The Goldfields Oasis Recreation Centre has been announced as Quality Accredited Business of the Year at the 2023 AUSactive National Awards Gala on Friday in Melbourne.

Commonly regarded as one of the most prestigious national awards, the Quality Accredited Business of the Year award recognises the business that received the highest score in the 2022-2023 AUSactive Quality Business Program, an accreditation that acknowledges extraordinary quality and service in the health and fitness industry.

Receiving re-accreditation in July this year, the Oasis was praised for exceeding industry standards within the health and safety risk management pillars and in development and collaboration.

The centre also received the highest grade for community involvement and delivery of inclusive programs and services.

Mayor John Bowler congratulated the Oasis team for being recognised amongst their peers nationally and acknowledged their ongoing effort to deliver exemplary health and fitness services.

“It’s wonderful to see the City’s continued commitment to providing a high-quality community facility that exceeds industry standards.”

“To receive the highest score nationally means our facility and services are comparable with some of the best in the country, even our metropolitan counterparts,” he said.

“Being recognised as the Quality Accredited Business of the Year is a testament to the dedication of the entire Oasis team, who go above and beyond to provide industry-leading service excellence, quality services, and fantastic community events and programs.”

The Oasis was also a finalist for several other categories at this year’s AUSactive Awards Gala, including the Healthy Council Award, Leisure Centre of the Year, and Multiservice Business of the Year.

The Oasis received AUSactive accreditation in 2018, being one of the first regional recreation centres to obtain such recognition.

Re-accreditation is conducted every three years, in addition to working collaboratively with the AUSactive Business Program to ensure facilities are maintained and adhere to current industry standards.
