GSAC pool set to re-open this Monday

Friday, 19 June

Lismore City Council is pleased to announce that the indoor pool, Aqua classes and the creche at the Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre will reopen on Monday, 22 June.
“This is great news for the community who have been waiting for the pool to re-open after it was closed due to COVID-19 restrictions,” Lismore City Mayor Isaac Smith said.
“Staff have been working hard to put all necessary procedures in place to ensure we could re-open this very popular facility as soon as possible.”
Due to ongoing COVID-19 procedures to protect the safety of visitors and staff, the number of participants in GSAC’s Aqua classes will be capped at 20 until further notice.
The number of children using the Creche will also be capped at 20. To ensure a space, we recommend making a booking.

  • Toilets and change rooms will be accessible, however, social distancing applies with every second shower remaining closed. Saunas will also remain closed
  • All members must maintain correct social distancing of 1.5m when in the Centre
