Sydney – A Pool With A View

The world is amazing at 5.30am! I am the kind of person that rarely sees 5.30am, it happens just a couple of times a year. When I travel to and from Sydney and I bounce awake in the middle of the night.

Well that happened yesterday, so I did what any Sydneysider would do once the sun was up and I got out there amongst it!

There is a place I love not far from my parents place and it is an old fashioned harbourside pool with one of the most breathtaking views of Sydney. Yesterday there wasn’t a breath of air, the yachts bobbed on the harbour and all you could hear was the soft splashing of the swimmers in the pool.

The pool is a rock pool that grew and if you have never been to Sydney her beach and harbourside pools are beautiful.

This was what Sydney looked like yesterday.

Cremorne Point is a lovely walk along the foreshore and if it is your first time in Sydney and you find yourself on the north shore it’s a wonderful place to hug a tree, lie on the grass or have a picnic. Fresh air and scents abound.

And when you walk a little further you get the whole Sydney sheebang in one frame, the Opera House, the city and the harbour bridge. Worth getting up at 5.30am for.

Enter via Sirius Street and take the beautiful walk along the foreshore.

    Sydney is gorgeous. I used to fly there for work regularly and I lived there for 6 months. I was (and am) always so excited to see the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. So very, very cool.

  18. Hi Carla,
    I was so surprised that McCallum pools was part of your blog post as I have spent many many years swimming in its glazy waters myself! Although not a local, my very good friend is and my own son lives just a stone throw away on Kurraba point today.
    What a great place! Its magic.
    So welcome home if only for a short while (she says smiling!) Therese
