The John Wallace Swim School has been a family owned business on the Sunshine Coast and delivering swimming lessons for over 40 years.

John Wallace started the swim school while head coach of Caloundra Swimming Club (now known as Pelican Waters Caloundra Swimming Club) and also took over as lessee of Caloundra Aquatic Centre with his wife Vicki. John’s two daughters, Kristy and Tessa, would live and breathe swimming 24/7 while growing up in and around the centre for 20 years. 

With John and Vicki now respectfully retired, Kristy has taken over the reigns of the family business and continues to keep the JWSS legacy strong in the newly developed and family friendly community of Aura, in Baringa.

Our Baringa centre includes a heated 18mt x 10mt Indoor Pool, specifically designed for Learn to Swim and our water quality is one of the best on the coast! Not only is our system Environmentally friendly, but our saltwater system will also feel like you are swimming in fresh water and won’t leave you smelling like an indoor chlorinated pool all day!
 Although this is not a public pool, we are catering to all areas of the public by providing Adult Learn to Swim Classes, Private lessons, Fitness Classes and more!
