The Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre is proudly managed by Belgravia Leisure on behalf of Marrickville Council.

 Fanny Durack Aquatic Centre, in the tranquil surrounds of Petersham Park, is a great place to have a dip, do some laps, or just to bring your family for a day out in the sun. Don't forget to make use of our free BBQ's!

With new changing facilities, kids splash deck, toddlers pool and 25m lap pool we have something for everyone. 


Dear Valued Members and Guests,


It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closure of FDAC for the season.


We appreciate your patronage and support over the past 5 months and we look forward to seeing you again later in the year.


Our sister site, Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre is an indoor heated pool and is open throughout the year- so you will still be able to get your swim fix! 





 Keep Watch Public Pool Policy

  • Children (under 15 years) are not allowed entry unless under active supervision of a person 16 years or older. 
  • Parents and guardians should actively supervise their children at all times. As such, they should be dressed ready for action, including unexpected entry to a pool.
  • For 0-5 year olds and non-swimmers a parent or guardian is in the water at all times within arms' reach of the child. It is best if you are engaging with your child i.e. playing with them, talking to them.
  • For 6-10 year olds constant active supervision is required. Be prepared to get wet and enter the water with this age group.
  • For 11-14 year olds it is recommended that a parents check up on their child by physically going to the point where they are in or around the water.
