The wading pool is 31 degrees; typically used for rehabilitation exercises, recreational swimming, and lower level swimming lessons. The toddler’s pool, heated to 27 degrees, is ideal for toddlers and their caregivers to swim and wade about.
The centre also has a number of other recreational facilities including barbecue rentals and a beach volleyball court. Amenities include a car park, coach parking, parents’ room, picnic area, and public toilets. Assistance for the disabled is available on site and free Wi-Fi is even provided within the centre.
A variety of swimming programs are offered for all ages and levels; each with their own corresponding prices for enrolment.
Recent upgrades and renovations have made the Mount Gambier Aquatic Centre one of the greenest pools in the country. This is due to the instalment of a 68kW solar system which was installed on the rooftop, which is now responsible for generating all the electricity used in the centre.
The Mount Gambier Aquatic Centre is located at 5A Margaret Street, Mount Gambier. It’s open 6 days a week from October through March.
