Palm Beach Aquatic Centre

Girls swimming in an aquatic centre

A major redevelopment for the southern Gold Coast's much-loved Palm Beach Aquatic Centre is underway. We estimate construction will take place from April 2022 to the end of 2023.

To stay up to date on the Palm Beach Aquatic and Community Centre redevelopment, visit the project page.

Public access to pools may be restricted at times due to school swimming carnivals and other aquatic events booked at the centre. While we do our best to update members and visitors or any events at the centre, there may be last minute changes to programs. Contact the centre direct if you have any questions around public access
