Can I book lap swimming?
While the facility has been closed as a result of restrictions during lockdown, we have taken the opportunity to undertake critical roof repair works in the pool hall. These are continuing at the moment due to delays to the construction works as a result of restrictions.
This means that our pools have not yet been able to open in line with the easing of restrictions so far, and will remain temporarily closed for a little while longer yet. Works expected to be completed in the coming weeks and we look forward to sharing an official reopening date with you as soon as we can.
Please keep an eye out for further updates on our pool opening times on our website and Facebook page.

In line with the Victorian Government's road map and guidelines restrictions have now been lifted for one-on-one hydrotherapy. This service is currently unavailable due to roof works currently underway at the moment.
