Unfortunately we don't have our swimming pool operational this season. We are undergoing extensive renovations for this. However you can use the Coober Pedy School pool which is lovely, large & great for families with a paddling pool or for laps. Ask reception for the hours of operation.
In the past we have had people take extremely long showers or leave showers running, so it's mainly for the time the 20c coin gives which is two minutes, you can put 2-3 coins in at a time. You aren't actually paying for the shower as such. Our water is from the artisan basin 25km from town - it is then desalinated in town so this also increases the costs we pay for water as a business.
