Swimming Pools

Find the right pool to meet your swimming needs

We have three main pools at Adelaide Aquatic Centre, so no matter your swimming tastes, we've got something for you. All our pools are heated to a minimum 27 degrees (reaching 31° in our leisure pool), and are open all year round.

Make sure you check out our Opening Hours if you're after access to a certain area of the Centre. Also, some times may differ from what is listed below, as we adjust to reopening under COVID-19 restrictions.

Main Pool

The Main Pool is a 50m pool for you to swim laps or spend some time in the water.

Through the day, a moveable barrier will split the pool in two 25m pools. We guarantee at least four lanes at 25m or three lanes at 50m during the times listed below.
