Our pools are a great place to bring your family and friends for some fun any time of the year!

A brand new 50 metre indoor heated pool opened in May 2015. The 50 metre indoor pool is 1.85m deep and is suitable for competent swimmers only.

The centre has a range of aquatic facilities for everyone to enjoy including 25 metre lap pool, a learn-to-swim pool and a multipurpose pool with adjacent spa and steam room.

The pool hall is used by a variety of users for recreational activities, sports carnivals, exercise classes, swimming lessons and much more! We pride ourselves on providing a safe and stimulating experience for everyone. 

Please be sure to closely supervise any child in your care while you are enjoying our pool. Our lifeguards are there to save lives when required while parents are responsible for supervising children at all times.
