Our 50 metre heated indoor lap pool is available year-round for lap swimming, aqua aerobics, swimming lessons and aqua play. Enjoy the health benefits of swimming in all seasons. We welcome bookings for school programs, sports clubs and social groups.

Fun pool (kids pool)

Our heated indoor leisure pool is suitable for young children and toddler play all year round. It includes beach entry and a depth of up to 1 metre. Have fun and build your child's confidence around the water in the cooler months.

Toddlers' pool

Our heated indoor toddlers' pool features a beach entry, water jets, and a maximum depth of 40 centimetres. It's perfect for crawlers, walkers, and babies who are beginning to explore water.

Hydrotherapy pool

Our hydrotherapy pool is perfect for gentle swimming, wading and water-based exercises. The pool is heated to approximately 35 degrees Celsius, which can have therapeutic benefits on the musculoskeletal system. The pool is only available to patrons over the age of 16 and is not recommended for patrons who are pregnant, ill or have a heart condition.

During certain period of the day, use of the hydrotherapy pool is reserved for aquatic group fitness classes and private physiotherapy sessions. Visiting our hydrotherapy pool timetable page for a full summary of the pools availability.

Please note: use of the hydrotherapy pool incurs an additional fee for casual visitors to Dandenong Oasis.

Spa and sauna 

The spa and sauna are ideal for helping muscle pain and aiding relaxation. Both are available to use for people over 16 for an additional fee. The spa and sauna are not recommended for patrons who are pregnant, ill or have a heart condition. Please note our sauna is a 'dry sauna' and no water is to be poured on the element to create steam. 

  • Watch Around Water Policy Information

    At YMCA Victoria we are a Watch Around Water endorsed aquatic safety organisation. The following information is the new watch around water policy launched in centre from 1 September 2019.

    Watch Around Water is a set of industry guidelines outlining the minimum supervision requirements of young children at all affiliated aquatic venues.

    Children under 5 years old

    All Children MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18 and supervised within arms’ reach, at all times in the water.

    All children MUST wear a pink wristband supplied by YMCA staff to help identify their age while swimming.

    Children will not be admitted without a full fee paying parent/guardian who must also be in the water at all times. Groups will not be admitted entry where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children under 5 years exceeds the ratio of 1:2 (effective September 1 2019).

    Children under 10 years old

    All Children under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18. All children MUST be actively supervised by an adult over the age of 18 at all times. The adult must have a clear and active view of the child with no physical or structural barriers between them (this includes tech and devices).

    All children MUST wear a yellow wristband supplied by YMCA staff to help identify their age while swimming. Groups will not be admitted entry where the number of parents/guardians supervising a group of children under 10 years exceeds the ratio of 1:4.

    Birthday Parties

    All children under the age of 10 MUST be accompanied into the Centre by a person over the age of 18 and handed over to the supervision of the birthday party leader (staff member).

    All birthday party participants must wear a BLUE wristband AND an age based wristband (pink or yellow) to identify their participation in a party (effective September 1 2019). The adult guardian of the birthday party child MUST remain accessible and actively supervise the group at all times.

    At the conclusion of the birthday party the child/children will remain in the supervision of the birthday party leader and supervising parent until physically handed over to their supervising parent/guardian.
