HBF Stadium is an elite 4000-seat aquatic facility. The structure is well-known for its two large barrel-vaulted structures with exposed white support columns, supporting the roof externally.
The building is a world-class swimming venue with four pools. Inside the soaring and distinctive aerodrome inspired building is an indoor eight-lane, 50-metre long and two-metre deep championship pool, plus diving pool. Outside is an eight-lane 50-metre warm-up/cool-down pool, and a ten-lane 50-metre long and two-metre deep pool with seating capacity for 10,000 spectators, which has held two FINA World Swimming Championships in 1991 and 1998.
As well as the swimming facilities, the building also has a 5,000 seat multi-purpose auditorium space, that has been the home of the Perth Wildcats basketball team, held countless concerts and many other events.
With support facilities, including gymnasium, aerobics, strength training, restaurant, function rooms and administration offices, HBF Stadium is more than a key part of WA’s elite sporting establishment, it’s an important community centre for all people.
