Our Clubs

All our Clubs are built on the solid foundation of our vision ‘to make a significant contribution to the quality of community life’.

As a collective, we are an organisation who loves nothing more than giving to our local communities in a way that is deliberate, passionate and with commitment. We recognise the importance of our clubs exhibiting their own personality and being relevant to the community in which they sit.

Mingara Recreation Club

Nestled between the frantically paced major cities of Sydney and Newcastle, the Central Coast is a welcome, relaxed pause. Life here is a little slower and we are blessed to have some of Australia’s most spectacular coastline right in our own backyard.

Salty-haired, thong-clad, tanned, sun-kissed crowds, adorn the coastline from Lakes Beach in the North to Pearl Beach in the South. Locals proudly show off their favourite swimming spots, coastal walks and cycleways to visitors who are awestruck at the natural beauty on show every day on the Coast.

Mingara’s little piece of this magnificence is Tumbi Umbi, a semi-rural area with a coastal vibe that hugs the shores of Tuggerah Lakes.  The original custodians of our land, the Darkinjung people, knew the area as ‘a place of much water’.  Mingara Recreation Club itself is the heart of the community in this area. It’s the place where you are warmly welcomed and will find locals who can escape the everyday with great coffee, cocktails, craft beer or the finest Australian wine; it’s where they dine out with family and friends, celebrate life’s milestones or simply relax with live entertainment. It’s a place to escape, to laugh, to be entertained, relax and indulge… Life’s Great at Mingara!

The Westport Club

Sitting right alongside the beautiful Hastings River in Port Macquarie is The Westport Club. Picture postcard perfect…you can watch dolphins glide past the window and admire the sparkling waters of the river and ocean beyond!

The Westport Club is loved by locals and as the town swells during peak holiday periods, tourists also make themselves at home relaxing and creating memorable moments with family and friends. ‘Westport’ as it is affectionately known by locals, is a foodie paradise with its waterside dining options including our casual dining restaurant, Aqua, and our café, Hastings Coffee Co.. The club also features gaming, TAB, Keno, promotions, and Event Centre and the very popular upstairs whiskey and cocktail bar, ‘Jimmy’s Bar and Lounge’ featuring incredible coastal views.

The Westport Club is the heart of its local community and our commitment to make a significant contribution to the quality of community life continues to make a positive impact through its support of community, sporting, education, health and welfare organisations.

Springwood Sports Club

Located in the mountain village of Springwood, within the world-heritage listed Blue Mountains, is Springwood Sports Club. Springwood is surrounded by the history of the indigenous communities who have cared for this incredible natural environment and the bygone days of adventurous explorers navigating the unforgiving bushland and terrain of the Blue Mountains.

Springwood Sports Club pays homage to village life and the gathering of communities, family and friends who say ‘cheers’ over a beer, coffee or a meal, and who love a chat and a laugh. The team at ‘Gather’, create home-style food that is hearty and welcoming. Its reputation for quality, fresh meals, makes it a favourite casual dining choice for members and visitors.

Freshly brewed coffee is crafted using a unique blend, ethically sourced and made with love by the team who are expert Baristas.

The Greens, The Entrance

The Greens, The Entrance is the most recent club to join the Mingara Leisure Group family. In March 2020, an electrical fire destroyed the Club and we are currently working on plans to rebuild the club house for members and the local community.

Located on the beautiful Central Coast, not too far from Mingara, The Greens is situated in an idyllic location right near The Entrance and Blue Bay. A holiday-makers playground with stunning beaches, lakes and plenty of outdoor activity. The area has been a well-known and popular tourist destination for decades.

We have our sights firmly set in ensuring The Greens will once again become a local neighbourhood club, the place locals can rely on for great quality, good value food, coffee, TAB facilities, gaming and of course their favourite beers on tap. Despite our current situation, our bowling community and bowling greens are still very active with both social and competitive play. We look forward to strengthening our position in the development of bowls as a sport.

Being the newest acquisition within Mingara Leisure Group, our team are emerging, honing their skills and helping us to transform the entire offering at The Greens, The Entrance, with a focus on creating memorable experiences for members and visitors.
