Pool Rules

We have pool rules displayed at each pool to ensure that everyone is able to enjoy the pools and the grounds in a safe and happy manner.   Our Lifeguards are charged with the safety of all users and will enact our discipline policy when the rules are not followed.   View the discipline policy here.

All Hepburn Shire Council outdoor pools (Clunes, Daylesford & Trentham) are actively involved in Life Saving Victoria’s Watch Around Water pool safety program.

  • Children Under 5 must be accompanied in the water by a parent (or carer) or person over the age of 16, remaining within arms reach.
  • Children under 10 must be clearly and constantly visible and remain directly accessible.
  • All children must be actively supervised at all times.  Unsupervised children (of any age) will be removed from the water if the lifeguard is concerned for their safety.
