155 Southern Cross Circuit‚ Springfield

To cool off during a long hot Ipswich summer, you can’t go past Orion Lagoon at Springfield, just a 30-minute drive from Brisbane Central Business District. Situated within Orion Springfield Central and the newest stage of the huge Robelle Domain parklands, Orion Lagoon has a vast expanse of shallow pools and water features.

The interconnected pools cater for all age groups, from the toddler-friendly 0.3 metres up to 1.5 metres for more proficient swimmers. Some are gently graded from the edge to give a beach-like effect, with one section offering aquativity features such as squirting spouts and stepping-stones. Lifeguards are on duty from 8am to 4pm from 1 April to 31 August and 5am to 9pm from 1 September to 31 March. Children under 13 must be actively supervised by persons 18 years or older at all times.

Shade is provided by colourful sails and some trees over the grassed areas, while there’s also a covered barbecue pavilion with picnic tables. Bring your own picnic or take advantage of the Lagoon Café and other nearby eating places. There are onsite lockers, and flotation devices, swimwear and pool accessories are for sale.
