On a sunny winters day in Sydney, what do you do? Well, a swim in the Olympic Pool in North Sydney is perfect. A scenic walk down from the train station, and into the pool where Dawn Fraser set her world records over 50 years...More

With its Harbourside location this is probably the best public swimming pool in Sydney. Easily reached by train, bus or ferry. With ample seating, sun lounges, and a small shop. There are two pools to choose from plus a gym for an extra charge. The...More

The North Sydney Olympic Pool is easily accessed via the Milton Point train station, or by walking across the Harbour Bridge. (Walk straight down from the train station and the entrance will be on your right. Don't turn right on Paul like Google Maps says...More

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

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
