Outdoor harbour pool

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

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, it needs to be regularly cleaned.

The pool is cleaned once a week (tide dependant) and requires closure to reduce 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.

The pool is closed for cleaning on the following dates:


  • from Thursday 21 March 9.30am, until Friday 22 March 7am
  • from Thursday 28 March 1am, until Friday 29 March 7am


  • from Thursday 4 April 8am, until Friday 5 April 7am
  • from Thursday 11 April 12am, until Friday 12 April 7am
  • from Thursday 18 April 7am, until Friday 19 April 7am
  • from Tuesday 23 April 9.30am, until Wednesday 24 April 7am

  • from Tuesday 7 May 9.30am, until Wednesday 8 May 7am
  • from Monday 13 May 2.30am, until Tuesday 14 May 7am
  • from Tuesday 21 May 8.30am, until Wednesday 22 May 7am
