2023 Variable Pool Maintenance Project:  

The Doug Ellis Swimming Pool will be undergoing an essential maintenance project commencing Monday 29 May 2023. The Variable Pool, including the Sauna and Steam Room, will be closed for retiling over a period of approximately 6 months. This is an unplanned interruption to our programs and services, due to the rapid deterioration of the pool tiling which requires immediate rectification works. As such, from Monday 29 May 2023 the Doug Ellis Swimming Pool operating hours will adjust to the following:
