Bondi Icebergs Pool

The grande dame of the Sydney ocean pool world, Bondi Icebergs is the most famous pool in Australia and the star of countless social media posts. In the early 1800s people swam in this spot in a natural rock pool that was then replaced by the original Bondi Baths in the late 1800s. After various upgrades over the years, today’s visitors can dive into the 50-metre adults pool or slip into the shallower 25-metre children’s pool between looking out at those unforgettable Bondi Beach views.

As strange as it may seem today, in the late 1990s the future of the Bondi Icebergs was in doubt until John Singleton and Andrew Griffith hatched a $10 million plan to redevelop the club. The project saved the heritage aspects of the site while adding the restaurant, change rooms, gymnasium and sauna that we have today.
