The Aquatic Centre and COVID-19
Masks are required inside at the Orange Aquatic Centre.

Our lifeguards do their best to watch everyone as often as possible but our lifeguards aren’t ever going to be as effective as a watchful, attentive parent or carer. Take this opportunity to put down the phone, the laptop or the newspaper and jump in the pool with your child.
Play games and have some quality, uninterrupted time together.
• If your child is under 12 we recommend you are either in the water with them or at the closest entry point to the pool.
• All children under five must be within arm’s reach of a parent or carer.
• Please take children with you if you need to leave the poolside for any reason.
• Please be aware our staff have been directed to remove any child from the water if they are not being ‘actively supervised’ by a parent or carer.
• Any child under five not within arm’s reach of a responsible carer will be taken out of the water.
• The decisions of lifeguards are final, regardless of a child’s swimming ability.
• Please respect our staff and their actions.
Our lifeguards are acting on directions from Orange City Council and management. Patrons who disagree with lifeguards may be asked to leave the centre.
