Seasonal Changes

Gympie ARC has the following changes from 15th April 2024:

  • 50m outdoor pool will be closed until Saturday 14th September.
  • Large waterslides will be closed until Saturday 14th September.
  • Our splash park will be closed for approximately one and a half months for further repairs.
  • Group fitness and squad have updated timetables and sessions will be held in the 25m indoor pool.

Appropriate Swimwear Policy

Appropriate swimwear must be worn at all times to maintain a clean, safe and inviting environment for all our guests. Clothing other than swimwear can create problems with water clarity, filtration systems and pool disinfection.

Indoor 25m Pool

The 25m indoor pool is fully enclosed, heated at between 28°C and 30°C, and open all year round. This pool is where the majority of our learn to swim lessons are held, as well as squad sessions during winter season.

This pool is designed to accommodate a broad range of user groups including lap swimmers, recreational visits, learn to swim classes, aqua aerobics, squad training and warm water exercise.

  • The indoor pool is a heated pool not a 'hydrotherapy pool', and as such it is not designed to cater for all medical or therapeutic-based water activities.
  • The temperature of the indoor pool is designed to be maintained between 28-30 degrees maximum, as allowed by the pool design and capacity of heating equipment. The temperature is monitored and recorded every four hours.
  • A sudden drop in outside temperatures can affect the pool temperature and the water may feel cooler than normal.
  • Guests are encouraged to check the temperature notice at the front desk before entering, or by asking one of our friendly team if they are concerned about pool temperature on a particular day.

50m Swimming Pool

Gympie ARC is home to an eight-lane, 50m Olympic pool.

The 50m outdoor pool is open seasonally from the start of September Public School holidays until the end of April Public School Holidays, and is great for lap swimming, school carnivals and fun days.

Please note that this pool can be closed due to swimming carnivals, special events and other community-based activities. All updates regarding closures are available on the noticeboard at the front entrance of ARC or on our Facebook page.

Kids Splash Park Area

Kids love to explore water fountains, and squirt and splash their way through the FREE water play area.

This water world of discovery is designed specifically for young children so they too can experience the joy of water and develop their confidence at every stage.


Twist & turn your way down the double-looped tubes of fun.

With two waterslides to choose from, you can race your mates and have a blast sliding down these superfast superjet slides.

All riders must be 6years old and taller than 1.2m and measure up against our ruler at front reception.

All instructions given by staff and Lifeguards must be obeyed at all times.
