ANNETTE KELLERMAN AQUATIC CENTRE

Remember being a kid and riding your bike down to the local swimming pool? Having heated dive bomb contests and buying little white bags of red frogs? In those days no indoor swimming pool would have cut it. The Annette Kellerman pool does. It harnesses the latest and greatest of eco-tech and is illuminated with natural light. The swimmer’s eyes take on a special opaque sparkle in this tranquil atrium. The long list of community activities caters for the kiddies, the oldies and everyone in between. Mum will still be upset with you for eating too many frogs though. (LC)
