Visited probably at the wrong time, 3.30 ish when the squads were about to start at 4pm. Still, the pool was fine, not too hot and lanes weren't that busy, until 4pm. Well worth a visit. $7.60 I think for the swim👍

It was a beautiful warm day in Hobart, with many happy children and families enjoying the water slide. We were amazed that the water slide was then CLOSED to users at 4pm when the pool remained open until 6pm. Not a way to welcome families...More

I have found that this centre always seems to be closed or it has shortened hours of operation. This is frustrating as when you check online the hours of operation do not match the reality of the centre. Also, on a side note, the spas...More

Holidaying and took the family here, they are reasonably priced and have a family rate. Lovely service at the cafe. Pools well kept, change rooms clean. Lifeguards friendly and told the kids when the slide would open.
