The perfect free activity for all in the Limestone coast
Spring has arrived in South Australia, making it much more pleasant for outdoor swimming. Nestled in the back streets of Naracoorte, and a short walk from the main road, you will find the Naracoorte Swimming Lake, an old-time favourite for locals and tourists.

Perfect weather for outdoor swimming.


This huge man-made lake with concrete floor and walls, ranges from 1m to 2m deep. It holds a walking platform and diving pontoon in the middle section, lane swimming, shallow sections for children, a shaded enclosed kids area and a small sandy beach.

Diving pontoon.


Although this is a man-made lake, there are certainly so many positives to visiting - it is free to enter, the swimming lake caters for the entire family, leisure and lap swimmers can both enjoy, and its size genuinely cannot be understated (it truly is huge) making it so different from traditional public pools, as it never feels crowded. The spot also offers plenty of lawn areas, shaded areas, child-friendly facilities, change rooms/showers, toilets and car parking. Nearby you can find a kiosk and BBQ facilities, making it so easy to spend the entire day there, either on your own or with family and friends.

The Naracoorte Swimming Lake is the perfect spot for refreshing after visiting the local caves, a leisurely pit stop on the drive from Adelaide to Mount Gambier or a destination for those camping and caravaning the stunning Limestone Coast.
