The school holidays are just around the corner and with the weather warming up, one of the best places to cool off will be the Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre (TRAC) in Murwillumbah.
From Monday 20 September, the pool’s water slide will be open from 10 am to 3pm during the holidays.
The children’s leisure area and the 50m pool will also be open but the diving boards will remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions in place.
Patrons will need to check in with a QR code with staff checking to confirm a green tick.
Masks must be worn inside the facility at all times except when in the water and capacity numbers for the change room and venues are also in place with physical distancing at 4 m2 indoors and 2 m2 outdoors.
The TRAC facilities at Kingscliff and Tweed Heads South will resume normal operating hours from Monday as well although the Tweed Heads South pool will be closed on Thursday 23 September from 12 pm due to an Essential Energy planned outage.
While at TRAC Murwillumbah, load up your Why Leave Town card which can also be spent at the facility.
The Why Leave Town campaign aims to encourage locals to shop locally and spend locally and is being initially trialled in Murwillumbah.
You can put any amount from $10 to $1000 on the cards which are recognised by more than 50 businesses in Murwillumbah displaying Why Leave Town stickers and posters.
The cards are valid for 3 years and are a convenient way of supporting Murwillumbah businesses who have been doing in tough during COVID-19 restrictions.
Cards can be given as gifts, prizes or even rewards and by registering your card when you load up at TRAC, you can safeguard yourself against loss of theft.
