Important announcements

Did you know you can purchase your summer passes online? Click here! Summer passes can only be used at Braidwood, Bungendore and Captains Flat Pools but are interchangeable.

Lifeguards are an important safety feature but do not replace the close supervision of a parent or guardian. Please keep watch of those in your care.

Closing the pool for water quality incidents is costly and inconvenient. Please ensure that any child under the age of 3 or not toilet trained is wearing a swimming nappy.
