The one-minute virtual tour, which you can view below, offers an internal glimpse of the facility, which will include an indoor sports hall capable of holding show court events, allied health, an outdoor lap and competition pool, an eight-lane leisure lap pool, a water slide, a water playground and a hydrotherapy pool.

The facility, located at Cockburn Central West, will also have 400 car parking bays plus 100 bays for overflow. Community playing fields will be delivered by LandCorp.

For the Dockers there will be a medical/sports science area, change rooms, rehab and gymnasium space, meeting rooms, a lecture theatre and space for the club’s retail centre.

There will also be car parking space and club administration facilities.

Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the facility would be one of the best in Australia, boosting local employment, attracting more visitors and would cater for a growing community.

The release of the video followed a decision a week earlier by the council to allow earthworks to take place at the site during a usually prohibited period between October and March.

The decision will mean engineers representing LandCorp can carry out bulk earthworks from next month until December 2014 ahead of the start of construction on the centre early next year.
