Sawtell and Woolgoolga Pools Reopening

Both Sawtell and Woolgoolga pools will reopen to the public next Monday.

SAWTELL and Woolgoolga Pools will reopen to the public from Monday 14 November 2022 – and they’re offering casual summer job opportunities for locals.

Both pools had been closed ahead of upgrade works due to begin this year.

Those redevelopment plans are now to be revisited in the 2023-2024 financial year.

“The pools have undergone some necessary maintenance, which is why their reopening has been slightly delayed,” said Steve Bayliss, City of Coffs Harbour’s Director Business Services.

“The widespread staff shortages which are currently affecting most service industries mean that both pools will initially operate from 6am to 1pm Monday to Friday and from 10am to 2pm at weekends.

“We traditionally secure additional staff as the university semester and school terms end, and it’s planned to open for longer as we enter the holiday season.

“Early indications are that we will have a full complement of staff by mid-December, which will enable us to operate as normal.”

The staff shortages are also having an impact on Learn to Swim classes so the program will be operating only at the Coffs Harbour War Memorial Olympic Pool.

There are a variety of casual roles available during the summer season at the pools, including lifeguard jobs.

The Royal Life Saving Society is running a lifeguard training course in Coffs Harbour later this month for people seeking accreditation.
