More weekend swimming in Orbost
Feb 23, 2023
The Orbost Outdoor Pool will extend its weekend opening hours until the end of the swim season.

East Gippsland Shire Council has responded to community feedback and a late in the season temperature spike to open the pool from 12-7pm on Saturdays and Sundays when the forecast is 25 degrees Celsius or above for the remainder of this season. This is an increase from the normal 3-7pm opening hours and starts this weekend.

All other opening hours remain unchanged.
