You wanna pick which pool you dip in wisely, though. Copping a soggy bandaid on the face is not fun. Neither is contracting tinea from the floor from going barefoot. The following list of our fave Eastern seaboard pewls aren’t as impressive as the Champagne Papi‘s digs, but they go alright.
Prince Alfred Park Pool, Surry Hills.
North Sydney Olympic Pool, Milsons Point.
Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre, Ultimo.
COST: $7.20 for adults, $5.40 for concession.
OPENING HOURS: 6am – 10pm weekdays, 6am – 8pm weekends.
St Kilda Sea Baths, St Kilda.
There’s a heated 25m seawater pool, a hydrotherapy spa pool to relieve your sore muscles and a unisex aromatherapy steam room. It’s all on the St Kilda foreshore, so you can enjoy the view of the ocean and interesting passers-by.
