charges across its services. To ensure we maintain these high standards and keep improving our facilities, a small increase to our fees and charges has been introduced.

Please read on to see when these changes will be implemented and the planned facility improvements for the coming year.

Bo Li wins Bronze at the 2018 WFF Universe!

Yarra Leisure Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer Bo Li (pictured far right) has won bronze at the 2018 WFF Universe competition for over 30's Sports Model. 

He flew to Singapore last weekend to compete in the competition after winning the national title.

It takes extraordinary strength, discipline and determination to compete with the world's best – let alone win a medal – so we hope you'll join us in congratulating Bo next time you see him in the gym.

 *** Way to go, Bo! We couldn't be more proud of you. ***
