Diving Back In: Sawtell & Woolgoolga Pools Set to Reopen

Published on 04 September 2023


Sawtell and Woolgoolga Pools will reopen to the public for the 2023/24 season on Monday 9 October.

Both Pools are set to open 7 days a week from Monday 9 October through to 28 April 2024, closing only for some public holidays during that period.

“Pre-season preparations and checks are underway at our two satellite pools at Woopi and Sawtell,” said Ian Fitzgibbon, Acting Director City Planning & Communities at City of Coffs Harbour.

“We can’t wait to reopen again for the 2023/24 season and see the community dive back in and enjoy the facilities.”

Opening hours for these two Pools will be the same as last season, 6am to 1pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 2pm on weekends.

During the peak summer period (27 December to 25 January), hours will be increased to 6am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm Saturday, and 10am-4pm Sunday.

Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool, as always, is open all year round.

There are a variety of casual roles available during the upcoming season at the Pools, including lifeguard jobs. The Royal Life Saving Society is running a lifeguard training course in Coffs Harbour later this month for people seeking accreditation.

Anyone interested in finding out more about the casual vacancies is asked to contact Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool on 6652 1779.
