Riverway Lagoons

NOTICE: 12/09/19

The Riverway Lagoons will be re-opening on Saturday 21 September 2019 (both Upper and Lower Lagoons). There will be toilets, showers and an all ability toilet in front of the Riverway Arts Centre for public use as the existing facilities are still unavailable. In addition the toilets at Riverway Stadium will remain available for public use.

The Riverway Arts Centre, including Pinnacles Gallery, is still CLOSED due to damage from the unprecedented rain event earlier this year.  The Riverway Arts Centre will remain closed until further notice until repairs have been completed and it is safe for public re-entry to the facility.

The Riverway Lagoons cover an area in size of more than three Olympic swimming pools. The lagoons are nestled among shady raintrees, with the picturesque Ross River providing a peaceful backdrop. The surrounding well established raintrees, together with the extensive overhangs of the Riverway Arts Centre roof and additional shade structures, provide a protected year-round safe swimming environment.

The two distinct lagoon areas vary in depth up to 2m. The upper lagoon is designed for more formal uses, including an area for swimming laps and specific areas for disabled and elderly access, with hand rails and suitable water levels. The lower lagoon is more relaxed and is an ideal place for the kids build sand castles and play in shallow water while the rest of the family can lounge on the timber decks in the shade.
