We wouldn’t be here without them, so say G’day next time you’re in!

Our lifeguards are trained in a range of water safety, swimming, lifesaving and resuscitation skills. They have the skills and knowledge to handle a variety of situations. Above all, our lifeguards save lives.

Our lifeguards are an important part of our pools and are here to make sure everyone stays safe in and around the water.

Please follow our lifeguards’ directions to make sure everyone is staying safe and having fun!

Interested in working as a lifeguard at the Ballarat Aquatic and Lifestyle Centre or one of our outdoor pools in summer? Keep an eye on the City of Ballarat careers page for seasonal opportunities.
