Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa Pool and Leisure Centre

About the centre

At Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa Pool and Leisure Centre you'll find a huge pool complex and much more! It's truly a multi-facility, with a fitness centre, stadium, eight pools, bookable spaces and a love of its community to boot.

Have fun, get active, be social or even just relax — the spa and saunas are perfect for relaxing weary muscles!

The Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa team are committed to — and inspired about — helping our community and members get active their way. Send us your enquiries via the contact us form or, even better, come and visit us and let us show you around our fantastic facility.

Special things about our pools

  • Swimming in the pools at Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa is free for all ages.
  • We have a unique, dedicated bombing pool which is one of five outdoor pools that are open all summer. Oh, and a hydroslide!
  • Our splash pad is for all ages, and the swimwear requirement is relaxed as it's not an actual pool.
  • To keep you sun safe we have rash tops for hire. Sizes go up to 9XL, so swimwear is not a barrier!
  • For the upcoming summer season (but only through booking) we'll have a new electrical barbecue area with shade and tables. Can't book? Don't worry, you can still picnic on the grass by the pools.

Please note that there is no disabled access to the indoor splash pool nor the outdoor pools.

Learn to Swim

Learn to Swim is resuming on 31 August 2020 with some changes. You can read about the changes here.

Jump in at Learn to Swim Moana-Nui-a-Kiwa!

We offer:

  • small class sizes
  • free swimming before and after lessons
  • plenty of free parking
  • discounts for families.

We can instruct swimmers of any age and ability, from 6-month-old babies to adults.

Why choose our Learn to Swim classes?

  • We really care about teaching water safety. All our students are taught key water safety skills first, then progress to mastering swimming skills.
  • All our instructors hold a New Zealand Certification in Aquatics and are AUSTSWIM qualified.
  • As a community facility, we are more affordable than many private providers - and we never compromise on quality.

Our facility accommodates family members of all ages. We have a shallower, warmer learn to swim pool and a bigger pool for deep water confidence and greater distance.

Be in the pool with your baby, or do your own laps or get in a quick workout while your school-aged child takes a class!

Term classes

Which class is right for me or my child?

We offer free assessments to determine yours or your child’s level.

Book a free assessment

School holiday learn to swim courses

Holiday swim courses run over five consecutive half days (four if there is a public holiday) from Monday to Friday. Courses may be in the morning or the afternoon. We take enrolments for complete courses only.

If your child is a bit stuck on an element of their swimming, by coming every day for five days they'll normally crack it. Conquer that learning to breathe, breaststroke, or butterfly!

How to book a school holiday course

Contact us using the details on this page, or talk to the Learn to Swim team at the centre. A free assessment may be required to determine your child's level.

Swimming lessons and water safety for schools

We’re experienced and skilled at working with schools, tailoring programmes to schools’ needs and the age and stage of their students:

  • swimming lessons
  • lifejacket usage
  • deep water confidence
  • boating experiences.

Lessons can take place in our facilities, or our instructors can come to you if your school has its own pool.

Auckland Council Pools and Leisure is a partner in the Greater Auckland Aquatic Action Plan (GAAAP) programme of funded school swimming lessons.
