A boil water is in place for businesses and properties across Queenstown following a number of confirmed local cases of illness caused by the protozoa, cryptosporidium. This affects all properties serviced by the Council’s Queenstown supply including Frankton, Quail Rise and Tucker Beach Rd, Kelvin Heights and Hanley’s Farm. Read more here.

From Monday 18 September there will be no parking available directly outside the Gorge Road Council office due to construction activity associated with the Town Centre Arterial Road. Our Gorge Road Council office will be open as usual. But if you’d prefer, you can make use of our online services via our website or give us a call on 03 441 0499.

The state of local emergency in Queenstown, originally declared on Friday morning after a severe weather event, has been lifted. However, some restrictions will remain in place to protect public safety as the focus turns to recovery. Full information here.

About Enduro Swim

Enduro Swim  is aimed at those who enjoy the added motivation of working with a qualified squad coach.

Whether you want to increase your fitness or compete in triathlons or multi-sport events, Enduro Swim could be perfect for you.

Set in a group environment, Enduro Swim is a 90-minute session suitable for strong swimmers aged 13 and over. The squad is led by an experienced coach.

With a wealth of professional experience, our coach will deliver a progressive, measurable, goal-based programme to guide swimmers toward their own personal ambitions in and out of the water. We also aim to build a fun, social culture within the group to help our swimmers feel like they are contributing to the whole squad no matter their individual skills or fitness level.

    • Swimmers should purchase their term blocks during the school holiday period before each term.

    • Term blocks are non-refundable (extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case-by-case basis).

    • Term blocks can be purchased in person at reception, online or over the phone with our customer service team on 03 450 9005.

    • On entry, all swimmers must pay for their pool entry either by swiping their gym/swim membership card or paying for a casual entry each time.

    • The coach will record attendance and current memberships for each session.
