Mitchell Shire boasts three seasonal outdoor swimming pools located in Broadford, Tallarook and Seymour.
The outdoor pools are open during summer and will only open when the air temperature is forecast to be 26 degrees or greater by the Bureau of Meteorology.
Once open, operating hours may vary in response to temperature and patronage and the pools may be closed at any time for safety reasons, including dangerous weather conditions, sometimes at very short notice.
Mitchell Shire Council will be providing residents and visitors free entry for casual recreation swimming at our 3 outdoor pools this summer season.
Council will monitor how many people take advantage of the free casual visit to outdoor pools for the 2019/2020 season which will help inform the way pools are being used and developed in the future.
Please note user group hire fees, special event entry fees and entry fees to the indoor aquatic facilities will still apply.
Watch Around Water
When you visit a Mitchell Shire outdoor pool, you are responsible for the supervision of your children. As a parent or guardian of:
- children under 5 years old, you must be in the water and within arm’s reach at all times
- children 5 to 10 years old, you must provide direct supervision to them at all times
Our lifeguards are employed on a 1:75 ratio, therefore, it is the responsibility of parents and guardians to provide direct supervision for children.
Unsupervised children of any age will be removed from the water if the lifeguard is concerned for their safety.
