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 for pottering about in. The salt water may not be everyone's preference but the buoyancy...

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 a train goes by or looking up and trying to count the number of groups... More

Recently returned for a swim and a little disappointed to see in upgrades with the change rooms and showers...still paying for some warm water. Seems all the money has gone into... 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 and relax with a cappuccino or fresh juice from the shop.

Couldn't find an email to write to the pool but we went there yesterday and it was disgusting. The water was filthy, the floor and tiles were slimey & there was rubbish in the pool. The outside area was also slimey and slippery (& very dangerous).You get charged extra $$$$ for taking a shower or using the spa pool (god... 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 - not having been mentioned (you need to buy it on your way in) when I... 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 pool, so very buoyant. 3.9m deep end; close views of the harbour bridge. Not so... More

Excellent pool, Olympic size, well located to transport, ferries, trains nearby and wonderful views of the harbour while swimming - good all year round pool. Parking is cheaper if you get there early.

I regularly come to North Sydney pool and can't imagine swimming at any other pool in Sydney. Spectacular views anytime of the day and good additional facilities. Nice to be able to get excellent coffee and snacks at the cafe and a hot shower after your swim. With both an indoor and outdoor pool it really is a year round... More

First off you do not need to pay to get in if you want to take photos or have a look around. If it had not been a cold day, I would have paid to take a swim. The view is amazing! You can also lounge in the chairs and sunbath after taking a dip. They also have food and... More
