The wave pool at Melton Waves is a great way to cool off on a hot day, without having to go home covered in sand or sunburnt, although because it is indoors you can enjoy it all year round. The waves are not continuous, but start up slowly every so often, then keep getting bigger until the whole pool is filled with rolling waves. There is a warning that sounds when they are starting, so that if you have very small children or don’t want to be in the waves, you can get out of the pool until they’re finished. The pool complex has a number of different indoor pools for all ages and abilities, plus an outdoor one as well, and a kiosk and gym. You can even host a child’s birthday party at the pool. It is an easy drive to Melton via the Calder Freeway to the Melton Highway exit.
