About The Waves

Our Mission

The Waves Sports Club will strive to be a total entertainment provider to the local community, by providing and maintaining sporting and recreational facilities (for the region) within a family environment. 

Our History

First opened on October 19, 1968, the original club was solely utilised for social gatherings around bocce and soccer by early immigrant Italian farmers of Bundaberg and was so named 'Across The Waves', for that was how they travelled to Australia aboard The Angelino Lauro - across the waves of the Indian Ocean. 

Since that time The Waves has seen much growth and many changes, with the most recent redevelopment occurring in 2016, resulting in the ultra-modern, beautiful club you see today. Our membership has grown too from those early times to what is now over 45,000 members from Bundaberg, Australia and all over the world.

From humble beginnings The Waves now stands as an icon of Bundaberg, not only in its presence, but also within the local community, employing over one hundred staff, supporting fifteen local sporting clubs and contributing to a countless number of community events and projects each year, with over $1.3M directly donated to local individuals and businesses in the 2016/17 financial year.

Whether you are a visiting guest or a valued member, we welcome you to our multi-award winning club. We invite you to enjoy fine dining, free, weekly entertainment, social activities, promotions, game shows, children's play facilities and much, much more. We are Bundaberg's truly integrated community club and a place where you are guaranteed to experience real fun, every day.
