What can we help you with?

Would you like to set Gatton as your preferred campus?

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 25m pool – opened in June, 2017 – and a Program Pool used for Learn-to-Swim lessons and infant swimming. 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.

Summer of Fun!

Join the inflatable fun every weekend after 12pm! Every Saturday & Sunday afternoon, we’re ditching the lane ropes & opening up our 25m Pool to free swimming, with basketball hoops, bean bags, music & more.

We’re also offering a special Family Float offer, where for a limited time, 2 adults and 2 kids can enter the Aquatic Centre on Saturdays 12-5pm or Sundays 12-3pm for only $10. Additional family members cost $3 each, with a maximum of 6 people per entry.

Plus, students get $5 entry to the pool, all summer long!

Honestly everyone who I spoke to here were 10/10 the nicest group of people I've met. I was only there for a short time but left feeling really happy with the general vibe and atmosphere the staff gave off. Can't wait to come back
