North Sydney Pool



Not sure if this classifies as an aquatic centre, but Bondi Icebergs




Haha was trying to find out if there were any old bath houses in Sydney like the Melbourne one. The google results were all gay club related...

North Sydney's Olympic Pool is one of the best positioned in Australia. In its hey day it was where the major swim meets did take place in Sydney.

Photos of the old Adelaide City Baths, before it was demolished in 1969 and replaced by the Adelaide Festival Centre.

Spring Hill Baths in Brisbane is quite similar inside to Adelaide's old baths.

It has served the people of Brisbane since 1886.
