Nielson Park

9 Jan

ImageThis is a great spot for a swim.  You are literally in the harbour and you can get a unique view of the city if you swim out to the net.  There is a great park with heaps of trees for shade, it’s pretty much a kids swimming place in the morning!

Gymea Bay Baths

14 Dec

1070658_10151825562680739_1213774176_o Gymea Baths (Ellesmere Road, Gymea) are heritage listed.  This is a fab spot and a bit hard to find, which is a good thing as not to many people will know this is here.  I missed the entrance the first time.  You can drive down the drive way to the right of this sign post.  However, there are only a few car spots so if its a hot day you will probably need ‘to walk down the short (steep) drive way. Once you get to the bottom this is what you discover.  You can get to Gymea by train and then take the 974 bus (Veolia Transport) directly to the top of the drive way to the Baths.

Gunamatta Bay Bathes

12 Dec


Entry is at Gunamatta Park via Nicholson Parade, Cronulla.  These baths were originally built in 1915 and were then demolished and rebuilt to the current form in 1939.  The Park is directly behind Cronulla Station so very easy to access.  A bit exposed to the wind, the day I visited it was very windy and not that pleasant.
