Facilities closed due to air quality

Wednesday, 15 January 2020

Due to air quality advice and current hazardous readings from Environment Protection Authority Victoria, we have temporarily closed the following pools and beach:

- Kardinia Aquatic Centre
- Lara Aquatic Centre
- Eastern Beach and children's pool

For the safety of our lifeguards, who are required to spend significant periods of time outside, there will be no patrols at outdoor pools or Eastern Beach. We advise against swimming at Eastern Beach until air quality improves and lifeguard patrols resume.

EPA Victoria has advised people to stay indoors where possible and keep windows and doors shut, switch air-conditioners to 'recirculate', cease unnecessary outdoor activities and keep pets indoors. Anyone experiencing any health issues or breathing difficulties should seek medical assistance.
