Fostering growth of a range of partnerships such as that between the Town of Port Hedland, YMCA WA, industry and a number of State and Federal Government agencies has been integral to the development of metropolitan standard leisure facilities and services for the entire population of Port Hedland.

The recent opening of the state of the art Wanangkura Stadium and extensive redevelopment of the South Hedland Aquatic Centre is anticipated to put Port Hedland in the national spotlight as a trailblazer in recreation facility development and service delivery.

It is our intention to continue to foster new partnerships to ensure Port Hedland continues to provide innovative metropolitan standard service delivery.  If you would like to partner with the Town or Port Hedland in one of the many leisure pursuits available in this vibrant community we would love to hear from you.  Please email our Area Manager, Daniel Murphy.
