You asked and we listened. After months of hard work, we are pleased to be launching the Leisure Access Victoria App (LAVA) Website to provide information about access at our local recreation facilities.

We hope you find the LAVA website of value to you, and welcome your feedback about your experience using it (which you may send in the contact form on the Home Page). This will help us improve the site as it evolves.
