THINGS TO DO: Reopening of the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre at Aquafest!

12 June 2018

Get your Coast kiddies ready to celebrate the reopening of the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre this Saturday 23 June between 10am and 2pm. The free Aquafest event will have stacks of fun and activities for kids and parents including the big splash, a sausage sizzle, inflatable obstacle course and much more.

Complimentary access will allow you to tour the facility, join the novelty pool races and check out the dry dive centre and diving and synchronised swimming displays.

Kids can also have a free learn to swim assessment as it’s so important to continue the $12 learn to swim lessons over the cooler months to retain confidence and abilities in the water.
