Townsville’s Splash-tastic Gift: Free Pool Access Until Christmas!

Townsville's Splash-tastic Gift: Free Pool Access Until Christmas!

Make a Splash this Festive Season with Free Pool Entry

Townsville residents, rejoice! The scorching Aussie summer just got cooler with an early Christmas present from the Townsville City Council. 

From December 2nd to 24th, dive into the refreshing waters of TobrukLong Tan, Kokoda Memorial Pools, or the Northern Beaches Leisure Centre—completely free of charge!

A Soak for Everyone

Mayor Jenny Hill’s initiative ensures a budget-friendly and joy-filled holiday for families and individuals alike.

Whether you’re an adult, child, concession holder, or spectator, free access spans all demographics.

It’s a fantastic opportunity for the community to bond and beat the heat without worrying about costs.

Make a Splash, Mind the Details

While free entry encompasses most aspects, it’s essential to note the exclusions.

Swimming lessons, group bookings, aqua aerobics, and multi-pass entries remain outside of this complimentary offer.

However, this doesn’t dampen the excitement of a free swim in these top-notch pools.

Mayor Hill’s enthusiasm for this initiative reflects the community-focused approach of the Townsville City Council.

It’s an invitation to embrace the festive season by splashing around and staying cool. And let’s not forget Mayor Hill’s reminder to follow safety guidelines—slip, slop, slap, seek, and slide—ensuring a fun yet safe experience for all.

Dive In!

This generous gesture lasts until December 24th, providing ample time to make a splash, enjoy family outings, and bask in the holiday spirit.

So, dust off those swimwear, grab your towels, and head over for a dose of aquatic delight. Remember, supervision is key, especially for our young water lovers!

Townsville’s pools are the place to be this December, offering a refreshing escape from the heat. Mayor Hill and the Council’s thoughtful gift indeed set the stage for a splashing good time for everyone.
