DERBY

The wide variety of facilities at Derby offer great recreational opportunities for residents. A new recreation centre completed in 2001 contains multi use courts and squash courts. Adjacent to this facility are tennis and netball courts, bowling rinks, race course, rodeo grounds and an 18 hole fully grassed and reticulated golf course.

Additional facilities in the town include a hall for badminton, 25 metre swimming pool set in landscaped gardens, pistol shooting range, speedway and ovals
for cricket and football.

FITZROY CROSSING

Fitzroy Crossing’s leisure centre is combined with its oval and netball and basketball courts. There is a rodeo ground and the sandy bed of the Fitzroy River is used in the dry season for many unique events such as horizontal bungy jumping and dune buggy racing.
