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 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.
