'This Girl Can - Victoria' is all about empowering women across the state to get active and overcome feelings of judgement.

From August 2018 - June 2020 Council was successful in receiving a VicHealth grant to promote the 'This Girl Can - Victoria' campaign to women in our community, and encourage women to get involved in physical activity.

During this period Women's Only Swimming was held at Aquamoves on a monthly basis between 5.30pm - 8.30pm.

Between 2018 – 2020, 160 people attended Women’s Only Swimming sessions on average. Council continued to provide monthly Women’s Only Swimming from March 2021 – May 2021, averaging 73 people attending. This is a great outcome and encouraging to see women enjoying our facilities. We hope to discover how we can continue to best support women in our community to be active following the success of this initiative.

The cost to attend Aquamoves for Women's Only Swimming:

  • Adult: $6.50
  • Child: $4.30
  • Swim/Spa/Sauna: $8.50
  • Group Swim: $17.50 (2 adults and 3 children)

Boys under the age of five were permitted access. Whilst Women’s Only Swimming sessions are being held, access to Aquamoves gym and group fitness is closed.
