  • The North Sydney Olympic Pool is easily accessed via the Milton Point train station, or by walking across the Harbour Bridge. (Walk straight down from the train station and the entrance will be on you...  more »
  • The 50 m pool is sea water. There are corridors for swimming according to his level and even a "recreational" corridor. It has foot in much of this pool. The staff at the entrance is very nice even for those who don't handle English from a distance... It is an older facility but neat. The views from the pool are really like in the photos, which makes it a real tourist attraction. It is easily reached by bus or by train with the OPAL card which is recommended when visiting Sydney. For those who come by car, ability to pair the rate "parking and entrance".

  • Staff rude. Girl at front couldn’t even crack a smile. Sorry maybe I’m old fashioned but I believe customer service should start with a smile!!!! Cafe seems outdated, we are about to enter the year 2018... please rethink your options for food... not sustainable. Didn’t eat anything because nothing there I would eat. Coffee was not bad. Some of the chairs on the top deck are broken. Maybe you should fix? Purchase some updated chairs? Charging $8 for an adult to visit, yet chairs are broken or don’t work as expected. Little kids were allowed to run around like crazy on the top deck as well? Where is the respect? I see that parents are responsible for their kids, but the staff could have also ask them to stop. Personally, can’t see how I would spend another dollar going into that pool when we live in a city with beaches.. but I am glad I went and experienced it (as I live so close by), but I think one experience is enough for me!
  • Staff not helpful and not friendly. In sauna, people constantly go in and out, so it doesn't have a chance to heat up properly. And it smells chlorine, not sauna. You have to pay extra for the locker and even for hot water in the shower. The latter is just insane! Come on! In Wollongong, they have hot water in a FREE public pool! And this pool charges even more than most of the other pools! So they don't have hot water, but you know what they DO have? A button operated door. Which you can open from both sides. Using two different buttons. That absolute necsssity they do have. Seriously, I don't understand how the majority of other pools go without such essential thing. But probably all the extra posh patrons that seem to be the majority here are just too good for old-fashioned hand operated doors.
  • Easy to reach by train,bus,ferry or private vehicle.Located beside Luna Park,next to Sydney Harbour Bridge and Milsons Point ferry wharf.Spectacular scenery of the harbour bridge.Entrance fees are a little bit expensive.Sufficient facilities and a comfortable pool to swim in.The pool water is quite salty though.Worth visiting if you love swimming.
  • Not many public pools have such a cool view. It's easy to do another length of backstroke when you're looking up at Sydney Harbour bridge in the sun. A large half salt / fresh water pool & small heated upstairs freshwater pool with jacuzzi and sauna. Non-members welcome worth a visit if you're a tourist that loves a swim.
  • Great view. Didn't feel welcomed by the reception girl. The rest staff are respectful.
