This excellent pool is conveniently located right in the centre of Sydney. The swimming lanes are twice the length of "normal" swimming lanes in Europe and are amazing! I have so far visited on a Sunday evening around 6pm and a Tuesday morning at 7.30am...More

Decent lap pool, reasonable sized wave pool for the kids, small outdoor area for unwinding and a mid sized hydrotherapy pool open to the public. Coupled with very very reasonable entry price. Recommend.

The pool is located next to the Australian Museum near the cathedral. There is a 50m lap pool and a smaller kids' pool. I enjoyed a swim in the slow lane on a hot day after work. It was getting busy as I left just...More

reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
