50 metre / 25 metre Pool
Providing a range of great options, we expect this pool to be a big hit with competition swimmers, fitness swimmers, school groups and swimming clubs. Indoor 50 metre pools are quite scarce, so this facility will get a great work out. The shallow end of the pool (starting with 1.35m depth) will be popular for learn to swim, free play and water exercise programs. The pool has a moveable boom that can create 16 x 25 metre lanes, allowing the flexibility around our programs and ensuring that our members and casuals have plenty of lap swimming space.
Learn to Swim Pool
Specifically catering for beginner and intermediate swimmers, this dedicated pool will allow tuition to all ages and abilities. Swimmers can enjoy separate change facilities and large groups are advantaged by separate entry facilities. Learning to swim is bound to be a great experience.
Leisure and Toddler Pools
Fun. Fun. Fun. Water sprays, geysers and waterfalls – what could be more fun for toddlers and youngsters alike? And don’t worry parents, we haven’t forgotten about you. There will be some great vantage points to enjoy watching and supervising your child/children as they enjoy all kinds of water activities that will keep them entertained whilst you have time to relax. Both pools have enticing beach entries and have maximum depths of 0.3m for the toddler pool and 0.9m for the leisure pool.
Warm Water Program Pool/Spa/Sauna/Steam Room
If the 50m/25m pool and learn to swim pool are not quite your pace, then imagine pure relaxation and indulgence in our warm water program pool, spa and/or sauna and steam facilities. Here you can enjoy the specialist health benefits associated or simply “chill out” in a most serene and beautiful aquatic environment. With an access ramp, stairs and slopes from a depth of 0.9m through to 1.4m, we know this particular facility will hold great attraction to older generations in particular, looking for a bit of “me” time.
Please note at times Aqua classes are scheduled, please refer to the Group Fitness Timetable for specific times when there is limited public space available.
Entry to the this area is restricted to persons aged 16 years and over, unless part of a program or management approval.
You must have a wristband from reception to access the spa, steam and sauna facilities.
Waterslides & Adventure Playground/Zero Depth
Aquatic adrenaline rides are in high demand for active teens, family groups and youngsters. At our new facility it’s the absolute “wow” factor at work, with a fantastic mix of interactive water activities, light and sound features and exciting water play spaces for younger children. And there is nothing more exciting at the entire complex than the Tantrum Alley waterslide – the only one in the whole of Australia! With its Pipeline partner we just know you’ll be counting down to enjoy this thrilling ride – extreme fun for everyone, whether you’re 6 or 60.
Waterslide height requirements are: Tantrum Alley - 122cm, The Pipeline - 107cm

Watch Around Water Policy
To help address the concern regarding the supervision of children at public aquatic facilities, WaterMarc has implemented the ‘Watch Around Water’ program. This has been developed by Aquatics & Recreation Victoria and Life Saving Victoria to educate the public about adequate supervision and to encourage parent/guardians to take on this responsibility when visiting a public aquatic facility.
Therefore the following safe supervision policies must be adhered to:
Children under 5 years old
- Will be issued a yellow wristband from reception upon entry.
- Children under 5 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian.
- Adequate supervision requires the parent/guardian to accompany the child in the water and remain within arm's reach of the child at all times.
Children under 10 years old
- Children under 10 years old will not be admitted without an appropriate parent/guardian. The parent/guardian must be 16 years or over and adhere to all conditions of entry.
- Children under 10 years old must be constantly supervised by a parent/guardian while in the aquatic area of the centre.
- The parent/guardian must position himself or herself to have a clear view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them and the child.
Children 10 years and older
- For children 10 years and older, parents must use their knowledge of the child's swimming ability to determine the level of accompaniment required.
- Parent /guardians are not required to be present in the centre.
