Prahran Aquatic Centre

We are pleased to report that the re-opening of Prahran Aquatic Centre is on schedule for Monday 24 November after its closure for the past 6 weeks. During this time we have been able to undertake much needed maintenance works that otherwise could not have been done whilst the centre was open.

We thank you for your patience over the closure period and we look forward to welcoming you back on Monday.

The Prahran Aquatic Centre is a Watch Around Water endorsed Centre. This policy applies to children under 10 years of age and must be followed whilst visiting the centre.


Kiosk Update: We had hoped to get a new operator into the kiosk prior to reopening; however we have not had any applications to our advertised tender. We have readvertised and are hoping to provide a full service to you as soon as possible. In the mean time we are in the process of organising some additional vending machines.


Why come to Prahran Aquatic Centre?

If you're a keen lap swimmer, the Prahran Aquatic Centre is one of the finest pools in Melbourne. It has a unique cosmopolitan atmosphere and is located just around the corner from Chapel Street. The centre features a heated outdoor 50 metre pool, toddler's pool (open during the summer months), spacious lawns with shade sails, sundeck and a relaxing spa, sauna and steam room.

As there is limited parking, if you would like to cycle to the centre there are bike racks available at the front of the centre and we have lockers to secure your personal items.
