Makino Aquatic Centre at Level 2

Please note there are some things you need to know to make sure that your visit to the Makino Aquatic Centre is safe for both you and our staff. 

In order to comply with Ministry of Health guidelines for Level 2, we have had to make some changes to how we operate. At Level 2 all access to the Makino is for structured swimming / programmes only. Thank you for your understanding. Our priority is ensuring the health and safety of our customers and community at this time.

See our Level 2 Timetable below for more details about when you can visit the Makino. Make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment as numbers are restricted. You can book your space through our website for lane swimming / lane walking here or for an aqua fitness class here.

We now offer recreational swimming on a limited basis during weekends and public holidays . See here for more information about recreational swimming.

Our Level 2 Timetable will be in place until further notice. Thank you for your cooperation.


Learn to Swim Customers: Please see your enrolment confirmation relevant Term 2 information.

Current members: If you hold a current membership with us, we will be extending the expiry date of your membership to reflect the number of days our complex has remained closed due to the national COVID-19 satiation.

Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for future updates.

For all COVID-19 information and updates, please visit the New Zealand Government Unite Against Covid-19 website.
