While pool maintenance at the Eureka Aquatic Center continues to plague City of Ballarat, we have compiled a list of the best fresh water spots to cool off this summer. 

Ballarat and surrounds have a wealth of natural waterways and lakes to cool off in this summer, from the more popular lakes to the secret swimming holes, there is a fresh water option for all swimming levels. 

After an unfortunate bloom of blue green algae in a few of the waterways, the water has been deemed safe by local councils. 

The council will be conducting more tests next week to make sure the algae has cleared completely for the summer season.

With so many beautiful lakes around, it’s worth taking advantage of the natural swimming holes the region has to offer. 

Check out our map below to plan your summer getaways:
