Bay Islands Aquatic Centre

The Bay Islands Aquatic Centre has a COVID Safe plan in place. Social distancing must be maintained in the complex (except when in the pool), with limited seating and no drinking water available. Patrons are asked to swim and go and lifeguards may remove anyone not following COVID guidelines. The new check-in system requires patrons to have their photo taken, record their time of entry and provide contact details such as a mobile number and address. 

Bay Islands Aquatic Centre is a salt water chlorinated public pool that we operate on behalf of Education Queensland.

Pool season is from the 18th September 2021 until the 17th April 2022.
