Let’s get swimming.

Oh hey! Thanks for popping in. We’re Fish N Flips — a totally fresh swim school. We like to think swimming’s for everyone. Which is why we welcome all families with open flippers.

Our swimming lessons start for kids as young as 3 months old. And we put play at the heart of every class — because we find that it’s the best way to learn. The best way to explore Fish N Flips? Well, by dipping in of course!

The tiniest fish (3–5 months) can start with our 8-week FREE Baby Bonding course. If your little fish is older, then it depends more on their age or ability. Ready to discover more?

Now it’s time to increase our focus on independent swimming. From paddling and kicking to big arms and bubbles, your little fish will zoom ahead as they discover their love for the water!

Watch your little fish make waves as they discover freestyle, backstroke and breaststroke kicks and strokes — and learn even more fun safety skills!

I’d like to sign up! What do I do now?

Self Assess your little fish today to determine their appropriate level in our program based on their skills & experience. Once you have self assessed our team will be in contact to book you in for a trial class. During your trial we will give you a tour of the venue, then we’ll jump in the water to blow some bubbles, have some fun and make sure you are in the right level for you! If your little fish is under 3 years old – come prepared to get wet! At this age an accompanying adult will be jumping in too. Little fish should wear swimmers but caps & goggles are optional.
