Gymea Bay, baths

The heritage-listed Gymea Bay Baths are a popular attraction on Gymea Bay, part of the Port Hacking estuary in the southern suburbs. The Gymea Bay Swimming Club have been using the baths for over 40 years.

  1. This looks beautiful for swimming. A little like the lakes I used to go swimming in Switzerland. I guess this is saltwater, while the lakes in SWL are all freshwater. Lived near lake Constance on the Swiss side.

  2. Yes Titania. It's saltwater in the bay and most of the Port Hacking estuary, although freshwater creeks and rivers empty into it.

  3. It is so much more inviting than my watery area just because I know the weather is warmer.

  6. Site of my infamous swimming certificate ... 32 yards, 31 of which at least one toe was on the bottom! 'Heritage listed' good grief! Only marginally better than the muddy-at-low-tide Gunnamatta Bay baths. What a nostalgia ride I'm having today! Thanks Jim :-)
