This pool is in the most beautiful location, and the pool is huge and well maintained, even with lanes marked. The wide ramp with railings into the pool makes this pool accessible to all.

An excellent experience, I have been to the pool many times. Making it a must stop on runs along the foreshore, it has recently been restored and improved, paths and seating. If visiting Newcastle you must come and enjoy the area, great food and coffee...More

Amazing views from Merewether Baths. 2 pools, one deeper and one kiddie pool with sandy bottom. With good amenities and cafes close by, this is place to go for a swim in Newcastle!
