Our Facilities

wanaka pool complex

Wanaka Pool

Our 25 metre indoor pool is 6 lanes wide and heated to 28.5°C. The pool depth ranges from 0.9m to 1.5m. We aim to have at least two lanes available for public lap swimming during our operating hours. Due to school swim events and other large bookings, this may not always be possible.


Barbecue & Picnic Area

Enjoy the fresh air with our large outdoor grass area. Tables, chairs and a BBQ are available for anyone to use, providing a great spot to relax with family and friends on a sunny summer's day.


Aqua Bars

Our custom designed Aqua Bars enable you to have a high intensity workout that is non-weight bearing and low impact. Available at no extra cost, the bars are perfect for rehabilitation exercise, working out when injured and for those who lack water confidence, are elderly or overweight. A specific set of exercises have been developed to help you use the bars effectively. These exercises can be adapted and tailored to suit a specific training or rehabilitation programme.


Change Rooms & Accessibility

Separate male and female change areas are available, containing showers, toilets, baby change tables and hairdryers. We have one self-contained accessible change room available for use, which has wheelchair access and contains a hand rail, toilet and basin. A chair hoist and hand rails are available for entering the pool.



We have a great range of swim wear, swim caps and goggles available for purchase as well as a small selection of drinks, snacks, sweets and ice-creams.


Aqua Nappies

All children under 3 years of age must wear swim nappies and tight fitting swim wear during their pool visit. The key requirement is that there are two lines of defence - nappy and togs. We recommend our Speedo Aqua Nappies, which are eco-friendly, re-usable and just $10 each. They are to be worn with a second layer - either togs or a disposable swim nappy.

You can also find aqua nappies at local supermarkets.


Lost Property

For security reasons we recommend leaving your valuables at home where possible. Any items that are left behind or handed into our staff will be kept in lost property as follows:

  • Valuables - handed to NZ Police after 24 hours
  • Toiletries - kept for one week and then thrown out
  • Clothing - kept for one month and then given to the Wanaka Recycle Centre
  • Socks/Underwear - thrown out at the end of the day
