Ceduna’s Ocean Pool makes a splash for Summer

Ceduna swimmers are making a splash, thanks to a newly renovated swimming enclosure and a $680,000 accessible platform at the town jetty.

Funded through the Federal Government’s Community Infrastructure Program, the project is a huge asset for the Oyster Capital.

Locals had long aspired to have a safe swimming enclosure in the ocean, with a community group working closely with council and concerted efforts being made for over a decade to have the facility put in place.

With a history of fatal shark attacks in the waters off the Great Australian Bight, a safe enclosure, with shark-proof netting and a space for parents to watch their children swim was a key objective.

In 2018, the first ocean pool enclosure was opened, but it faced a closure earlier this year, due to issues with the net and pontoon. The new facility includes a fixed tiered platform, better equipped to hold up against storms and tidal movement.

Locals are already experiencing the positive impact of the renovations, which were officially opened by Rowan Ramsey MP and Mayor Ken Maynard in November, with the fixed platform providing stability and additional space for families to gather.

The revamped enclosure, was quick to become a popular destination, offering a safe and enjoyable swimming experience for Ceduna locals and visitors to the stunning Eyre Peninsula region.
