Maccallum Pool

Maccallum Pool
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 2023 dates:


  • from Thursday 16 March 7am, until Friday 17 March 7am
  • from Thursday 23 March 1am, until Friday 24 March 7am
  • from Tuesday 28 March 5am, until Wednesday 29 March 7am
