The Mega Swim School was established by Meg Amauchi in Bondi in 1998. Throughout its reign in Bondi the Mega Swim School won numerous nominations and awards for outstanding achievements in the swim and education industries. After the huge success of Mega Swim School in Bondi, Meg decided to return home to Byron Bay to be near family and friends.
In the spring of 2011 Meg Amauchi opened the doors to the prestigious Mega Swim School, in the Byron Bay hinterlands. Her beautiful indoor heated salt water pool, with views across the hill tops to Lennox Head was now the place for Meg to share her experience, expertise and innovative approach to swimming, with the families of the Northern Rivers. With Meg’s unique teaching style combining knowledge, education and a strong safety theme, the Mega Swim School has become known for outstanding results and high quality service.
