Aquatic Facility | Outdoor Swimming Pool

Faith Leech Aquatic Centre is a competition-standard swimming facility that is also a family-friendly centre.

It has four heated pools – a 50-metre lap swimming pool, shaded toddlers’ pool, intermediate pool and diving pool. The intermediate pool has an accessible ramp and the 50-metre pool has an accessible chair lift. The diving pool has a 1-metre and a 3-metre springboard.

Bring a picnic or use the barbecues, enjoy a coffee at Waves café, find a shady spot or visit when the Hoobee Tubee water slide is open.
