Cook + Phillip Park Aquatic and Fitness Centre
Did you know?
The mural alongside the 50 metre pool was painted by Wendy Sharpe. It shows scenes from the life of Annette Kellerman (1886-1975), a professional swimmer from Australia who became a vaudeville and movie star in the USA.
Health and recreation
Located near the heart of the city centre by St Mary's Cathedral, Cook + Phillip Park Aquatic and Fitness Centre is a high-quality swimming and fitness facility. The centre is open all year round and features full access for people with a disability.
We have a 50-metre pool (ideal for lap swimming), a dedicated leisure pool (with a wave machine!) and a hydrotherapy pool. All are indoors and heated.
