We spent a lovely evening here with the family for New Years eve. It is the best setting for the childrens fireworks at 9pm. Lots of activities. We went with our own food but with it being council run cafe prices aren't much anyway.
Value for money for a New Years eve is great at such a small price for one of the best seats in Sydney!

As everyone says, amazing views so close to the harbour and bridge. It is though a full Olympic size pool and convenient for most forms of transport; rail, ferry or bus.
Parking gets expensive after 8.30am so try to get here early.

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 ago. Salt water pool, with the most amazing backdrop of Sydney Harbour to the east, and Luna Park to the west. A 50m pool, swim in lanes, with sun deck. Fantastic

What an amazing place to swim...rught by the harbour and Harbour bright, can't beat it. We previously visited with iur young children and overseas visits and many find memories. Recently returned for a swim and a little disappointed to see in upgrades with the change rooms and showers...still paying for some warm water. Seems all the money has gone into the new section, indoor pool. The condition of the Olympic pool was not great also, cloudy and over treated with slimy floor and walls. Time for a revamp of outdoor pool and change rooms. It is not cheap to visit and tume that money is spent on these improvements...please don't allow this amazing place to be run down further. A major plus, if you park across the road at meters for uo to 2 hours, there is a refund box for parking if under 2 hours near enterance/exist...ask staff if unsure.

There is an amazing view of Sydney Harbour, but that's it. The pools are extremely crowded on the normal areas during weekends. If you don't want to lap swim you have to stay on those crowded areas where there's barely space. As the view is amazing I would recommend going to the area and have a walk around Luna Park. I wouldn't go again to the pool.

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 large change rooms have lockers and warm showers operated with a token. Purchase these at the entrance, Deposit returned when the locker key is returned, unlike the more expensive pools in the City. During the Summer the pool stays open until after sunset. Go during the week, to avoid the crowds. Watch the boats and ships on Sydney Harbour while relaxing by the pool.

So, I love swimming, but I have never written a review about a pool.
THIS pool is worth writing about.

Firstly, the pool itself is great. Olympic size and depth and plenty of lanes for all swimmers - fast, slow, freestyle, training and a lane for pottering about in.
The salt water may not be everyone's preference but the buoyancy was a bit different and very pleasant.

When swimming under water, you can hear the train vibrations from the bridge above, making you feel quite like a harbour swimming creature.

The view, though! The views are utterly fabulous. Swimming and viewing some of the country's most iconic landmarks is a real treat. There is also a lounge deck where you are in an oasis at the heart of the city. An long salty swim followed by a sun lounger and an ice-lolly is a perfect combination.

Changing areas are large, lockers are available.

I wish we could have come a few times, but sadly only once! Please go for me!!!

Great views from the area being next to Luna Park.
It has multiple pool options, including 25m indoor or 50m outdoor each catering for lap swimming.
Relatively salty swim in the 50m outdoor.

What I didn't like was needing a token for a shower - not having been mentioned (you need to buy it on your way in) when I entered. Seriously? Charge more and save the trouble.

As a semi local, I don't use any of the locker rooms but the pool quality is excellent and there is a great cafe too. Entrance is only $7.50 which is great value. There is also a great sun deck for lounging too!
