We are looking forward to seeing old friends and new for the upcoming 2024 season.

Booking will remain as the previous few years, by using the ACTiO app. Full details can be found on our Bookings and Procedures page.

We are proud of our friendly atmosphere, with swimmers and triathletes of all abilities enjoying our facilities. Where you are new to open water swimming or looking to improve, our 500m and 1000m courses offer something for everyone. Heron Lake really is the perfect open water swimming venue.


Part of our operating ethos is to provide a safe environment for you to swim in and so we will be operating the NOWCA lake management system. If you’re new to NOWCA you will need to register with them on-line for a seasonal membership. To find out more about the NOWCA system click here.


Please read our Bookings and Procedures page to familiarise yourself with our protocols. Everything is in place so we can ensure the safety of both our staff and fellow swimmers.
