“New Years Eve 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

This is the perfect venue to watch the 9pm fireworks.
This is a ticketed event that runs from 6pm-9pm.
Plenty of things for the kids to do, apart from swimming in the pools.
A great night for young families.

“Great pool and location and views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

It's obviously a quality Olympic type and size pool - very popular with early morning swimmers - perhaps it's because of the sensible free parking for a reasonable time. Location close to transport (ferry and trains) is great and views of the harbour are wonderful. Handy also to local cafes.

“It's a great pool they have gym and sauna too.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

I have been member of this pool for over 4 years. It's good. There are two pools. One 50 mtr and salt water open pool and other one is 25 mtr and chlorinated pool. They are both heated. They also have a good gym there called 'Lane 9'. It's not very big but because of low number of membership is quite free to use - mostly during the day time.

“What a view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

We went to the pool just because of the view when we were in Sydney for a couple of days, rather than for a serious swim.
You did feel like you were in a piece of history as during the walk from the reception to the outdoor pool you can read about the records etc set in the pool during the Olympics.
The view is spectacular- it's a really unique experience for that reason. You are literally under the bridge.
We only went to the 50m outdoor pool which was around $7. Definitely worth it! It's a saltwater pool which we hadn't realised and was really well organised, having different lanes for different abilities.
Just remember you have to pay for the showers.
A definite must while in Sydney!!
