Maccallum Pool

Maccallum Pool, on the western side of Cremorne Point, is a unique 33m harbourside pool with heritage character and superb views.

Its waterside timber deck is an unparalleled sun bathing spot.

It was originally just a rock pool created by local residents to form a safe harbour swimming hole. For more information, view our Cremorne Point History Walk leaflet below.

The architectural style of the current pool dates back to the 1920s and was restored in keeping with this heritage theme by Council 1985-1986.


Cleaning Timetable

Maccallum Pool needs to be emptied, cleaned, and refilled usually once a week due to its position above the highwater mark.

Closure times are estimated below but may vary according to tides and weather conditions, and the length of these times may vary due to Council work-scheduling constraints - so please check the noticeboard at the pool as well.
