Wellington Shire Council operates outdoor seasonal swimming pools in Heyfield, Maffra, Rosedale, Sale, Stratford, and Yarram. Outdoor pools will open on Friday 20 November 2020 with the exception of Sale Outdoor Pool and operate daily with a 25 degree temperature trigger, advised by the Bureau of Meteorology at 4pm on the day before.
Please read the information below if you are planning a visit to an outdoor pool during summer.
Our contractors upgrading the Sale outdoor pool and plant have experienced a delay in the project completion, which means we can’t open the Sale outdoor pools as planned this Friday 20 November.
The toddler pool will be available from Friday 27 November and the 50m pool from Friday 4 December.
Sale will have its own Free Swim on Friday 4 December.
We are as disappointed as you are about this delay and we can’t wait to see you at the Sale outdoor pools open as soon as possible.
