The operations at Bluewater Leisure have been significant impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We appreciate and thank our users for their ongoing support and understanding while we continue to adapt to the necessary changes under the State Government COVID-19 Public Health Orders. 

Colac Otway Shire is a great community, and we are proud to be able to continue to provide access to the Bluewater facility during these uncertain times. 


Following the announced changes to the Public Health Orders in Victoria, from 11.59pm tonight Friday 22 April 2022 Bluewater patrons are no longer required to:

  • Provide evidence of vaccination status
  • Check in to the venue

We understand that these requirements and changes to operations may exclude some patrons from being able to access the centre, however, we ask you to please understand that in order for Bluewater Leisure Centre to continue operating, we must adhere to the State Government COVID-19 restrictions in Regional Victoria.

Whilst we understand that constant changes to Bluewater operations under the restrictions can be confusing and frustrating at times, we ask you to please consider that our staff at Bluewater are doing their best and deserve to be treated with respect and kindness. Aggressive, threatening and intimidating behaviour will not be tolerated and may result in your eviction from the centre and your membership being suspended or cancelled.

We understand you may like to provide feedback on your experiences at Bluewater and we ask that you to do so via the following means:


Stay kind & stay safe, The Bluewater Team
