A survey of the winter water temperatures in Adelaide's indoor public swimming pools has revealed Adelaide's warmest swimming pool and Adelaide's warmest lap pool. Warm water swimming can be a great way to re-heat your bones, increase blood circulation and enjoy some exercise at the same time.

The warmest indoor swimming pools in Adelaide are the 25 metre lap pool at Portside Swim and Leisure Centre in Largs Bay and the hydrotherapy pool at Thebarton Aquatic Centre in Torrensville. Both of these pools are kept at a cosy 33 degrees Celsius and were 1 to 6 degrees warmer than most other indoor public swimming pools in Adelaide.

Warm water lap swimming to get you moving again on cold days
The hydrotherapy pool at Thebarton Aquatic Centre has two lanes, is 10 metres long and 1.3 metres deep, so it is large enough to move around in, but not suitable for serious lap swimming. Entry to the hydrotherapy pool is included in the entry price to the centre. The pool is sometimes booked for classes or rehabilitation sessions, but there is public access available 7 days a week at the times listed on the pool website. The centre also has a 25 metre lap pool that is heated to 29 degrees in winter.

The Portside Swim and Leisure Centre lap pool is at an elevated temperature because it is mostly used for kids swimming lessons. Public swimming is available on most weekdays in the morning, the early afternoon, and the evening, but not in the few hours after school and not on weekends except for a two hour window on Saturday. It is a good idea to check the pool's website for these details before you go.

The full survey results include the warmest temperatures at every indoor public swimming pool in Adelaide, so you can also look up the warmest pool that is nearest to you.

Hi Brad
A noticeable absent from your list is Noarlunga Aquatic Centre. I wonder what their temp is. Cheers. Phil
