Coronavirus update

Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre to close for at least two weeks

The health and safety of members, guests and staff is always our primary concern.

Due to the rapidly developing situation with COVID-19, we have made the tough decision to close the Doone Kennedy Hobart Aquatic Centre (DKHAC) for at least two weeks from the close of business on Tuesday, March 17.

We will base the decision on whether to re-open in a fortnight on the information available at the time.

In light of prevention measures currently being recommended by health authorities such as social distancing, we have made this decision in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our members, guests and staff.

DKHAC is a multi-faceted centre, including a gym, group fitness classes, a cafe and our swimming pools.  A large number of people visit the centre every day including people who may be considered vulnerable to COVID-19.

This closure follows on from yesterday’s cancellation of the Aquatic Program, including Learn to Swim classes, for the rest of term one. See our swim school page for more information.

Current members will be contacted with further information regarding their membership.

For the latest advice, information and resources about COVID-19 go to the Australian Government Department of Health website at and follow the link from the homepage.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this challenging period, we hope to see you back at the centre as soon as possible and will continue to inform you of changes and decisions as they come to light.
