Swimming Pools & Water Parks - The Whitsundays QLD
The Whitsundays, Queensland.
24°C Mostly Sunny Mostly Sunny

The Whitsunday region is home to many aquatic facilities, many of which are free for visitors and locals alike to enjoy!

Soak up the sun and enjoy a swim at the Airlie Beach Lagoon, a massive swimming pool bordered by sandy beach areas and grassy knolls, located within close distance to the main street of Airlie Beach. It is the perfect place to kick off your tropical adventure on the mainland, and the free public Lagoon and surrounding parkland area also feature a children’s splash pool and playground equipment, providing the perfect location for families. There are also several barbeque facilities situated throughout the lagoon’s parklands.

Head towards Proserpine or Bowen and take advantage of the swimming pools and water parks which are sure to keep the kids entertained (and tire them out!). Collinsville also has a swimming pool with plenty of shaded areas to relax, rejuvenate and reconnect.
