I’d like to let Think Tasmania readers know about the Launceston Aquatic Centre. The Ulverstone water slide was mentioned in a recent article, so there may be people looking for a similar option.
Launceston Aquatic Centre: Water Slide
The sparkling swimming centre in Tasmania’s city of Launceston (at the heart of the Tamar Valley region) has pretty much everything you could want for a fun day of water sport. For summer weather, the outdoor area has a beach entry leisure pool as well as the separate water slide.
Swimming Pool and Diving
More adventurous visitors can jump or dive from the diving boards into the 25m outdoor lap pool. Swimmers will be closely monitored by a Launceston Aquatic Centre lifeguard. The deep end of the pool gets cordoned off, leaving lanes in the other half open for swimming.
Indoor Heated Pools
If the weather is cooler or you have little tackers, a more sedate and warmer swim might be required. Like its outdoor counterpart, the heated indoor pool also has a graded beach-style entry. The nearby Programs Pool is designed for rehabilitation and water therapy and can be accessed via a sloping ramp.
