Aquatic Facilities

Appropriate Swimwear Policy

Appropriate swimwear must be worn at all times to maintain a clean, safe and inviting environment for all our patrons. Clothing, other than swimwear, can create problems with water clarity, pool disinfectant and our water filtration systems.

Tobruk Memorial Pool offers a wide variety of features ensuring there is something for everyone to enjoy!

Our World Class Aquatic facilities include our Olympic 50m swimming pool, two 25 swimming pools, a toddler pool, and the Flow Rider - where you can ride the ONLY Waves in Cairns.

50m Swimming Pool

Heated to 27 degrees, the shaded outdoor 50m Pool has 10 lanes, making it an ideal place for lap swimming. With slow, medium and fast lanes the pool caters for all abilities.

Our 50m Pool is a FINA approved World Class standard, and attracts Olympic teams from around the world to train with us in the lead up to major events, both locally, nationally and internationally.

The pool is extremely versatile, with a movable boom that allows it to be converted into water polo, underwater hockey or two 25m pools. The pool is ideal for swimming carnivals, with a permanent grandstand seating for over 400 people

25m 6-lane Pool

The 25m Lap Pool is also heated to 27 degrees in winter, and a lovely shaded outdoor pool, used for lap swimming, aquatic exercise, swimming lessons and other aquatic programs. The lap pool has six lanes with a depth ranging from 1m – 1.35m. 

The pool also caters for those with disabilities, equipped with a full ramp for easy access. You can also book lanes for your special groups.

25m Warm Water Pool - Closed Every Saturday 8am to 1pm 

Our Program Pool is primarily for our Learn to Swim program. Learn to Swim will take priority over other swimmers, groups and patrons. The Program Pool is a shared space by many user groups, especially those with special needs and accessibility needs.

Please NO Lap Swimming in the heated Program Pool for the safety of all users in this small, very special place. Lap Swimmers can use the other Pools, both 25m and 50m Outdoor Pools.

Our 25m warm water pool is heated up to 32 degrees and has a constant depth of 1.2m.

You can enjoy the specialist health benefits associated or simply relax in a beautiful aquatic environment. With an access ramp, stairs and mechanical hoist, we are certain this particular facility will hold great attraction to older generations in particular, looking for a bit of “me” time.
