As per Council’s exhibited Fees and Charges, The Hills Shire Council has gone ‘cashless’, meaning Council no longer accepts payments by cash or by cheque at any of our facilities, including Waves.
We're excited to announce that Waves will open to the community in September. Please pre-register your interest in fitness centre memberships and swim school enrolments using the online enquiry forms provided on this website.
