Eurobodalla Shire Council

The $69 million Bay Pavilions is one of the largest and certainly most unique facilities in Australia. Opening in mid-2022 after receiving $51 million in grants from State and Federal Governments, the Bay Pavilions is a place of joy, a place of community and a place of well-being for body and mind. It is where art meets swimming, where workshops meet workouts, where drama meets play and where morning meets night.

Aligned Leisure manages all facets of the operation, from live performances for the 350-seat theatre to learn to swim programs and the entire fitness and wellness products.

The Eurobodalla community can also connect at the Narooma Swimming Centre and the Moruya War Memorial Pool which forms part of Aligned Leisure’s engagement.


Eurobodalla Arts and Leisure Manager

Chris moved from Sydney to the far south coast of NSW 20 years ago and is passionate about all things Eurobodalla. Having been in local government for over 20 years managing teams and community facilities, Chris enjoys the role of serving the community and working with groups and individuals to see them thrive and succeed to achieve their goals.

Chris has recently become Manager of Arts and Leisure for the Eurobodalla contract which includes three sites at Narooma, Moruya and the newly constructed Bay Pavilions in Batemans Bay. With a personal aim to bring the best out of our staff, Chris recognises the fortunate position we are in where we can increase the quality of culture and leisure in our local areas, and improve the overall wellbeing of our friends, families and wider community.

A place of joy, a place of community and a place of well-being for body and mind.

Since Aligned Leisure’s commencement in 2016, not only has Council been incredibly satisfied as to the performance of the Cardinia Leisure Facilities, but their genuine partnership approach has led to many improved community health outcomes. Yes, growth metrics have increased across the board, but our partnership is more significant than just this focus.

Their transparency in all areas demonstrates their desire for genuine partnership. We look forward to a long-lasting relationship with Aligned Leisure.
