What families have to say about Lawnton Aquatic Centre

“So glad to have found Lawnton Aquatic! my 2 year old had his first swimming lesson today and I am KEEN to get back there! I was so pleased with the lovely, helpful staff and our instructor that I’ve enrolled my 4 year old to start swimming lessons too! well priced, excellent facilities and wonderful, knowledgeable team. Couldn’t ask for more!”

“After a recent knee injury I have been using the lovely 50-metre outdoor pool to do my hydrotherapy to help my recovery. I couldn’t walk when I started and had to use the hoist to get in and out of the pool. I’m now back on my feet but still love to come to the pool. I had lots of help and encouragement from the staff at the pool. Especially Peta. Thank you all. ”

“Just love the Lawnton Aquatic Centre, so much on offer and only 5 minutes from our home. The staff are amazing and always helpful and the prices are reasonable for a family. While the toddler area is small, it is perfect for the little ones and all they need.”
