Swimming pools

  • Tepid Baths and Parnell Baths are two Auckland City facilities that have casual rates and gym too. When I called to check, I as informed they will allow non auckland city residents to use the pools for swimming at the casual rates. So this means you don't have to be a member.
  • Tepid Baths


  • University of Auckland Recreation centre has casual workout rate for non students at $20 a day. Page with info
    • You MUST retain your receipt so you can show it at the reception/entry if you wish to go in again that same day.
    • Casual rate also includes the group fitness classes.
    • Operating Hrs
    • Group fitness timetable for 5 Jan - 2 March 2015 or pdf file (1.9Mb)
    • There is a climbing wall BUT due to Health & Safety rules, casual club members can only go up to a certain height (boulders was the term used). Given the impression that only members of the Rock & Alpine Club may be able to use the higher levels.
  • Both Tepid + Parnell Baths have a gym rate. See Swimming section above for links to website
    • Tepid Baths has a gym. $20.70 per day is the casual rate for pool + gym
    • Parnell Baths gym + swim casual rate is $15 for an adult.
