With 22 Brisbane City Council pools across the city all now open for the summer swim season, there’s no better time to get out and make the most of these incredible community facilities. The winter season has officially ended, which means your local pool is open and ready for your Brisbane Kids to make a splash!

Council pools allow you to do more of what you love, including enjoying Brisbane’s beautiful climate and connecting with the people and places that make our city great. Many Council pool facilities feature far more than just your average 25-metre and 50-metre swimming pools, including slides, tipping buckets, toddler splash zones and beach-entry leisure pools.

Council pools are independently run by local business operators, each of which offers their own take on multi-visit passes and memberships, with some offering season passes.

Season passes for Council Pools in Brisbane

A season pass is a great way to get the most value from your participating local Council pool. Season passes enable return visits all season long for a one-off purchase price. This means your family can visit your local pool all day, every day of the swim season (who needs a pool at home?!). For families, a major benefit of the season pass is that you can also leave the facility and return on the same day, making popping home for lunch or nap time easier than ever. Adult, child, concession and family (1 adult + 2 children) season passes are available to buy, with an option to add extra people to the family pass at a discounted rate.

Membership options for local Brisbane pools

A membership at your participating local Council pool allows for unlimited visits to a specific pool within a set membership period. The benefit of a pool membership is knowing you have your family covered for unlimited swimming outings over the warmer months without having to continue to pay entry fees.

Multi-visit passes for local Brisbane pools

You can also choose a multi-visit pass allowing for 10 or more visits at a discounted per-visit rate. The flexibility of these passes means your family can visit your local pool whenever they feel like it during the swim season.

    Extremely frustrating
    Where are Brisbane council pools entry fees/monthly passes etc
    Why aren’t they listed?
    Why should I have to go to each pool – & often say contact pool
    A basic simple question that SHOULD be available on your council pool site
    Would hate to be visiting from somewhere else when even something majority of council already have for everyone to see & compare
    Though once as a Brisbane council pool all fees are the same anyway do why aren’t they on the site?

    • Hi Barbara – thanks for your kind and candid feedback. We dont list the pricing because they are subject to change at any time and do change depending on the pool, so it is always best to go to the council website where you can go to each pools site and find their current pricing there (and also if they are open given its winter). Take care and best wishes.
