Maybe you love swimming laps. Perhaps a leisurely soak is your favourite way to cool down. Or, nothing could say summer to you quite like hanging out poolside. Whichever category fits, you might've lived the pool life at one of Brisbane's City Council's public venues, especially if you don't have your own backyard spot to splash in. This upcoming summer, for $2 a pop, you really should.

From Friday, December 1, 2023–Thursday, February 29, 2024 Brisbane's City Council is slashing the entry fee to all 22 of its public pools around the River City. For the entire three months of summer, having a splash will only cost you $2. Set to be part of the 2023–24 council budget, the program is named $2 Summer Dips for obvious reasons, and that discounted price will apply to everyone — adults and kids alike.

If you haven't hit up a public pool for a while, it's a considerable saving, dropping the adult entry price from $6.40 to $2. The reduced rate will also cover every single day across the period, too, which includes all of the Christmas and New Year public holidays.

And, there's no other catches or caveats — including no limit on how many times you can take advantage of the deal. Fancy going for a swim at your local every day during summer? Working your way around Brisbane's public pools, diving into a different one daily? Both are options.

The 22 pools include Centenary Pool, Spring Hill Baths and the Valley Pool, plus Musgrave Park Swimming Centre, the Colmslie Aquatic Centre in Morningside, Ithaca Pool in Paddington, Dunlop Park Memorial Swimming Pool in Corinda and Hibiscus Sports Complex Pool in Upper Mount Gravatt.

Newmarket Olympic Swimming Pool, Chermside Pool, Bellbowrie Pool, Jindalee Pool and Manly Pool are all covered as well, as are Yeronga Park Memorial Swimming Pool, Mt Gravatt East Swimming Pool and Sandgate Aquatic Centre — and more.
