The Bondi Icebergs Pool appears to emerge out of a dream. It is the most photographed ocean pool in the world and is located at Sydney’s most popular beach. You'll see it when you walk north along Bondi's coast.

Icebergs Pool is a 50m saltwater bath that attracts swimmers, sunbathers, and spectators from all over the world. The reason for its popularity is that you can feel huge waves crashing onto you as you come up for air.

For 100 years, the baths have been considered a landmark in Bondi. Bondi Icebergs is the oldest winter swimming club in Australia established in 1929. The organization even has a small museum on the first floor. Keep in mind that if you want to become a member of this club, you must spend three Sundays per month swimming there, for a five-year period!

The pool is open to the public year round, but it closes down in Thursdays for cleaning.
