Bondi Icebergs, Sydney
Sitting at the southern end of Sydney’s Bondi Beach, the Bondi Icebergs Club is an iconic international landmark. Established in 1929, members swim races in the ocean pool every Sunday throughout winter and the venue has been used for fashion parades, photo shoots, TV shows and commercials. Once you’ve had a swim, you can also enjoy a great meal at one of Sydney’s best restaurants — the Icebergs Dining Room. Ocean pools are a bit of an institution in Australia — in Sydney, you’ll find others at Curl Curl, Manly and Bronte Beach.
