I've been going to WLC since my children were quite young - about 19 years now. It's a great place if you have young children, especially for birthday parties and to keep them active in winter or on rainy days. Management changed in the last few years and the whole place has become much friendlier and more efficient. As an... More

The Willoughby Leisure Centre is a terrific community asset, offering a broad selection of activities for any level of fitness. It encompasses a large swimming pool (with a small kiddies area), as well as indoor and outdoor netball courts, that double up for a variety of activities. There is ample parking, both immediately outside the gym and a short distance... More

Paid for spa & sauna for the reason of using the sauna. Sauna in-operable. When this was brought up to management that they should refund my money as I did not use the facilities due to maintenance issues. Sorry sir you have to pay for entry! Poor service guys will be using north Sydney from now on

We have been frequent users of the swimming pool at Willoughby Leisure Centre, and it has been the place where our kids have learnt to swim. With an extensive and popular swim school this is always busy. There is also a kids pool, leisure area with slide and lanes for serious swimming. What more do you need?

Great pool just need to check lane availability before going as there is swim school, squads and sometimes school carnivals. Also avoid Saturday as there is sport on the oval next door and it gets very busy. The centre has good change facilities and good parking.

We went to the Willoughby Leisure Centre to swim some laps and I loved that there was plenty of space for us but also some great facilities for kids (slides, an inflatable obstacle course and pools of every depth). Definitely a wonderful spot for families.
