Above Ground Modular Pools

Melbourne Sterns Pool Dealer

Best value pool you can put in your backyard.

A swimming pool is to summer what an open fire is to winter! It’s what family together and makes life special. It’s where children come to splash and play, it’s where mums and dads relax and let the cares of the world just float away.

Here in Australia we’re lucky and the summers are hot and long. Unsurprisingly, the backyard pool has become part of our culture, a time-honoured tradition that we at Aquafirst Stern’s have been encouraging and supporting for over forty years.

We believe that every Aussie family is entitled to fun-filled days around their own pool.

And so we design and build a range of above-ground and in-ground pools that suit every size of yard and every size of budget.

For the price of a family holiday, we can help turn your backyard into a resort that you can visit every day of the week for free!
