Outdoor Aquatics (Summer fun)

We open the outdoor area on days where the temperature is FORECAST by the Bureau of Meteorology to be 26C or more, after 3:00pm on school days and after 12:00pm on weekends and public holidays from December 1st until March 31st.
Our 25 metre outdoor pool is 0.9m to 1.2m deep. It is not heated, although in summer the water can reach 23-24C.
The toddler pool is 0.3m deep at its deepest point and is not heated. Our free barbecue facilities are available for all to use.
(As at Jan 2015)
SplashDown is held at certain times and provides unlimited use of the slide and inflatables. This is $8.80 (including general entry). At other times the slide is $1 per slide.
Very extensive range of indoor and outdoor pools. There is a frog slide for toddlers and a 80m waterslide for 4 years and older. It is not possible to have children on your lap on the waterslide. It is necessary to buy separate tickets for the waterslide. The slide only operates for limited hours and the allocation of tickets can be exhausted very quickly. Therefore do not have your heart set on going down the waterslide because that may not be possible at all times. The slide is fully enclosed but there is plenty of light inside and the ride is quite slow.
When there are no lessons or parties, the program pool is quiet and warm. However, be careful when getting into the pool. When we were there, the pool had been overfilled and the plastic decking lining the inside of the pool floated loose. When I put my foot down on the decking it gave way and resulted in quite bad abrasions and bruises on my lower leg. I have no way of knowing whether this was an isolated incident or a general malaise about safety.
Outside is a wooden boat containing a large picnic table, deck chairs, BBQ, shelters and tables.
