Can confirm. Northcote also closed, but Banyule Council pools (Ivanhoe being the closest to us) still open as of this morning. Would be surprised if that remains the case for long.

Thanks was trying to work out if anything else was open. Is the 50m at Ivanhoe indoor at outdoor (I feel more comfortable with outdoor pools at the moment).

It's a 25m indoor only. For a 50m outdoor I think you'd need to go to Greensborough.

The Government advice on sport which went out this afternoon said that pools could remain open (under certain conditions); I doubt that those councils which have closed their pools will reopen them, but it might mean that those which are still open stay open (at least for now).

Boroondara pools closed :(

I've found 2 50m outdoor pools still open. Croydon Memorial Pool & Doncaster Aquarena - so I might be going on an adventure later if I'm awake enough!! I feel like the risk of swimming in a bath of chlorine in the open air is hopefully minimal.
