Step 2

Purchase Tickets

  • Make sure you’ve read and agree to the terms and conditions.
  • Start by choosing your day, then the timeslot you wish to attend (don’t forget, the sessions are 50 mins) then the ticket type (adult, youth (13 – 17) or child/toddler (12 and under). 
  • Once you’ve purchased your tickets, you will receive your tickets via email (however you will just need to give last name and swim time to collect your wristbands). 
  • On the day of your swim, head over to the Lake Gkula Bookings tent (next to the bakery) where you will receive your Lake Gkula wristbands for your swim session. Please put your wristbands on yourself and head to the Lake Gkula Entrance in time for the start of your swim.
  • Watch for the change of flags and ringing of the bell to show when your swim time is over.

Please note

To protect the health of our lake, we are selling tickets to the lake one day at a time.
Tickets for the next day will be on sale between 8-9pm the previous day.
For example: tickets for the 26th will go on sale at 8pm on the 25th and so on.
