Mitchell's swimming pool complex versus the Maranoa river

Now that the weather has warmed up, the use of Mitchell's updated swimming pool complex (which includes the Great Artesian Spa) has increased. This facility provides a pleasant and safe place for people to swim and socialise.

The Maranoa River, on the other hand, is not considered a safe swimming place for a number of reasons. Firstly, the water contains too many pollutants. Secondly, there are many hidden sandbars and snags -- also snakes. Nevertheless some children do swim near the bridge and emerge safe and sound.

The swimming pool is, however, a safer option and an important facility in a town where summer temperatures soar.
