To keep everyone safe when visiting any of our facilities under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, please:

  • Present your My Vaccine Pass to staff before entering the facility every time.
  • Use myLEISURE to book into group fitness classes.
  • Scan or sign in as it is a condition of entry for all Council facilities and venues. This applies to visitors, contractors, and couriers entering our spaces.
  • Wear a mask. Be considerate of those who cannot wear a mask for medical reasons. You can remove masks while exercising and swimming.
  • Be aware most customer-facing staff will also be wearing masks unless they are not required to for safety reasons. Lifeguards will not be required to wear a mask while working on poolside.
  • Maintain 1m physical distancing from others. During RED this is mandatory, while in Orange this is strongly encouraged.
  • Use EFTPOS or other contactless payments if you can. But we will still be accepting cash.
  • Follow the guidance of our staff and signage to keep everyone safe when sharing our spaces.
  • Note: This guidance may be subject to change in accordance with our government and relevant industry bodies.
