How to book a Family Fun Swim session using the app.

UPDATE: From 1 June 2024 we are removing bookings for Family Fun Swim and Relaxed Swim sessions at our pools.

The exceptions are Gracemount Leisure Centre, where booking is still required for ASN Family Fun sessions and Inflatable Fun sessions, and Balerno High School where booking remain necessary for Family Fun Swim since there is no on-site payment option. But don't worry, you can still easily book these sessions through our website and app.
