Important Notice Please Read

Swimmers Guide is not connected with any of the facilities listed on this site in any way. We cannot tell you the pools’ opening and closing times or when Senior Aerobics classes are held; we cannot tell you about the availability or cost of swimming lessons; we cannot get you discounted admission to swim at any of them; and we cannot help you find your children’s lost goggles or bathing suits.

We can and do try to give you reliable information about the pools, their locations, their admission policies, and their single-visit or casual swimming prices. Where possible, we include hypertext links to the pools’ own official websites and Facebook pages, clickable email addresses, and links to the websites of the clubs and teams that swim there. Look to those resources within each listing for more detailed information.

The data in the site is under continual review and is revised whenever the site’s editor becomes aware of a change, but, with more than 20,000 listings, a complete, periodic review of every listing takes about seven years to complete; in many places, prices will change four or five times before we have a chance to check the pool’s official website again.

For that reason, we ask for your help: If any of the information in the listing is incorrect, out of date, or could be improved, please tell us. There is an "Edit" button on just about every line of every listing, click on the edit button to tell us what needs to be changed. (No, it's not a place for you to ask us questions. What we have in each listing is the latest news we have.)

Also, please consider checking the listings of the pools you regularly use at home or when traveling, as your knowledge may be helpful to someone else who is unfamiliar with the area and visiting for the first time. Just go to the Add a Pool section of the site, read the first page, then fill out the questionnaire.

Facility Reviews

This is a good training pool as opposed to a recreational pool. Mostly lap swimming going on here. Squads from elite to beginners, morning, lunch, and evening. Contact the pool for squad times. I recommend it as a place to punch out some laps.
This is a nice, outdoor, saltwater pool in the Fortitude Valley neighborhood of Brisbane. Although the pool is 50m in length, it appears that most of the time, about half of the pool is sectioned off into 25m lanes (with the rest remaining available as 50m lanes). Lane availability can be found on their website.

The water was clean, heated to a comfortable temperature, and generally well maintained.

Although lanes were designated as slow/medium/fast, not all the swimmers were abiding by these speeds; some swimmers appeared to be purposely swimming in the center of the lane to prevent anyone else from entering.

Overall, it's a nice pool and a great place to do laps, if it isn’t too busy.
