Harold Holt Swim Centre


Harold Holt Swim Centre provides our diverse community with opportunities to learn, maintain and improve their health and well being. Programs and facilities include Learn to Swim program, group fitness classes, gym, hydrotherapy program, indoor 25m pool, outdoor heated 50m pool, spa and sauna.



The Harold Holt Swim Centre and Prahran Aquatic Centre were closed at 12 noon today, Monday 23 March 2020, until further notice.

These closures follow Prime Minister Scott Morrison's announcement on Sunday 22 March 2020 that all indoor sporting facilities and gyms be closed from 12pm today for an indefinite period. For the duration of the closure all direct debits will be placed on hold and 'Term Members' and 'Visit Passes' will have their expiry dates extended. If you have any questions about your membership please contact us via email at haroldholt@stonnington.vic.gov.au or prahranpool@stonnington.vic.gov.au We will respond your enquiry as soon as possible.

Interruption to programs and facilities

Our number one priority is to keep people safe and we’re working with the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services to do this. 

  • Learn to Swim programs cancelled until Monday 13 April, with the possibility of this being extended.
  • Spas and saunas closed until Monday 13 April, with the possibility of this being extended.
  • The Harold Holt Swim Centre gym remains open with an increased cleaning regime, but group fitness classes cancelled.

The best way you can look after yourself, and others, is to practice good hygiene and not go to public places if you are sick.

More information is available here, including links to Department of Health and Human Services advice and resources.

Improvement works underway

Council is investing $3m to deliver improvement works at Harold Holt Swim Centre to ensure the centre meets the needs of our next generation of swimmers and exercise enthusiasts.

These works will include retiling pools, replacement of lights with energy efficient LED fittings, accessibility improvements to the outdoor pool, refurbishment of the outdoor change rooms and upgrading spectator seating.

We are also investigating options for the currently closed diving tower.
