How to book a party

Please complete our online interactive birthday party booking form (below) and email to swimcentre@marion.sa.gov.au. Once we receive your email, we will contact you to advise availability and confirm booking details. We require a $50 deposit to secure the booking.

Party Details

Parties are available for children from the age of 5. We accommodate for a minimum of 10 and maximum of 15 children.

Your dedicated party host will take your group through a rotation of party activities for 1 hour including pool games, water slides and use of our brand new Water Park. Your party will then enjoy food and drinks in a shaded area, or in our new Bali Hut* or Party Room* for the following 30 minutes.

*Please note there is additional charge of $50 to reserve this area for your party.

Fees and charges

The $30 party fee per child includes pool entry, activities with a dedicated host, water slide and splash zone and food and beverages (see attached flyer for included menu items). The Bali Style Hut and Party Room can be reserved for the duration of your party for an additional cost of $50.

We also offer an icecream cake for $25.00.

Birthday parties are held on Saturday and Sundays 12-1.30pm, please contact reception staff for enquiries outside these hours.

On the day of the party

Please arrange for your party guests to meet at reception 10 minutes prior to the time the party is due to commence. Your host or reception staff will then escort your group to your dedicated party area. If any guests are running late to the party, our staff will assist them to meet your party.

FAQs

What is the minimum age for a childrens party?

The minimum age is 5 years. Any guests under the age of 5 years must adhere by our Watch Around Water guidelines.

What games do the party hosts organise?

It is dependent on the age of the children. Younger children may play treasure hunt, what's the time mister wolf, noodle races, stuck in the mud, relay games and general play with a mix of pool toys. Older children will be encouraged to play team based activities like basketball, relay challenge games and others.

Can I bring my own food and drink in to the centre?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to allow for food to be bought in to the centre, including cakes. An icecream cake is available to purchase from our kiosk for an additional $25.

Can a younger sibling join in with the activity?

Any siblings will be included in the final party number, maintaining a maximum of 15 guests. Please ensure Watch Around Water guidelines are maintained.

How long can we stay for after the party activities have finished?

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to extend your party time any further than the allocated 1 and half hour timeframe.

Do we have to pay for the parents attending the party?

We can accommodate for up to 1 adult per child attending the party for no additional charge.

Some of our guests didn’t attend. What do I pay if less than the minimum children turn up?

The minimum cost is for 10 children. If you had more than the minimum, but not all of your guests attended, you only pay for those that have attended. If less than 10 attended you are still required to pay the minimum cost of 10 children.
