You may have noticed the road works around our Queenstown office and library located on Gorge Road. Don’t worry, both are still open so pop in and see our friendly team! For information on the road works underway, please visit our Major Projects page.

The Frankton and Wānaka Transfer Station facilities will close every Sunday, starting 27 November until 8 January 2023, due to staff shortages. Both facilities will be open 8.00am-5.00pm Monday to Saturday. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Holiday swim weeks

Mix up the kids' school holidays with swim classes at Alpine Aqualand (Queenstown Events Centre) and Wānaka Recreation Centre. 

A 30-minute swimming lesson each day is an intensive way for children to rapidly develop their swimming skills and enhance their technique.

As part of our learn to swim programme, we encourage you to use our public pools before and after lessons (we suggest after so students aren’t tired for their class). This is included in the cost of lessons so there’s no need to pay pool entry for the person being taught (but accompanying family members and friends do need to pay!). It’s a great opportunity to practise new skills.

    • 30-minute group lessons are held at Alpine Aqualand between 9.00am-12.00pm for most pre-school and school age levels

    • $62.50 per child per week (i.e. five lessons)

    December 2022

    We are offering private lessons and limited group classes from Monday 19 December to Friday 23 December.
