ROAD TO REOPEN
We’re working towards a 1 November season open
On Sunday 19 September the Victorian Government announced its phased Roadmap to Deliver the National Plan. The Roadmap sets us on a steady path to reopening Victoria. When vaccination thresholds are reached, public health advice allows certain restrictions to be safely lifted, with key milestones determining our ability to open Pines.
We’ve been taking time to pick through the details of this Roadmap, and what this means for opening Pines for the season. Based on what we know today, outdoor swimming pools should be able to open to fully vaccinated patrons on or around the 26th of October. This means Pines may be able to open for its usual season start on 1 November 2021. This date is subject to confirmation from the Victorian Government that we have reached the vaccination threshold requirements to safely reopen.
We are busy working behind the scenes, focussing our planning and energy on new processes and requirements to help keep our community safe. Facilities like Pines have never had to contend with vaccinated entries before. We have a challenging task ahead of us to ensure we can comply with the Premier’s restrictions as set out for outdoor pools, and at the same time offer community health and wellbeing services.
We will continue to update you on our Season Open journey, so please keep checking back here for all the latest! Fingers crossed we can get back to the pool really soon!
PS. The water is looking soooo good, clear and ready to dive in… We can’t wait!

POOL ENTRY CONDITIONS
BOOKINGS AND PAYMENT
Booking is no longer required for swimming sessions. For all aqua classes, please book and pay online via the Pines website or at reception. You will be required to provide your contact details for contact tracing.
Face masks remain mandatory when you cannot keep 1.5 meters apart outdoors and all the time indoors, therefore we ask that your face masks are still in place as you queue to enter the facility and in the change rooms (unless a medical exemption applies).
During this reopening period some facilities will be unavailable. Please check signage for further details. .
Where possible please spread out and utilise all available lanes. Try not to ‘rest’ for too long at the end of each lane.
BRING YOUR OWN
We ask you to please ensure you bring your own towel, bottle, goggles and thongs for all swims.
Maintain social distancing at all times and use hand sanitiser provided.
