Gympie ARC has it all - even good coffee

BRAVO, GYMPIE Aquatic Recreation Centre

I HAD the pleasure of going to the free day for the opening of the Gympie ARC on Saturday.

What the ARC could mean for our talented swimmers

I live near the centre and the car park was full all day with every available spot taken.

The line for the water slides, easily the most popular feature of the ARC so far.

In spite of this, the pools were not overcrowded and everything ran smoothly.

I went to the canteen to purchase a coffee and as expected, there was a bit of a wait but not too long.

I was surprised with the pricing, very reasonable, but what impressed me most was I ordered an extra hot coffee and although it was busy, I received exactly what I ordered, an extra hot coffee.
