About The Waves

Our Mission

To be a total entertainment provider, bringing communities together at quality sporting and recreation facilities within a family environment.

Our Vision

The Waves aims to be a premier club of Queensland, providing an excellent offering to our members, guests and the community, both now and into the future. 

Our History

First opened on 19 October 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 Angelina 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 2020, resulting in the ultra-modern, beautiful club you see today. Our membership has grown too from those early times to what is now over 70,000 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. The Waves employs over one hundred staff, supports sixteen local sporting clubs, and contributes to a countless number of community events, charities, benefactors, and projects each year, donating over $1.43M directly to local individuals and businesses in the 2018/2019 financial year alone. 

Whether you are a visiting guest or a valued member, we welcome you to our multi-award winning club. We invite you to award winning 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.
