Slated for development is a childcare centre ($4.7m), hotel ($32m), aquatic and fitness centres ($8m), function centre ($4m), commercial and medical facilities ($10m) and associated multi-deck car parking facilities ($15m).  

Refurbishments to the existing club include a new VIP gaming area, auditorium, billiards and sports bars.

Liam Kelly, senior associate, The Buchan Group said the current program of works, combined with the development masterplan, would ensure the Club met the needs of a rapidly growing population.

“The Shellharbour Workers Club is an institution in the area and a leader in providing club facilities and services to members and guests,” he said.

“It has remained at the forefront of local club culture through a tradition of innovation, forward thinking and a focus on what a club can be to its community. 

“This masterplan and the works that follow will ensure the club continues to be a key provider of leisure, social and entertainment facilities in the region.
