General Information


Last Day of Season 2019/20

Tuesday 17 March 2020

Active Members (Multi-Visit Pass and 12 Month Memberships) 

To all our active members (multi visit passes and 12 month) these passes under normal operation are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase.

The Centre was due to close for the season on Sun 26 April 2020, but with the closure date being brought forward to Wed 18 March 2020, the season was reduced by approximately 6 weeks.

Taking this into account and given the unprecedented circumstances, we will be extending all active memberships by another 2 months (8 weeks) as a result of this early closure.

This extension on membership is an internal process, so as an active member there is no need for any action on your behalf. When we reopen and you come in for a swim please ask our front desk staff what your new expiry is.

Unless notified otherwise, season 2020/21 is due to commence on the Sat 19 Sept 2020, and we really hope everyone will be back swimming from then.

Car Parking

The main car park for the Swimming Centre is located off Howard Tce. There is also 2 hour parking access along the west side of Howard Tce. For those with a disabled parking permit you may use the access road via Davenport Tce and park closer to the Centre. A boom gate with intercom system restricts entry to other vehicles.


All hirers need to have read and understood the 'Conditions of Hire' and complete the 'Pool Booking Form'. Schools booking carnivals must fill out the 'Pool Booking Form' and 'Carnival Booking Form'. The Centre staff require a copy of the hirer's certificate of currency.
