Maccallum Pool

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


Originally it was just a rock pool created by local residents to form a safe harbour swimming hole (see the video below).

Now the architectural style of the current pool dates from the 1920s.

In keeping with that character it was restored by Council in 1985.

Maintenance is ongoing with the most recent works to decking and fence done Aug 2020.

The pool is always open and only closes for cleaning as detailed below.


Cleaning Schedule

Because the pool is above the high-water mark, and it is filled with water directly from the harbour, beautiful Maccallum pool needs to be regularly cleaned.

It is completed once a week (dependent on the tides) and requires closure to allay the health and safety risks of an empty or half-full pool.

Once the pool is refilled to an adequate level it is reopened to the public.
