50 Metre Pool
Starting at the shallow end with a depth of 1.10m the pool gradually becomes deeper until it reaches 3.52m at the far end.
Shade sail covers are provided over the shallow half of the pool during the peak season providing both shade for our swimmers and assisting in keeping the water temperature lower.
There are grass areas surrounding the pool where you can relax, dry off and just enjoy the atmosphere. Shaded seating areas are also provided for your added protection and comfort but feel free to bring your own comfortable chair.
In 2014 we installed a new, fully shaded play area conveniently located on a large lawn space in close proximity to other recreational facilities such as beach volleyball and the basketball area. Being located adjacent the electric BBQ's it is an ideal location for the family to relax, supervise and enjoy all the Aquatic Centre facilities whilst enjoying a summer BBQ.
Our shallow wading pool is only 0.4m at its deepest end allowing easy beach style access. The children love the water features of the toddler pool which also boasts a mosaic mural handcrafted by local artist Minky Turton.
Beach Volleyball Court, Basketball Hoop & Handball
The Newman Aquatic Centre has a full size sand beach volleyball court to enjoy when you want a break from the water. Volleyballs are free to use and available from the reception/kiosk area. A basketball hoop is located adjacent the playground and is mounted on a large concrete pad. Basketballs are also free to use so just ask one of the friendly staff at the reception/kiosk area. A 4 person handball court is also available with balls available on request from the reception/kiosk area.
BBQ and Shaded Table Area
Two electric BBQ's are available and free to the public for use at anytime the pool is open. This makes a late afternoon swim followed by a BBQ dinner a serious consideration when you just want to unwind with the family at the end of the day. A number of picnic tables are located directly adjacent the BBQ's for your convenience. More portable tables are available if required.
Our kiosk stock an assortment of goods including sweets, ice creams, cold drinks, crisps, hot food and some dried fruits.
We take pride in supplying swimming products from 100% Australian owned companies.
Vorgee and Hart Sport supply our swim shop with a large range of swimming equipment
including but in no way limited to caps, kick boards, goggles, ear plugs, pull bouys and noodles.
We have a number of sealed inflatables which are free for public use. Mostly out on weekends and after school hours - feel free to ask one of our friendly lifeguards if our inflatables are not already out and available.
We also have 4 giant inflatables which are available for private bookings. We do prefer you provide 1 weeks notice when securing a booking for the giant inflatables. The giant inflatables comprise of 3 obstacle courses specific for the needs of varying age groups and a giant slide which is enormously popular with the younger children.
We strongly advise you provide as much notice when making a booking for an inflatable so that it does not conflict with other activities at the Aquatic Centre. Bookings are very popular during the summer school holiday period and on weekends due to birthday and Christmas parties so to avoid disappointment book early.
A ping pong table has recently been installed to provide even more fun.
You can play singles or double up and double the fun.
A $5.00 fully refundable deposit is required for Ping Pong equipment.
