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 all ages the opportunity to enjoy social contact, participate in recreational activities whilst promoting water safety.

The 2021-22 season commenced 12 November 2021 and concluded 20 March 2022.

Pool Design Competition!

Buloke's Aquatic Team continues to work on how to improve the swimming pools for our community. We conducted a survey earlier in the year (April) and then we asked the kids!


As part of Council’s ongoing improvement of our swimming pools, the Aquatic Team recently held a competition for primary school students across Buloke asking participants to design their ideal pool.

Of 47 entries, voting was fiercely contested, with one design from Donald Primary School’s Imogen Manifold rising to the top and becoming the winner. Imogen will be asked to help choose new inflatable toys and to launch them at a pool party in the coming season. Of course, thanks to Imogen the pool party will most likely be held at Donald!

Thank you to all who took part in the competition, the quality and detail in the designs was outstanding!

The competition closed on 3 August, but you can still download the template if your youngster would like to contribute.
