The Central Goldfields Shire has two outdoor pools which operate throughout the summer period in Dunolly and Talbot.

The Outdoor Pool season will run from December, 2022 to March, 2023.

All pools only open when the forecast temperature is 25oC or over. All COVID-19 Regulations will apply. For more information on Council’s Outdoor Pools contact the Maryborough Sports and Leisure Centre on (03) 5461 4300.

OUTDOOR POOLS ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED

The Maryborough Outdoor Pool will remain closed until funding can be secured. More information below.

A report on the future of the heritage-listed Maryborough 50 metre pool was endorsed by Council at the July Council Meeting (26/07).

Council will continue to advocate to State and Federal Governments for funding to rebuild the Maryborough 50 metre outdoor pool, with the pool to close until funding can be secured.

The decision comes after a further assessment of the pool identified the condition of the pool has declined since the previous assessment in April 2021 with the pool having reached the ‘end of life’ stage and cannot be re-opened until the pool is demolished and rebuilt.

Using the $2 million in Victorian Government funding announced in 2020 on the 50 metre pool would be a short-term patch job and would not address the increasingly declining integrity of the pool shell.

Council will work with Heritage Victoria to use the $2 million in funding to upgrade the octagonal pool, the plant room and the main entrance building – which will contribute to preserving this significant heritage complex. 

Council is working with Unified Community Sport and Leisure to create opportunities for local residents to access alternative pool facilities during the upcoming summer season. Free entry at the Dunolly and Talbot outdoor pools will be offered with extended opening hours and free entry vouchers for young people (through the FReeZA and Engage program) will be offered at the Maryborough Sports and Leisure Centre.
