A long list of 50 metre swimming pools in Sydney
Discover Sydney's Olympic Swimming Pools

Australia has a proud record of medals and records in Olympic swimming. So it stands to reason that there would be a few Olympic-sized swimming pools around. What I didn't realise was just how many and varied Sydney's Olympic pools are. We have both indoor and outdoor pools, new and old pools and we even have Olympic-sized ocean pools, rock pools and harbour baths.

Olympic Pools Sydney
Dive in and discover Sydney's Olympic pools


It is usually around this time of the year, I call it "school swimming carnival season", that I go looking for a 50 metre pool for the kids to swim a few laps in. Not content to return to our local pool year in and year out, I have endeavoured to put together a comprehensive list of Olympic-sized swimming pools in Sydney. It's always nice to have a change of scenery, don't you think?

As I have only visited a fraction of the pools personally I have relied on various sources of information to compile this list, so if your local Olympic pool is missing please leave a comment so I can add it.

So why not pack your swim cap and goggles and check out some or all of these Olympic sized pools in your area and beyond.

* It is important to be aware that some of the outdoor pools listed are open seasonally. Please check the pool website before visiting during winter to avoid disappointment.

**All entry prices were correct at the time of publishing. Prices quoted are for casual visits only. Some pools offer discounted rates for members
