Everything you need to know about Canberra Aqua Park

Posted on

Summer ’19/20 is set to be a cracker with the opening of the Canberra Aqua Park.

A 1,600 square metre inflatable obstacle course, Canberra Aqua Park is planning to operate throughout the warmer months until March 2020. But how do tickets work, how long is a visit and what do you wear?

We’ve got everything you need to know.

What exactly is it?

Canberra Aqua Park is essentially a giant inflatable obstacle course that floats on top of the lake.

When will it open and close?

Canberra Aqua Park will be open until March 2020.

It’s operational seven days a week from 10 am until 4 pm except for Christmas Day 2019.

How’s the water quality? I thought the lake wasn’t swimmable?

The water at Black Mountain Peninsula is safe and of excellent quality.

Frequent water tests are completed by the National Capital Authority.

What do I wear?

Swimwear, obviously, although by the looks of the course we’d recommend something a little, ahem, sturdy that’s not going to come off as you bounce, slide and jump through the obstacles. Sun protection is strongly encouraged, such as rash vests.

Life jackets must be worn on the course and are included in the ticket price and no footwear of any sort is allowed on the inflatables.

How much is it?

Tickets for one session are $20 per person, per session with special rates for families. Check out the website for more information.

How long does a session go for?

Each session runs for 50 minutes. Sessions run on the hour, the first starting at 10 am and the last one at 4 pm.

How do I book tickets?

Tickets can be bought online or at the Aqua Park, but booking is recommended so that you don’t miss out on the session time you want.

Do spectators have to pay?

Entry to the park is free for spectators, with plenty of grassy areas to sit back and watch the fun.

Do I have to sign an exercise waiver?

Upon entering the park, all guests—spectators included—are required to sign a waiver. Parents or guardians are required to sign for people under 18 years of age.

Is there an age minimum or limit?

Children must be five years old to use the Aqua Park. Children between five and nine years old must be accompanied on the inflatables by a paying adult.

Maximum of one adult per six kids.

Are there lifeguards? How do we know the rules?

There will always be lifeguards present at the Aqua Park and these lifeguards will start each session with a safety briefing, so you’ll be across the rules before you jump on.

What happens if the weather is bad?

The Aqua Park will only close in the case of extremely bad weather, such as strong winds or electrical storms.

In the case of bad weather, tickets will be rebooked for another day.

Where can I park?

Contrary to anywhere else in this city, there is plenty of free parking at Black Mountain Peninsula.

You can find the location on Google Maps here.

What’s the toilet and change room situation?

There are toilets nearby in the Black Mountain Peninsula Park but there are no change room facilities, so it’s recommended to come already dressed for the session.

What’s the go with cancellations?

While there are no refunds, bookings can be changed up to 24 hours before your original session is about to start.
