Making the most of your visit

Our pools have adopted Life Saving Victoria’s Watch Around Water pool safety program. As part of this program, the following guidelines are in place:

  • Children under 5 years of age must be accompanied in the water by a parent (or carer) or person over the age of 16, remaining within arms reach.
  • Children aged between 5 and 10 years of age must be clearly and constantly visible and remain directly accessible.

All children must be actively supervised at all times.  Unsupervised children (of any age) will be removed from the water if the lifeguard is concerned for their safety.

For more information, please visit the Life Saving Victoria website.

Pool rules are in place at each venue to ensure everyone is able to enjoy their time safely. These rules are on display at each venue.

Please stay safe and respect the directions given by our Lifeguard Team.
