Port Macquarie does not yet have an ocean pool. Despite many decades of discussion about construction of an ocean pool, the pool remains a phantom.
The Port Macquarie-Hastings Council is paying close attention to developments regarding the
proposed ocean pool at Ballina.
The survey run by Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to help it develop a Disability Inclusion Action Plan prompted Kathryn Butler to send a letter to a local newspaper explaining how an ocean pool could benefit people with disabilities. Her letter expanded on one facet of the 15-point list of benefits of an ocean pool posted on the Ocean Pool for Port Macquarie’s Facebook page early in November 2016.
To highlight the appeal of ocean pools, Ocean Pool for Port Macquarie has been posting images of existing ocean pools on its Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pmqtidalpool.com.au/) .
