Maccallum Pool

25 May 2016

Dear Patrons of McCallum Pool

Starting the week of 30 May 2016 - Council contractors will begin repairing and upgrading the decking surface around the pool. It is expected that this work will conclude at the end of June 2016.

Works repairing some concrete spalling on the pump house as well as repainting the pool will also occur during this period.

For safety reasons sections of the decking area of the pool will need to be fenced off during construction.

Council will endeavour to keep the pool itself open for use during this period but there may be occasions where the pool will need to be closed for extended periods of time.

Council will give 48 hour's notice of impending full closures - here on the website and notification at the 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.
