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...More

This is a lovely place top go for a swim in Sydney with great views and close to the centre so can cool down after a day of sight seeing.

Under the Sydney Harbour Bridge, and also next to Luna Park. Walking distance from Milsons Point station. What's not to like. A great place to take kids, or anyone else, for a swim. Take a picnic and enjoy yourself

Because they pump water from the harbour I would suggest the same but not totally sure. I went to the beach yesterday and the water is still pretty warm at 21 degrees and it will slowly go down so it should be at least 20 in... More
