Doug Ellis Pool Update

The Doug Ellis Swimming Pool roof replacement project has successfully reached the one month mark, and is on track to open within its initial project timeline.

The roof of the aquatic area has been removed with the new roof to be installed soon.

The main pool and leisure will re-open on Monday 20 October, at the commencement of the Term 4 program, with the variable pool opening on Monday 27 October.



The essential maintenance works at the pool will also result in the re-tiling of the 25m Variable Swimming Pool.

This project will deliver important updates to the facility, including:
  • Addressing common defects associated with the ageing pool roof.
  • Upgrading the air handling systems to increase air circulation and customer comfort in the pool hall.
  • Re-tiling the Variable Pool in line with recent refurbishments to the main pool and spa.
  • Providing an improved aquatic environment including the installation of acoustic wall panelling to decrease ambient noise.


Monash Sport will be communicating updates to staff, members and facility users regarding public access availability throughout the project, and looks forward to seeing Monash staff, students and the wider community enjoy the updated aquatic facilities.
