Multipurpose pool

Our multipurpose pool will reopen on Monday 9 November.

Please note the multipurpose pool may be cooler than normal for the first week of reopening due to the completion of recent infrastructure works. The pool needs to be reheated gradually to prevent damage.

We out doing our best to reheat the pool as quickly as possible. We will update you once the pool is at its usual temperature.

Steam room and spa

The steam room and spa remain closed at this stage as per government restrictions.

Children’s gymnastics and swimming lessons

Gymnastics and swimming lessons are back in a limited capacity for a six-week block in Term 4. Children who were enrolled in Term 1, 2020 will be prioritised and offered a place in our programs first. Any places remaining will be communicated to the broader community on Friday 6 November.
