Beat the Heat in Greater Springfield’s Robelle Domain and Orion Lagoon waterparks

Splash Around in Greater Springfield’s Waterpark at Orion Lagoon

Called the ‘Green Lungs’ of Greater Springfield, the Robelle Domain is a luscious open space parkland playing host to one of the largest public waterparks in the Southern Hemisphere. Let your child’s imagination run wild while beating the heat by diving head first into the cool new water lagoon these school holidays. Treasure those precious moments and make lasting memories together at Robelle Domain.

The Greater Springfield waterpark at Robelle Domain features 150 metres of waterways running past the inner-city retail precinct of Springfield Central, making it the perfect day out for the whole family.

Fun for the Whole Family at Robelle Domain’s Waterpark

If you are lost for ideas of what do you with your family over the school holidays or on the weekend, we have got an idea for you. The Springfield Waterpark offers a little piece of paradise for each member of the family.

While the scorching summer heat and electricity bills rise, keep cool at Robelle Domain. While your children splash around in the lagoon with their friends, you can indulge in the air conditioning of one of the nearby cafes and/or restaurants.

Orion Lagoon and The Springfield Water Park Makes Waves

What was originally estimated to be 100,000 per year now looks more like 600,000.  In October, Council estimated the crowd to be more than 55,000 with interest in the South Bank size and style waterway well beyond earlier expectation.

Since in the initial opening of Robelle Domain and the Springfield water park at Orion Lagoon, businesses surrounding the lagoon have reported an average 35 per cent or more surge in sales.

“We know that people are attracted to water and I’m happy to report our CBD with the lagoon is becoming a real bonanza for all involved,” said Maha Sinnathamby the founder and visionary behind Greater Springfield.

The opening of the $154 million extension to the Orion Springfield Shopping precinct located directly across the road is sharing in the excitement. Restaurants are brimming, and the massive Events Cinema complex is also a crowd puller.
