Fodor's Review

The largest ocean baths (swimming pools) in the Southern Hemisphere, Mereweather Baths are a Newcastle icon perfect for swimming and splashing all year-round. Opened in 1935 at one of the city's six fabulous beaches, they comprise two pools, with one suitable for children. Complete with barbecues and picnic tables, the baths are the ideal place for a family outing. The baths are patrolled by lifeguards during the summer months only, from around late September to late April.
