New Group Fitness Timetable - September 2022

Our new group fitness timetable started on Monday, 19 September 2022!

Gym users, group fitness class attendees, and those playing on the courts are asked to access the building through the white double external doors at the rear of court 1, where an interim front counter has been set up. Our Recreation Centre team has set up the interim gym and group fitness facilities on court 3. Rec Centre parking is available behind the Recreation Centre in Gloucester Park.

Be sure to book ahead to secure your spot at membership.amrshire.wa.gov.au/group

Semi Finals Footy and Recreation Centre Opening Times

Good luck to the Hawks League and Reserve teams playing in the Semi Finals at Gloucester Park this weekend. 

Due to the large amounts of spectators at the football, limited parking space is available and South West Football League will be stationed at the single-entry point. A ticket is required to enter. Game times are as follows: Reserves 12.05pm and League 2.10pm.

The Margaret River Recreation Centre operating hours will change for Saturday, 17 September and will be open from 7am to 9am and then closed for the rest of the day. Classes available include Virtual Core at 7am, Express Circuit at 8am and Virtual RPM at 8am.

We appreciate your understanding.

New Gym and Group Fitness Opens Monday 5th September

As the Shire is about to undertake the redevelopment of the recreation centre; our team has relocated a few key services:

New entrance:

The new entrance to the recreation centre is at the rear of the building through the white doors. A new members only entrance is also being finalised, which will lead directly into the new gym and fitness area via access from your membership tag (more info will come out on this once installed).


Creche is at the scout hall, which is located at the rear of the skate park (between the skate park and the footy oval). Our IT Department are still working on a few items to enable check-in and payment at the scout hall, so in the mean time, please drop your children at the creche and pay / check-in at the new front counter at the rec centre. 

Group Fitness: 

Group Fitness Classes will now run in the new Group Fitness Room on Court 3. All virtual and instructor run classes are now back to normal schedule as of Monday. Please check-in with front counter staff for access into the room; until the members only access is finalised. 

Group Fitness Room


The new gym is now on Court 3 and looks incredible! 

With more space, we have added in some extra items and mofidifed the layout. Please note the mirrors will be reinstalled in the new gym this Tuesday, so there may be a couple of hours during the day when the gym is unavailable on Tuesday, as Contractors move through the area. Please check-in with front counter staff for access into the gym; until the members only access is finalised. 

New Gym Layout


All gym memberships that were automatically suspended on Monday 22 August due to the closure, will now be unsuspended and ready for use Monday 5 September. 

Revised Opening Hours

As of July 1, the recreation centre will be modifying hours until 31 July.

  • Entire centre will open from 6am (previously 5:30am)
  • Pool will close at 7pm weekdays (previously 7:30pm)
  • Entire centre will close at 8pm (during July school holidays only)

These changes will be in effect from 1 July - 31 July, and reviewed during July. The changes to hours are based on reduced attendance rates during these off-peak times, and will greatly assist in maintaining service levels of the pool until closure.
