Bayside Aquatics offers swimming programs at every level for every age. Classes available Monday through to Saturday.

The Facility


At Bayside Aquatics, we cater for all levels of swimmers from toddlers to elite athletes, from social groups to school groups, pre-school to adults, group lessons, or private lessons. With highly experienced instructors, qualified through AUSTSWIM and Swim Australia, and our low student to instructor ratios, we are able to provide a personalised level of instruction in a safe, intensive learning environment. 

Bayside Aquatics features a full eight-lane, 25 metre pool with seating for 300 spectators, making it the ideal location for lessons or school programs. We are ideally located near both Mentone and Parkdale train stations, on the Mentone Grammar School campus. 

Our philosophy is to help children to be confident in the water, to build their skills through positive encouragement, to challenge them, and help them be the best swimmer they can in a fun and nurturing environment.


For our youngest swimmers, Toddler and Me lessons are the first step to introducing young children to the aquatic environment. There are three levels of classes which help children progress and build their confidence with water familiarisation and safety awareness in and around the water.

From three years old, these lessons are designed to develop water confidence and introduce children to the fundamentals of swimming, through water safety skills and stroke technique development.

I have had my children swimming at Bayside Aquatics for over 5 years and the kids love it! The stroke development and holiday program, in particular, are fantastic.
