Calling For Expressions of Interest

The Hinchinbrook Aquatic Centre is available for a new operator to lease or contract services to Hinchinbrook Shire Council in driving increased usage and capturing new opportunities for this strong community asset. Expressions of interest are being called  for operators who can provide a holistic service by way of a lease arrangement, or contracting some or all of the services that can be offered with this important community infrastructure. The expression of interest process enables Council to evaluate the best method of providing service and value to the community before moving to a tender process.

 This centrally located facility is home to the Herbert River Swim Club and services the numerous schools in the district, providing for healthy lifestyles and wellbeing in this tropical locale.  Expressions of interest close on Friday 11 June 2021 at 5.00pm. A copy of the Expression of Interest package can be downloaded from Council’s website and enquiries made by email to council@hinchinbrook.qld.gov.au or by phone (07) 4776 4600.
