Wylie’s Baths

After running the Bronte Baths, champion long-distance and underwater swimmer Henry Alexander ‘Harry’ Wylie established Wylie’s Baths in 1907, which became one of the first mixed-gender bathing pools in Australia. While women were not usually allowed to swim with men in the early 1900s, this became a space where Australia’s first female Olympians Fanny Durack and Harry’s daughter Mina Wylie could train for the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. Where they did Australia proud. The first time women were allowed to swim in an Olympic Games, Fanny brought home the gold in the 100-metre freestyle with Mina snatching the silver.
