The Launceston Aquatic Centre… I’ve been meaning to write about that! There’s so many things to do in Tasmania, that I sometimes get overwhelmed.
Launceston Aquatic Centre & Water Slide
The sparkling new-ish centre in Tasmania’s northern city of Launceston, at the heart of the Tamar Valley region, has pretty much everything you could want for a fun day of water sport. For summer weather, the outdoor area boasts a beach entry leisure pool as well as the separate water slide.
Swimming Pool and Diving
More adventurous Tasmanians (and tourists!) can jump or dive from the diving boards into the 25m outdoor lap pool. Closely monitored by a Launceston Aquatic Centre life guard, the deep end of the pool gets cordoned off, leaving lanes in the other half open for swimming.
Indoor Heated Pools
The nearby Programs Pool is designed for rehabilitation and water therapy and can be accessed via a sloping ramp.
Launceston Aquatic Centre Fees
A single visit to the Launceston Aquatic Centre will set you back $5-70 for adults, $4-30 for children and $1-70 for toddlers. Infants under two are free. If you want to try the water slide, you can buy single rides for $0-60 each; or invest in a multiple ride pass (up to 16 rides for $7-80). The same multiple ride pass can be used for more than one person.
