Aquatic Centre

Welcome to the UQ Sport Aquatic Centre St Lucia!

Make a splash at one of the best swimming facilities in Brisbane. The UQ Sport Aquatic Centre in St Lucia boasts an Olympic-sized heated pool and a smaller Learn-to-Swim pool for youngsters. Fancy a dip at Gatton? Head over to the Gatton page for all centre information.

On a daily basis, we provide a range of activities including squads, swimming lessons and training facilities for several UQ Sport Clubs. It doesn’t matter whether you're at doggy paddle stage or if you are pretty much a fish in the water, we have swimming options for all ability levels. There is also Wi-Fi available throughout the Aquatic Centre for when you want to just chill at the cafe.

We have a minimum of 3 lanes available for swimmers at all times.
