Swimming Lessons

Your children will be given the opportunity to explore the water in a safe and encouraging environment. Our beautiful indoor heated pool at Great Ocean Road Resort allows us to offer lessons all year round. 

Lessons run for 25 minutes, allowing 5 minutes for discussion with students and parents / carers to facilitate feedback and ensure clear communication of skill progression. 


Lessons on offer will include infant and preschool aquatics for children aged 6 months to 4 years, as well as swimming and water safety skills from 4 to 6 years. Parents or carers will be able to join their little ones in the water until they’re old enough to start swimming independently in our beautiful indoor facility, located in Anglesea. We understand the importance of ensuring both child and parent feel comfortable, safe and supported and look forward to offering a wonderful learning experience.
