Brunswick Baths: Enjoy a Joyful Family Splash in Melbourne’s North

The outdoor pool is perfect for those warm summer days, while the indoor facilities offer a cosy retreat during the cooler months. 

Brunswick Baths is part of Active Merri-bek, which is owned by the council City of Merri-bek and run by YMCA Victoria.You can check out their facilities via the virtual tour.

Brunswick Pools & Gym

Whether you’re interested in lap swimming or want to get started with swimming lessons, Brunswick Baths has a swimming pool for every age. You can check Brunswick Baths lane availability here. 

The main pool hall offers two indoor pools. There’s a 20m heated indoor pool (it was 33 degrees on my visit!) with four lanes and a maximum 1.3m depth. It’s used for learn to swim classes, hence its warm water level. When swimming lessons are happening there is usually one lane available for lap swimming.

The waterplay pool is a safe haven for little ones to enjoy water play, under your watchful eye. It features a beach entry and a small climbing structure with sprays and slides. 

The spa, sauna and steam room are available for an additional fee on top of pool entry. Those facilities are only suitable for adults.   

Outside there’s an eight-lane 50m heated outdoor pool (heated at around 27-28 degrees) and a kids’ splash pad that’s under a shade sail.
