Conditions of Entry

About the Pool

Our indoor 25-meter swimming pool is heated all year round and sits between 30-32 degrees celsius (depending on the season). Its main uses are swimming lessons, lap swimming, recreational swimming, and walking for gentle exercise. We are also pleased to offer a pool hoist for those with accessibility needs (King Fisher Pool Hoist, holds up to 150kg) as well as shallow steps with a handrail.

Quieter Pool Times

If you would like to use the pool at a quieter time, we recommend you attend between 1:00pm - 3:00pm during weekdays (Monday - Friday). Please be aware that we are closed on Sundays, and on Public Holidays we are open from 1:00pm - 4:00pm unless otherwise stated.

The following timetable may also help you plan your visit during the school term, however during school holidays we can't guarantee that these normally quieter times will be the same.
