Where is it?

The aquatic Centre is in Barnard street about 50-metres from the Oval Motel in Bendigo. It’s right next door from the Queen Elizabeth Oval.

Water slide (Hoobee Tubee)

The kids will love this...

The Hoobee Tubee water slide is a great way to entertain the kids during weekends and school holidays.

There is a 120cm height minimum to use the water slide. There is an attendant at the top of the slide who does enforce the restrictions. Make sure your kids are over 120cm before sending them up.

A bit of Local Trivia...

A local Bendigo child named the ‘Hoobee Toobee’ after winning a competition to name the new slide. The locals still refer to it as the ‘Big Bendi’ which was the name of the previous slide.

Slide opening hours

School Term: Monday to Friday 4pm-6.30pm

School Holidays and Weekends: 11am-12.30pm and 3.30pm-5.30pm

Tip: If you’re staying in summer there’s a good chance the slide will be open. To avoid disappointment ask us and we'll find out for you.
