NOTICE: The indoor 25m pool at Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre is now closed. Swim School and other programs are still running. There is limited space in the leisure pool due to programming.

The Mandurah Aquatic and Recreation Centre proudly holds the endorsement as a Watch Around Water facility.
Watch Around Water is an educational and public awareness program aimed at addressing the important issue of supervising young children at public swimming pools.

Here are the Watch Around Water guidelines we follow:

  • Children under 5 years old must be accompanied into the facility by a responsible adult aged 16 or older and be supervised within arm's reach at all times.
  • Children under 12 years old must also be accompanied into the facility by a responsible adult aged 16 or older and be supervised within line of sight at all times.

To ensure compliance with these guidelines, we kindly request that if you have a child under 5 years of age, you place a Watch Around Water band on both their wrist and the wrist of the responsible adult accompanying them.
These bands are readily available at our reception desk, or you can approach our friendly lifeguards for assistance.
These bands serve as a visual cue to our vigilant lifeguards, indicating your child's age and helping them ensure that you are maintaining the required proximity to your child at all times.
Your cooperation in adhering to these guidelines ensures a safe and enjoyable experience for all our visitors.

We are committed to making the MARC an inclusive space for every member of our community.
To ensure accessibility, the MARC offers the following facilities:

Adult accessible change rooms: Our facility features an adult accessible change room equipped with an adjustable hand basin, hoist, and a wash-down bed.
Wet wheelchairs: We provide four wet wheelchairs to facilitate access to all our pools. These wheelchairs are designed to make pool entry more accessible.
Ramps to all pools: The MARC has ramps leading to all our pools, ensuring that individuals with mobility challenges can easily access the water and participate in aquatic activities.
Portable hoist: For added convenience, we offer a portable hoist that can be used in all our pools and the spa. This hoist is a valuable tool for individuals who require assistance with getting in and out of the water.

Our commitment to accessibility means that everyone can enjoy the benefits of our aquatic and recreational facilities. We look forward to welcoming you and ensuring that your experience at MARC is comfortable and inclusive.
