In the Swim: A History of Bendigo’s Swimming Pools Exhibition

In the Swim

About the Exhibition

From the baths in Bath Lane to an Olympics inspired full length pool, Bendigo’s swimming pools have provided relief from our long hot summers and created generations of swimmers and champions. Using items from our collections Bendigo Historical Society, Bendigo Library and Bendigo Regional Archives Centre tell the story of our community’s connection to swimming pools through the decades.

View the exhibition until Saturday 10 March 2018 in the upstairs display cases at Bendigo Library.

Stories from the Pool Event

Everyone has a story of long summer days spent at the local pool! We invite you to tell us yours in words or pictures throughout December and January, and then join us for this special story-sharing event for all ages.
