Fun in the pools!

The wave pool and giant slide operate daily throughout the school holidays*, and you might also like to try out our new fun features: the rainbow water arches and tipping buckets. The water temperature at the Ryde Aquatic Leisure Centre is a pleasant 29°C all year round and you’ll never have problems with sunburn, sand in your cossie or bluebottles!
