Riverway offers so much for the visitor. A pathway along the beautiful Ross River - go as far as the Ross Dam or Lake Ross if you're energetic. The buildings provide an art gallery, a theatre, and a café overlooking a free swimming pool. Barbecues are available for use by the public free of charge and are well used.

This is a lovely well kept parkland. Plenty of easy walking paths though the venue and along the riverbank, barbeque facilities, choice of two lagoons to swim with lifesavers on site and great day for the whole family. Overlooks the river, watch the water skiers along the river and see plenty of small turtles and fish. Great fun day for... More

For a free day out this is a perfect setting. Well maintained, and a great place for a picnic. Has security and life savers and massive pools. Not bad at all. Kids will love it.

Excellent community venue for so many activities. Early morning lap swimmers, give way to families during the day. Overlooks the river with water skiing and the parklands which are excellent.

Lovely swimming pool amongst native trees and river. Theres a small Art Gallery and depending on whats exhibited, as to how long one spends there. Most people visit in Summer for the pool and although there is a restaurant there, its very overpriced and not very big. There is no kiosk to buy snacks and drinks, although there appears to... More

Riverway provides something for everyone - lots of pool options for all ages and swimming abilities. BBQ facilities, playgrounds (including a sensory playground too), all set on the beautiful Ross River.

By the river with lots to do for the kids. Very well planned. Nice areas for parents to relax and the swim areas were safe and clean.

These free public pools are built like a luxury resort and very popular with the locals and visitors. What a great place to spend a hot day with BBQ's and views over the Ross River. The infinity pool is just lovely and the kiddies pool with polished granite boulder for decoration make it intriguing. Adventure playgrounds are well thought out... More
