Came here in the evening for my friends wedding after party. It's a great location with water views. The bar tender and wait staff were good.

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.

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!

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