Mount Isa Mines Pool MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The Mount Isa Mines Pool Memorial is dedicated to employees of Mount Isa Mines and citizens of Mount Isa who gave their lives in defence of their country. The memorial sits in front of the Splashez Aquatic Centre which was previously known as the Mount Isa Memorial Pool. The Pool was originally dedicated in memory of the fallen of World War Two.

Retail stores in Mount Isa have sold hundreds of bathing suits in expectation of the opening the the luxury swimming pool. The pool, on the banks of the Leichhardt River is of Olympic standard size, floodlit from under the water and surrounded by newly planted lawns. It is hoped the pool will be open before Christmas. Mount Isa Mines have dedicated the pool as a memorial to the men who died in the Second World War.
