Katheri​​n​e Aquatic Centre

Closure of all YMCA Recreation and Aquatic Facilities

The situation around coronavirus (COVID-19) is rapidly evolving.  We are working on advice from the Northern Territory Government, in association with the Chief Medical Officer and the Department of Health to understand how the YMCA of the NT can support all measures to protect the health of our team, our patrons and our communities.

As directed, to reduce the spread of COVID-19, in conjunction with our contract partners, we are temporarily closing YMCA of the Northern Territory Recreation and Aquatic Facilities.

All YMCA NT Recreation and Aquatic facilities will be temporarily closed from close of business Wednesday 25 March until further notice. All programs and services will cease during the closure period.


The YMCA in Katherine has an Olympic size ​50m 6 lane outdoor pool with a toddler/baby pool and a water park. We have 2 commando runs available for hire - Rocky Road and the Rooster (Toddler). The pool temp stays approx. 27-32 degrees all year around.​

The services we offer at the pool include:
  • Swimming Lessons
  • Intensives swimming lessons (during the wet season school holidays)
  • Seniors Aqua Aerobics
  • General Aqua Aerobics
  • Squad – Please not the YMCA does not run a squad but we work closely with the Katherine Squad. For more information please contact Pru Ducey: 0417 186 865 Ruth Millikan: 0402 244 300
