Welcome to SWELL Palmerston

We look forward to welcoming you to the centre and providing you with the best wellbeing and leisure experiences possible!

Get Ready, Palmerston!

The Swimming, Wellness, Events, Leisure and Lifestyle (SWELL) project is soon to be completed. The upgrade has included a refurbished 50-metre pool, a 20m warm water program pool, a splash and play area, an events area, basketball half-court, new and improved accessible toilets and change rooms, and a two-storey aquatic adventure play structure. 

The proposed upgrades will include a purpose-built learn to swim and wellness program pool and family-friendly activity features for all ages and abilities, as well as an adventure play zone unlike any others in the Top End.

Early stages of construction commenced in August 2022, and construction is anticipated to be completed in November followed by an opening in December 2023. During this time, the youth drop-in centre and the SWELL Palmerston Gym will be temporarily closed as they undergo renovations, including a roof replacement. 

On completion, SWELL will continue to have free entry until 2026.

The project is funded by the Australian Government, with $5 million secured through the Building Better Regions Fund, alongside the Northern Territory Government and City of Palmerston.
