Member Safety

The health and safety of members is our number one priority.  Swimming is an active sport and participation is not without risk; we ask that all members acknowledge and adhere to the following:

  • Swimmers are to use their own discretion before entering the baths, and to visually inspect the water before swimming
  • Do not swim if the water is discoloured, smells unusual, or has significant amounts of rubbish or plant litter.
  • The baths are unsupervised, no lifeguards are present
  • No running, unsafe or dangerous behaviour
  • No pushing or throwing persons into the water
  • No bombing or excessive splashing
  • No glass permitted in the swimming area
  • Follow the direction of race marshals and the race starter
  • Only enter the water when it is safe to do so
  • Exercise caution using the entry/exit ladders, particularly at low tide
  • Observe Council signage and rules, including in the change facilities
  • The changing room floors can be slippery when wet
  • Take care around the BBQ areas which are hot when in operation
