School Bookings

Due to recent changes to the NSW Department of Education Swimming and Water Safety Program, a larger than usual demand for school Learn to Swim lessons has occurred across our facilities. While staff will endeavour to accommodate your student's needs, we ask for your patience while the team works through the influx of booking requests. 

To find out if your desired dates and times are available, please email Aquatic@dubbo.nsw.gov.au with as many details as possible. A member of the Bookings team will get in touch with you within 5 working days.


Please consider the following suggestions to increase the possibility of your booking being successful:

  • Book a morning session. Most afternoon sessions have been fully booked for the remainder of Term 4, 2020.
  • Supply Learn to Swim Instructors from your school and book lanes at the facility of your choice
  • Consider a school excursion to Wellington or Geurie facilities as Dubbo is receiving the highest number of booking requests
