“Our People, Our Lifestyle, Our Water”


Original owner Peter Brasher, had many years of experience teaching and coaching in Queensland. Travelling a lot to the NT, he noticed a lack of quality learn to swim facilities and programs in Darwin. He believed that there was a good business opportunity for him in the NT and purchased the original land in 1998 and started the development not long after.


The idea was to build an East Coast style facility in the tropics - indoor, temperature controlled learn to swim centre that would be operational 12 months of the year. In 2003 Goldfishbowl Swim School in Palmerston was opened for business.


In 2022 Royal Life Saving NT purchased the business, continuing Peter's legacy and providing learn to swim and water safety education to the community.
