Freshwater Swimming Pools
Freshwater swimming pools are located at Bulahdelah, Stroud, Tuncurry and Tea Gardens. These pools are open from the beginning of the September school holidays through to the end of the April school holidays. Pool entry fees apply at all pools, with Bulahdelah and Stroud pools having an honesty box system. Tea Gardens Swimming Pool is Council's only supervised outdoor swimming pool, with a lifeguard on duty during the swimming season. Please note, the lifeguard is not at the pool nor on duty for the entire time the pool is open. For a schedule of supervised hours please check the notice board at the entry to the pool which displays when the pool is supervised.
Council encourages all users of swimming areas to be accompanied by a responsible person at all times.
Swimming enclosures opening on to the lake and river systems are located at Allworth, Coomba Park and Little Street Forster. If you would prefer to swim in the ocean, Forster offers the Ocean Baths and Tuncurry has The Rockpool. Plese note, all swimming enclosures are unsupervised and contain marine life.
