JOONDALUP’S indoor wave pool, Aloha Surfhouse, has acquired a liquor licence.

Since opening in January last year, the recreation centre has attracted local surfers, climbers and birthday party goers.

The licence will allow Aloha to hold barrel sessions on weekends and more themed events such as retro surf parties, ladies nights and dark climbing sessions.

“Having a liquor licence and a new cafe menu will certainly enhance the customer experience at Aloha,” general manager John Lowe said.

“We will now be able to provide more entertainment and increase the amount of time people stay at the venue.

“Over the next 12 months our customers will be able to celebrate festive occasions such as New Year’s Eve and Australia Day at Aloha, as well as other significant events such as sporting finals and internationally recognised festivals.

“And anyone looking for a memorable Christmas function or private party will not be disappointed!”

Mr Lowe said as the only indoor surfing venue in Australia, and with more than 30 climbing attractions, people knew the Winton Road Aloha Surfhouse mainly for activity-based entertainment.

But the original business plan was to provide a family friendly, surf-inspired environment which would become a social hub for people to visit regularly and enjoy.
