Facing Woolloomooloo Bay and opposite the brilliantly green Botanical Gardens, the ABC pool is one of the swimming pools in Sydney – an eight-lane, 50-metre outdoor (heated) saltwater one to be exact. It offers serious swimming but the poolside terrace area where bronzed bodies prance, strut and mince about in miniscule swimsuits is popular for tan-toppers. It has a huge gay following and a fabulous après-swim café/bar overlooking the pool.
