1. Shellharbour Workers' Club has big plans and they are getting bigger by the day!

  2. Our 'big plans' are well underway!

    In 2014 Shellharbour Workers’ Club launched the Master Plan for the development of the Shellharbour site over the next 20 years. The planning process behind our ‘big plans’ has taken time to formulate but now we're starting to see the plans take shape.

    Coming soon:
    • Construction of the childcare centre is underway!
    • We've submitted a DA for our newest asset, The Imperial at Clifton, which we will be developing into an amazing new venue.
    • The Shellharbour Club will be undergoing some venue upgrades including a well-deserved facelift for the Sports Bar.

  3. Childcare Centre

    Construction of the Childcare Centre on the south west bounday of the Shellharbour site is well underways. The new Childcare Centre will provide childcare for up to 120 children in the local community and will be operate by The Grove Academy under a long term lease with Shellharbour Workers' Club.

    The Award Winning Grove Academy provides early childhood services specialising in providing quality care and education for children from birth to five years and is located in four locations within the Sydney and Illawarra regions, including Albion Park. The Childcare Centre include state-of-the-art facilities, qualified and caring early childhood educators with a focus on landscaped outdoor play areas. The Grove Academy specialises in providing a nurturing environment for children with a focus on natural play spaces.

    The project is estimated to be completed in December 2017 ready for opening in January 2018.



    Shellharbour Workers Club Ltd purchased The Imperial at Clifton in March 2015 at public auction. Many people will remember the iconic old pub that traded as the Imperial Hotel from way back in the late 1800s. The Club will develop the Clifton property into a vibrant, unique and multifunctional venue that responds to the needs of the local community and helps to promote the Illawarra area as a tourist destination. The development of the property will aim to optimise its unique location and will acknowledge the past history of the building and the area.

    Early stage works commenced in May in preparation for the future building works which will occur once the design works are completed and approved by Wollongong City Council. Welsh and Major Architects have been appointed to work on the project.
