Welcome to SWELL Palmerston

SWELL construction is finished, and Palmerston’s ultimate fitness and leisure destination is now open and FREE to enter until 2026! Have you tried it out yet? There is endless excitement for the whole family, and best of all it is free!


SWELL’s commitment to inclusivity is evident with accessibility ramps into both pools ensuring comfort for everyone. The splash and play space provides a safe entry for everyone to enjoy the water, keep cool, and stay active. All amenities are fully accessible, including a dedicated adult change table.

You might have noticed our ‘change village’ which offers an open and safe space for families to keep sight of little ones at all times. Providing access for all is the driving focus behind SWELL and City of Palmerston encourages you to grab your loved ones and embark on an unforgettable day of shared laughter and adventures at SWELL.


The GOswim Program at SWELL Palmerston runs for 48 weeks a year, with a 4-week Christmas break. There are lessons for infants, pre-schoolers, primary students, adults, and developmental squads.

The Water Smart Program offers a unique blend of theory and practical lessons, promoting swimming skills and water safety. Assignments for home sharing and open water experience empower students to make safe aquatic decisions.
