I really don't know! Mine is 9, we aren't there yet, can't imagine it next year either.. Off the top of my head based on your specifics 15 seems comfortable to me, but then again if I have her a lift and she had a mobile phone then maybe 13? I have a feeling I'll be taxi mum when DD is older because I truly don't mind doing it, I can imagine dropping D d and her friends at the pool and having a coffee, getting her to buzz me when they're done. Lots of things to look forward to I guess!

And I should add if any of my kids wanted to move out at 17 I'm sure I'll go

My son is 14 and I would be ok with him going with his friend. He has his own mobile but I'd be worried it'd get stolen when they are swimming. However my dd is 12 and I think she's still too young to go without an adult. So for me...definitely 14+.

I really think it depends on the child.. My niece is 11 and not allowed, it's a pretty individual thing..

I'm sure I went there by my self (with friends)in late primary - 10-12? We live in a tiny (1200 people) town though and the pool was about 4 blocks away as well.
It depends in lots of things - maturity levels, safety of pool/ area you live, swimming ability, how the kids behave as a group etc etc.

High school, so 12-13.
From year 5 we walked to swim club after school x3 times a week and had an hour or so before sessions started..

There are different factors I take into account. My girls have been allowed alone as young as 8 to our local pool as we're a small country town and the attendants know us - and the girls were all fish!
However, I'm actually more concerned with the crowd. You can get some older kids who honestly are looking to cause mischief / pick a fight and they can get quite rough in the main pool. I'd rather be with my kids to defuse those situations.
