Excellent pool, Olympic size, well located to transport, ferries, trains nearby and wonderful views of the harbour while swimming - good all year round pool. Parking is cheaper if you get there early.

I regularly come to North Sydney pool and can't imagine swimming at any other pool in Sydney. Spectacular views anytime of the day and good additional facilities. Nice to be able to get excellent coffee and snacks at the cafe and a hot shower after your swim. With both an indoor and outdoor pool it really is a year round... More

First off you do not need to pay to get in if you want to take photos or have a look around. If it had not been a cold day, I would have paid to take a swim. The view is amazing! You can also lounge in the chairs and sunbath after taking a dip. They also have food and... More

Amazing location for a pool. Showcases the best of Sydney with views and the Harbour bridge easily accessible. It deserves better maintenance and the entrance fee should include lockers and showers, which it unfortunately doesn't.

Olympic Pool lies under the northern end of Sydney Harbour Bridge... must be one of the most beautifully sited public swimming pools anywhere. Get a ferry to Milsons Point have a swim and then a walk a coffee or meal at nearby Ripples Cafe. If you're a swimmer this is a great spot to immerse yourself in Sydney...

Had a great swim indoor pool and follow by the hot tub which was very relaxing. Will definitely swim outside when it's summer and enjoy the harbor bridge view.

We were just visiting but they let us come in and walk around and we hung out for a while just observing. I would take up swimming to be able to use this pool. It is one of literally hundreds of examples of Sydney providing great public facilities for her citizens

OK I'll admit it I swam my first race here in the '60's and I continue to swim here to this day summer and winter. If you are a traveller with an interest in swimming you must visit the venue where and amazing 86 world records were set in years gone by. It's a short train or ferry trip from... More

As a regular, I can't get enough of this place. My children also attend swimming lessons here. The staff are friendly and helpful. There are hot showers and heated pool for all year round swimming. I love to visit in the evening to take in the harbour views.

If you want to train in a proper 50mtr pool but also love swimming as a sport including all history then this is the best spot in Sydney. Very affordable and reasonable. Lockers cost money. Showers cost money, of course to be wise on how you spend your water. One thing: DONT FORGET YOUR GOGGLES or buy them there!!!! You... More
