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 your right. Don't turn right on Paul like Google Maps says...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

What a find - amazing view of the harbour, wonderful public pool, sun lounge area and building architectural details. The bathrooms are original but that just adds to the charm. A soul soothing, happy afternoon in the sun. There's a kiosk there selling pies, chips,...More
