Whilst walking in the botanical gardens, which are gorgeous, a lady recommended this pool. Thank you! Pool was lovely. Kids loved it so much our last two mornings in Sydney were spent here. Lunch at the pool cafe was lovely too.

Worth a visit for the cafe alone and you don't have to get wet. Lovely views over to Wooloomooloo, and sombrero hats are provided if you opt for a seat in the sun.

Stopped by this pool on a hot day after seeing the botanical gardens and the art museum. So fantastic! You can rent a locker (it's digital, you choose a PIN) and lounge on the deck. Limited amount of lounge chairs, so you'll have to just...More

This has to be a top location for a swim to cool one down during a hot Sydney day. It's location so close to the Botanical gardens and the gallery was a welcome respite from doing touristy things in Sydney. We stayed for lunch and...More

Repeat visit to perhaps Sydney’s top swimming spot. Once again it could only but impress. Began with banana bread and a flat white overlooking the beautiful 50 metre salt water pool. Dried off in the shaded area to one side of the pool. Go visit!

I swim here a few times a week during my lunch break. It's a really nice pool - salt water - and the view on a nice day is spectacular. Lots of swimmers (good and bad), sunbakers and lifeguards.

Plenty. Street has many car spots - all metered requiring fees. Can be busy so depending on when you arrive, might need to be patient.
