Life & Style

Check out public outdoor swimming pools

To keep you cool, we’ve collated a guide of all our local pools as well as our favourite swimming spots across Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland & the Hunter Valley, and Port Stephens.

Whilst outdoor public pools are allowed to reopen, we suggest contacting individual venues to check what their current operating hours and guidelines are.
