This is a lovely place top go for a swim in Sydney with great views and close to the centre so can cool down after a day of sight seeing.

Under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and also next to Luna Park. Walking distance from Milsons Point station. What's not to like. A great place to take kids, or anyone else, for a swim. Take a picnic and enjoy yourself

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

What could be better than a dip in a well maintained pool almost directly under the Sydney Harbour Bridge? There you are swimming or even just sipping a coffee and checking the scene ... Looking up at that arc steel structure, feeling the tremor as...More
