Coronavirus disease (COVID-19):

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a current health issue. We are regularly monitoring the most up-to-date information provided by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. Find out more.

Carnegie Pool Bookings


Carnegie Swim Centre is temporarily closed due to a significant leak in the 50M pool causing more than 150,000 litres of water to be lost each day.
Further investigations into the leak are underway which will take longer than first anticipated due to the scale of the problem. To allow for adequate investigation, Carnegie Swim Centre will remain closed until 30 November. We will provide a further update prior to this date.
We apologise for the inconvenience and would like to reassure our community that we are doing all we can, along with our contractors, to get our much-loved pool open again.
Booking spaces have been expanded at Glen Eira Sports and Aquatic Centre to cope with the extra demand and there will be even greater availability from Monday 23 November due to planned easing of restrictions.
We thank you for your patience during this time.
