Our History

Belgravia Leisure began in 1974 as Austgolf Management, operating golf courses, function venues and driving ranges across Australia. Belgravia Group acquired Austgolf Management in 1985 to become one of the first Belgravia Group companies. 

By 1990, Belgravia Leisure was formed following the acquisition of Leisure Management and Marketing and the Genesis Health Club chain partnership. Belgravia Leisure Group was formed in 2006 following the acquisition of Corporate Health Management. At the same time, Belgravia Leisure reached a milestone with 50 centres under its management nationally. 

Only two years later, the company was renamed Belgravia Health and Leisure Group to reflect the direction of growth and diversification from previous years.

In 2008, Hepburn Bathhouse and Spa became Belgravia Leisure’s first-day spa under its management. In 2013, Belgravia Leisure secured its first alpine contract with Lake Mountain Resort.

New Zealand

In 2015, Belgravia Leisure expanded internationally to New Zealand, managing four aquatic and leisure sites across Auckland, taking the company’s total centres under its management to over 100 sites.

Belgravia Foundation and Belgravia Foundation Aotearoa

In 2017, the Belgravia Foundation was launched in Australia to help connect people with a disability of diversity and those who experience disadvantages in sports, aquatic, fitness, recreation and health programs. More recently, in 2022, Belgravia Foundation was proudly launched in New Zealand.

Belgravia Foundation Aotearoa hosted its official launch event on Thursday, 9 June 2022. Belgravia Foundation Aotearoa is now a fully registered charity with Charities Services Ngā Ratonga Kaupapa Atawhai. The mission of the Foundation is to improve access to sports and recreation activities across New Zealand communities so that no one misses out.


In 2018, Belgravia Leisure acquired BelgraviaPRO, expanding our portfolio of assets under management to include tourism and holiday parks and a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) to provide necessary certification and qualifications across the holiday parks sector. 

After an extensive growth period, by 2022, Belgravia Leisure now partners with more than 70 local and state Government authorities, employs more than 5,500 staff and manages 220+ venues across New Zealand and Australia.
