Merewether Baths - Review
Imagine an ocean transformed into a swimming pool for you to splash about it and then stroll out onto the beach for a family picnic or a hot sizzling barbeque. Presenting the visitors with a perfect family outing, the ocean baths has two pools, one for the adults and one for children. The Merewether Baths are especially flocked during the summer season, making the perfect sunny day retreat…

The dog got brushed and the excess fur blew into the ocean from a great height. I hope the whales don't mind. I expect the cliff birds will appreciate a bit of comfort.
As long as you don't mind a potential 15 min walk from wherever you could find a park, this is the best free swimming pool in the region.
