Bondi Baths

Jutting out from the shore of one of Australia's most famous beaches, the Bondi Baths have been an iconic landmark in Sydney for more than a century.

Featuring a 50-meter Olympic-sized pool and a smaller kid-friendly pool, the facility has been called home by the local Icebergs Swimming Club since 1929 and frequently hosts races and events.

Not a member of the Icebergs? No worries. The pool is open to non-member swimmers for a small admission fee.
