    What a find - amazing view of the harbour, wonderful public pool, sun lounge area and building architectural details. The bathrooms are original but that just adds to the charm. A soul soothing, happy...  more »

    Sydney in late autumn and early winter is a top spot and there are few places better to enjoy it in a leisurely fashion then lounging by the pool and taking a dip in the (somewhat) heated waters of No...  more »

    Such an epic pool to swim in, still has the old late 1930's look, 50 metre pool kept at 25 degrees is salt water mixed with chloride. View of the bridge is absolutely stunning, don't think there is another Olympic size pool anywhere with a view like that. As a tourist a must visit if you like swimming, easy to walk the bridge after and visit the Rocks.

    Great outdoor 50m pool but it's showing its age - rather grungy, very basic facilities, pay for hot water.

    An Australian classic. Right on Sydney Harbour, great view of the Bridge, big saltwater swimming pool. Love they've kept the original (daggy) feel.

    Perhaps my inputs a tad dated... lol But Awwwwwwwwwwwwww :D The wonderful childhood memories of riding the old 'Red Rattlers' from the Eastern Suburbs' across the Sydney Harbour Bridge on our way this this awesome icon of ours. Great times & around 40 years later I can only look back & smile at it all. Even remember having been there the day that Shane Gould was seen there. :D

    The location is absolutely stunning, it's a cheap way to take in the harbour while relaxing in an historic facility! Unfortunately the pool isn't very easy to navigate, friendlier staff and better signage, lighting and maintenance would help. Also the water is extremely salty and has a high concentration of chlorine as well - really stung my eyes and mouth, would not recommend lap swimming without goggles.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
