Fitness centre: yes there is a large gym/fitness centre. You can also learn to swim and do all sorts of swim squad training at Waves.

Cafe: Yes, Waves cafe is in the foyer and can be accessed from inside, plus there is also an outside takeaway window

Car park: Yes, it is free and there is no time limit, but it can be busy in summer.

Directions: Coming by car, it is much better to take Excelsior Avenue from Old Northern Road, as there are traffic lights at this intersection. And also use the same route on the way back.

Old Northern Road can be very busy and there isn’t any roundabout close by. If you are coming from Windsor Road and you need to change direction, you can always use the roundabout of Olive St, near Stockland Baulkham Hills. Both Northern Road and Windsor Road are very busy roads.

Nearby bus stop: Yes, several. M61 departs from QVB (Sydney CBD), stops at Old Northern Road in front of TAFE Baulkham Hills. Turn on the left (Oxley Ave) and you will find Waves Fitness and Aquatic Centre after walking 5 minutes downhill.

Nearby station: Castle Hill train station.

Toilets/Baby change: Yes.

Playground: Yes, outside the aquatic centre, next to the car park (not fenced).

Extras nearby:

Playground at the Alfred Henry Memorial Reserve: you will find Alfred Henry Memorial Reserve playground on the left hand side of Waves. The playground is not big, but it has enough elements to keep primary school-aged children entertained.

Roxborough Park Rose Garden: this is a lovely manicured garden, literally, full of roses. The garden has more than 100 varieties of roses. Your children might feel like “Alice in Wonderland” with a bit of imagination.

Mum’s report:  Waves Fitness and Aquatic Centre is not a secret among locals. If you are a mum living in the North-shore Sydney with super active kids, you should keep in mind Waves.

Especially if your kids are bored of going to the same place during school holidays.
