  • 25m indoor warm-water pool

  • Spa and sauna
  • Café
  • Large gym with new state-of-the-art equipment
  • Fitness group areas

Splash Pad

The main attraction for kids would have to be the outdoor water play know as the Splash Pad. Featuring tipping buckets, water slides, water cannons and lots of other features that spray water all around the splash pad, the kids will just love it!

The Splash Pad water is heated to the same temp as the indoor pool – 30/31 degrees. So it’s even pleasant to use on a rainy or overcast day – with the added bonus of probably being slightly less busy on those types of days.

Another fab feature we know you’ll love is the Splash Pad has a party room off to the side! Parties are for a minimum of 10 children to a maximum of 20 children, up to 14 years of age. They run on weekends only, for 2 hours and are fully catered.

The Splash Pad operates from October to March:

  • Monday – Friday (School Term) 3pm – 5:30pm
  • Monday – Friday (School Holidays) 10am – 5:30pm
  • Saturday and Sunday 10am – 5.30pm

Entry Fees (includes access to Pool and Splash Pad)

  • Spectators: $3
  • Swimming $8.20
  • Family Swimming: $24.80 (5 immediate family members. max 2 adults)
  • Children under 4 with a full-paying adult: FREE

Waves Cafe

Finally a decent cafe in a public pool! They have a good variety of food including lots of healthy options, nice coffee, and a pleasant space in which is only a few metres away from the pool.
