Recreational Facilities

The Blue Baths has 4 thermally heated swimming & soaking Pools. There is a Museum within the old changing rooms which documents the colourful history of the building since its opening in 1933, when it was the first facility in the southern hemisphere to allow "the hitherto unknown pleasure of mixed sex bathing."
Just outside the front door in Government Gardens there is Lawn Bowling, Croquet and Petanque which together with the Blue Baths facilities, offers excellent opportunities for team-building and partner programmes.
