Right next to Luna Park and with stunning views of Sydney Harbour and the Harbour Bridge, the Olympic Pool in North Sydney is the perfect place to relax at the end of the week. Their Lane 9 gym is open to residents living close by or workers from North Sydney CBD and offers a number of classes throughout the week, including aqua aerobics! A whopping 86 world records have been set in this pool so we reckon it’s the best place to start swimming like a champion!
