Spectacular Location

The North Sydney Pool was built on the old Dorman and Long site where much of the construction work for the Sydney Harbour Bridge had been carried out.

When it was opened in 1936, it was hailed as the 'Wonder pool of Australasia' because of the high standard of its facilities and the sophistication of its modern filtration system - at that time one of the most advanced in the world. 

The pool is unique because of its harbourside location between the Bridge and Luna Park, the strong art deco styling and decorative plasterwork of its architecture, and its place in Australia's sporting history.

In all, 86 world records have been set at the pool by such swimming greats as, for example, John and Ilsa Konrads, Lorraine Crapp, Frank O'Neill, Judy Joy Davies, John Devitt, Shane Gould and Michelle Ford
