What a find - amazing view of the harbour, wonderful public pool, sun lounge area and building architectural details. The bathrooms are original but that just adds to the charm. A soul soothing, happy afternoon in the sun. There's a kiosk there selling pies, chips,...More

Great pools, with the free entry we got from Luna Park this summer. Nice way to end the day. Don't forget to get tokens for hot water for the showers when you are done! A lady was kind enough to give us one of hers...More

So, I love swimming, but I have never written a review about a pool. THIS pool is worth writing about. Firstly, the pool itself is great. Olympic size and depth and plenty of lanes for all swimmers - fast, slow, freestyle, training and a lane...More

Great facilities but there is strong chlorine so if you are doing laps you definitely need goggles which you can buy at the shop. Amazing views and very handy to the city. Otherwise it is a 50 metre pool where you can do some exercise...More

Great views from the area being next to Luna Park. It has multiple pool options, including 25m indoor or 50m outdoor each catering for lap swimming. Relatively salty swim in the 50m outdoor. What I didn't like was needing a token for a shower -...More

Spent a few hours here on a sunny summer afternoon and loved it. We'd been to Luna Park in the morning and came over for a swim to cool off and have a rest. Best bits - salt water pool - very very salt water...More

Because they pump water from the harbour I would suggest the same but not totally sure. I went to the beach yesterday and the water is still pretty warm at 21 degrees and it will slowly go down so it should be at least 20 in... More
