Bluewater Lagoon opening delayed

Published: 16 Sep 2022

Council has had to make the tough decision to postpone the opening of Bluewater Lagoon until next Thursday (September 22).

Due to the lagoon being closed for an extended period, and despite strategic water adjustments over the last few days, the water quality at the facility has dropped below council’s rigorous standards.

The health and safety of the public is council’s number one priority, and council is working with new operator Lifeguarding Services Australia Pty Ltd to ensure the water quality meets council’s standards before opening.

In the meantime, from tomorrow (September 17), entry to the Mackay ARC aquatic facility will be free for the period the lagoon is closed.

Council apologises for any inconvenience and appreciates the public’s patience.
