This is a great place to visit if you are staying in the city to take a break from walking/sight seeing. It makes for a cheap couple of hours. The wave machine during school holidays was a hit with my kids and the lazy river ensured we could play hide and seek. There was a spa & a lap pool too. The change rooms are basic - but the ladies change room did have hair dryers - a nice touch.

The Cook and Phillip Park behind the Aquatic and Leisure Centre is attractive looking and busy on a sunny day: green lawns, trees, paths, and lots of people exercising. There are open air areas in which trainers run classes, and there are free range runners. I cut through the park from William Street, walking upslope, passing the Catholic church and emerging on College Street. It's a bit of parkland worth knowing about as an alternative to Hyde Park and the Domain if you want to sit or stroll outdoors after visiting the church or the Australian Museum.

I was taken to this pool by a person who's a visual artist and a swimmer. She showed me the murals painted by Sydney artist Wendy Sharpe. There are eight big murals along the western wall above the main pool. They were installed in 1999 and they depict highlights in the swimming and performing life of champion swimmer Annette Kellerman (1886-1975).

After walking approximately 70 km around Sydney. This was a treasure to just relax in the steam room and Sauna after a great swim. The temperature ranges from 27 to 32 degrees in each pool depending on the pool.

Good for relaxing and unwinding. It also includes a full gym.

It is rare to find 50m indoor lap pool & you can find one here! The inside is not modern & a bit dark. $7.40 for adult as of July 2016. I find North Sydney swimming pool a lot better yet at same price with better view & modern facilities.
