Families it’s time to make a big splash at Aquafest – Saturday 23 June between 10am and 2pm at the reopening of the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre. There will be plenty of fun and activities for kids and parents of all ages including the big splash, a sausage sizzle, inflatable obstacle course and much more.

Free access will also allow you to tour the facility, join the novelty pool races and take a look around the dry dive centre and diving and synchronised swimming displays. Don’t forget to take in the beauty of the Broadwater while you’re there.

The kids can also have a free learn to swim assessment and enrol in our $12 learn to swim classes*. Continuing with swimming over the cooler months will help maintain your child’s abilities and confidence in the water.

Mum and dad get your active wear on and test your fitness and flexibility at one of the free group fitness classes – aqua aerobics, yoga or spin. The kids can join in too.
