Public swimming pools


The public swimming pools, operated by the Shire in Paraburdoo and Tom Price, are central to town and have become one of the most popular sporting facilities, especially during the summer months. 

Grassed areas with trees cover the grounds of both centres and a BBQ is available for pool patrons upon request. The swimming pools are also available for private functions including children's birthday parties outside of public hours, and interested parties are urged to discuss their requirements with the pool manager by clicking here.

Pool inflatables are also available for hire but bookings are essential.

The pools are used for a variety of activities. These include:

  • General use by the public
  • School swimming classes
  • Vacation swimming classes
  • Learn to swim classes (conducted throughout the season)
  • Amateur Swimming Club training and competition
  • Water polo training and competition
  • Aqua aerobics
  • Adult Life Saving Classes
  • Functions and party hire
  • Pool parties
  • Resuscitation classes
  • Water orientation for infants up to 4 years old (conducted two to three times per season)

All activities conducted by the centre use fully qualified instructors and offer a high level of service to users. AUSTSWIM instructors with First Aid qualifications are used for private swimming lessons and water orientation classes. Activities such as aqua aerobics and mother and infant swimming classes are conducted when instructors are available. Any persons interested in being trained, or who are trained in these areas should contact the pool manager by clicking here.
