Swimming Pools

Buloke Shire Council owns and operates seven outdoor aquatic facilities which provide swimming opportunities throughout the Buloke community. Each facility offers to the community a main pool, toddler/baby pool, change/shower facilities, poolside seating and shade options. These swimming pools provide residents of all ages the opportunity to enjoy social contact, participate in recreational activities whilst promoting water safety.

The 2021-22 season will commence 12 November 2021. 


Our community might notice a few changes to our aquatic facilities due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

To keep in line with DHHS guidelines and current restrictions in place, all patrons are asked to observe the following COVID-19 guidelines:

  • Only those aged over 12 years and two months who are fully vaccinated are able to attend the pool, and patrons will be required to provide proof of vaccination, or medical exemption, in order to enter the pool facilities
  • Ensure 1.5 metres social distancing while in the pool and outside of the pool
  • Patrons are encouraged to sanitise their hands upon entry at the sanitising stations in each pool, and check-in using the Service Victoria QR code
  • Our toilets, showers and change rooms will be open to our patrons, but to assist us with keeping the facility appropriately sanitised, we request pool patrons to minimise use of these facilities where possible.
