2020/2021 Customer Survey 

The ACT Government and the Manuka Pool are
continually looking to improve services and would
greatly appreciate your time to complete the survey.

COVID update


From Saturday 20 February 2021, the ACT will begin operating under a new set of COVID-normal restrictions. It is likely that these restrictions will remain unchanged for the next few months, subject to the COVID-19 situation remaining stable.

Patrons entering the Manuka Swimming Pool must check in by using the Check-in CBR app. If you haven’t already, please download the app to assist with a seamless entry. 

Staff will be able to assist patrons who don’t have access to the Check-in CBR app.

Research Wellbeing Survey

You are invited to take part in this online survey that aims to measure the social and wellbeing outcomes of users and non-users of a range of sport, leisure, and community activities across the Australia population.
The Manuka Swimming Pool is always looking for ways to review our services so we can maximise the experience and well-being of our members and users.
Your feedback helps us decide what improvements we could make to achieve better outcomes. Please take a few minutes to fill out the survey by clicking on the link provided below.  The survey should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
Thank you for your help!
