Surf Coast Shire Council Says...

The downturn in attendee numbers at the Winchelsea Pool can in part be attributed to a milder than seasonal summer. The average temperature in the 2019-2020 season was 23.6C compared to 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 seasons with average temperatures of 26C. The pool was able to run for it's normal season and was not impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
