The pool here is very good indeed. It gets it water from the Great Artesian Basin, which means that it comes out of the ground at 55 degrees C. They have to cool it down before it gets into the pool!
It has been quite an education for this city boy who has never been west of the Great Divide in Queensland before. Out here, there are many difficulties including poor mobile phone and internet coverage and a lack of facilities that we in the cities take for granted. Some of my students have driven for many hours on dusty roads to get here. But they are committed and desperate to receive their training. I will appreciate my post swim (in the sea!) coffee shop breaks much more when I get back.
