Memorial Swim Centre reopens next week

Published: 01 Sep 2022

Memorial Swim Centre will reopen to the public on Monday, September 5.

Due to staff shortages, the facility will temporarily operate with reduced hours until more staff can be recruited and trained.

This means the facility will be open from 5.30am to 12.30pm on weekdays, and 8am to 12.30pm on weekends when it reopens next week.

Residents are advised that all of council’s aquatic facilities are currently experiencing staffing shortages.

Council is encouraging residents who are interested in a new, exciting and rewarding career to consider completing a lifeguard course.

Reef Training will be running lifeguard courses at the Mackay Aquatic and Recreation Complex on September 24-25 and October 15-16 from 9am to 4pm each day.
