Whilst fences are a legal requirement in most Australian states, and the laws vary from each local government area, it’s best to check with your council and state regulators around the requirements specific to your area. Alternatively, engage a local pool safety inspector to provide guidance. Below are just a few types of pool fencing options to consider when building your swimming pool.
