Coogee, Giles Baths (Theme Day: Doorways)

This doorway with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean is located in Dunningham Park at Dolphin Point, in the eastern suburb of Coogee. It leads to Giles Baths which are rock pools located down the stairs, near Coogee Beach. The doorway was part of the Giles Baths complex that included a gym, hot sea baths and a private sunbaking area. The portico was preserved when the building was demolished in 2000.
