Of course it’s much better when the sun is shining but this pool is such a delightful place to visit with its fabulous harbour views. Swim if you’re game to during winter. Not for me but others love cold water. But do visit

The pool is actually in the sea, a board walk is built on top of the shark fence. Terraced sun trap. Clean toilets and showers on the top terrace next to a high quality cafe. Worth the walk. Only really busy at the weekends.

There are many harbor pools which offer better water conditions than Redleaf, but they aren't always netted. Two pools which should be kept open for longer are Nielsen Park and Parsley Bay. But for some reason Woollahra Council closes them a couple of months before...More

A unique scenery - water is a bit gross though. Good to just chill on the sand/grass - or on the bridge which is breezy and nice.
