Kardinia Aquatic Centre

Welcome to Kardinia Aquatic Centre

Kardinia Aquatic Centre - Geelong's state of the art outdoor aquatic facility is the perfect venue for international swimmers, lap swimmers and the general public.

Whether you are after a quick swim session during your work day, a weekend or afternoon with the kids, or a training session with a squad, Kardinia is the place to be.

The 50m long, 25m wide (10 lane) pool meets FINA (International Swimming Federation) Standards and is a terrific venue for recreational swimmers, school carnivals and international events.

The centre is now open for the Summer - come along and enjoy a fun day outdoors!

Swimmers are encouraged to continue during the cooler months at their local Swim, Sport & Leisure indoor centre (Leisurelink, Splashdown, Waterworld or Bellarine Aquatic & Sports Centre).

Car Parking Notice

Please note the Latrobe Tce parking area (left of pool entrance) will now only be accessible when centre patronage levels are high (previous years usage resulted in overuse and degrading of the parkland). 

Please use the car park to the right side of the pool entrance (towards Moorabool St).  We appreciate your cooperation.
