Miami Aquatic Centre to open this Friday following major upgrade

The Miami Aquatic Centre is set to finally unveil its long-awaited expansion!

The iconic Gold Coast pool, home to Rackley Swimming, will celebrate its opening on Friday 14 May, revealing the new and fully accessible 50m outdoor pool, an indoor heated learn to swim pool, a splash pool and Pool Deck Cafe.

Jay Clarke, Managing Director of City Venue Management, said he is excited for Gold Coasters to see the new-look aquatic centre.


“Having operated the venue for the past 12 years, we know how much it means to the local community,” he said.

“Now, our community will have a revitalised and first-class facility to enjoy healthy, active lifestyles.

“In addition to the new 50m, 10-lane outdoor pool, there’s also a brand-new indoor heated programs pool; perfect for Rackley Swimming’s Learn to Swim programs, as well as for rehabilitation use.

“The addition of our Pool Deck Café will be another great offering for all of our visitors — as it will provide fresh healthy food prepared by our onsite chefs! And thanks to the venue’s strong focus on accessibility, we’ll be able to deliver even more services to people with a disability.”

Miami Aquatic Centre manager Matthew (Izzy) said he can’t wait to open the doors to the public.

“We want to open it with a bang! So we’re hosting a Family Fun Day this Saturday to welcome all of our regular families, as well as any new visitors,” he said

“There will be free entry from 12pm and plenty of family-friendly activities. We’ve even organised a jumping castle, live band, lucky door prizes and an inflatable obstacle course in the pool — all for free!

“We also invite you to bring down your kids to experience Rackley Swimming. There’ll be free Come & Try lessons for all children 6 months and older.

“These will be held in our new, bigger indoor Learn to Swim pool, which will be heated to the perfect temperature (32 degrees) for both kids and adults to enjoy the water.

“Best of all, the first 100 families through the door will receive a complementary Rackley Swimming and City Sport gift pack — so we’ll see you at 12!”
