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 three heated pools: a 50m Olympic-sized pool, a brand new 25m pool – opened in June, 2017 – and a dedicated Program Pool for Kids Learn-to-Swim classes. 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 Learn-to-Swim lessons, squads and training facilities for several UQ Sport Clubs. It doesn’t matter whether you're at doggy paddle stage or if you’re pretty much a fish in the water, we have swimming options for all ability levels!

You’ll find plenty of space to sit and relax at the Aquatic Centre, too! There’s deck-side bleacher seating, as well as landscaped grassed areas throughout the Centre. There’s also Wi-Fi available for when you want to just chill at the café.

At all times, a minimum of four 50m lanes (or the equivalent between both the 25m and 50m Pools) will be available for lap swimming.

Free maternity swim program helps mums-to-be stay healthy

Staying healthy during pregnancy and building water confidence with newborns have become a whole lot easier with UQ Sport’s new Bubble Club, which gives expectant mothers free pool access up to three times a week for 14 months. Bubble Club members have access to free Learn-to-Swim classes for babies aged 4-6-months, with water and safety skills taught through games, singing and water toys.
