The Shire provide temporary solution for Swimmers

Published on Friday, 12 March 2021 at 12:53:37 PM

In place of the main pool's closure at the Kununurra Leisure Centre, the Shire will provide some alternative swimming locations for community members participating in Swim Club and the Argyle Swim.
Transport for the Kununurra Croc Swim Club will be provided on Saturday morning, beginning Saturday, 13 March 2021, to the Wyndham swimming pool. Members are urged to contact the Swim Club directly for departure times and information.
Transport will also be provided to Lake Argyle on Sundays. The bus will depart from the Kununurra Leisure Centre at 6 am and return to Kununurra by 10 am. This will commence on Sunday, 14 March 2021. Swimmers are advised to be cautious and to swim at their own risk. For community members who wish to utilise this service, please contact the Kununurra Leisure Centre on (08) 9168 2120. Limited seats are available, so please ensure you register early.
Both of these temporary arrangements will remain in place until the main pool is reopened.
The Shire is also looking at providing marker buoys that will emulate lane ropes at Kununurra Swim Beach. We are currently investigating this feasibility with regulators, although swimmers are free to use Swim Beach for training purposes.
For more information, please contact the Kununurra Leisure Centre on (08) 9168 2120. We wish to apologise for the inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience.
