Pool safety

Council supports the Keep Watch public education program of the Royal Life Saving Society - Australia.

Keep Watch @ Council Pools

For 0-5 year olds and non-swimmers, a parent or guardian must be in the water at all times within arms' reach of the child/non-swimmer.

For 6-10 year olds, constant active supervision is required by a parent or guardian. Be prepared to get wet and enter the water with this age group.

For 11-14 year olds, parents or guardians must physically check on children on a regular basis.

Botany Aquatic Centre Upgrade

The Botany Aquatic Centre upgrade moves a step closer following Council's decision to approve the development option put forward at its final Meeting of 2019.

Birthday parties

Botany Aquatic Centre is an accessible self-service venue where parents must set-up before the party, and clean up when finished.

Our picnic tables are available on a first in, first served basis. We encourage parents to arrive as early as possible to reserve a table, otherwise we have large grass areas with space for blankets. 

Four electric BBQs are also available on a first in, first served basis. BBQs can be used to cook any food you bring for the party, and must be cleaned before leaving the centre.

Outside gas, electric, or any other BBQ are not permitted to be used at the centre.

Birthday entry to BAC

Access to the venue is only permitted with an entry ticket, so organisers should arrange specific pick-up times when all children will be brought to the reception area for drop-off and pick-up.

Children can also be paged over the loudspeaker system when a parent arrives for pick-up.

Food storage

Cold food storage isn’t available at the centre, so we recommend parents bring only ready-to-eat foods and avoid ice-cream cakes, cream filled cakes or any other cold foods.

Strictly no alcohol, glass, party poppers, or water balloons and bombs are allowed on the premises.

Discount books

Discount books may be purchased to save on multiple tickets, and can be used for the rest of the season. 

  • 20 x child tickets can be purchased for $85, down from $110 for 20 tickets at reception 
  • 20 x adult tickets for $125, down from $150 for 20 tickets at reception.

Tickets from a discount book must be allocated to guests at reception by a person from the party.

Visit the kiosk for any questions about services or catering. Call 9316 6218 for any further enquiries.
