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.

Please be advised, due to necessary maintenance works, Maccallum pool will be closed from 7am 20 November to 7am 27 November. We apologise for any inconvenience caused during this time.

  • from Tuesday 3 October 1am, until Wednesday 4 October 7am
  • from Wednesday 11 October 9am, until Thursday 12 October 7am
