Australians love swimming. And Australia’s love of the sport has led to some of the most stunning pools in the world. The “Bondi Icebergs” sits along the Bondi Beach coast in Sydney. The 50 meter saltwater Olympic sized pool is the most beautifully designed pool in the world.
And the most photographed.
Beautiful Design in Sports
The 2000 Sydney Olympics solidified Australia’s top tier status in the pool. It also launched a set of beautifully designed sports structures. When Australia’s Ian Thorpe finished the 4×100 free relay beating the Americans for the first time in history, he cemented a rivalry, boosted tourism, and launched a thousand beautiful swimming structures.
For instance, The Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Center, designed by COX Architecture, set the stage for a beautiful marriage between sport and design. It’s one of the largest aquatic centers in the world. With seating for 17,000, The Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Center is a sought after venue for high-level swim competitions. These events drove tourism in Sydney for years. They are likely to do so again when we regain our pre-Covid mobility.
It’s unsurprising that Australia has the best oceanside pools in the world. And Bondi Icebergs is the best of both. It is an Olympic-size swim pool that’s meet ready.
And the best part; it’s open to the public for just ten bucks a pop.
The Bondi Icebergs was built over a hundred years ago and is marked as a national landmark in Australia. Flanked by a great surf scene and fantastic dining, Bondi beach is idyllic.
Incredible cuisine, stunning views, and beautiful design. Sign me up.
The Bondi icebergs pool is beautiful enough to make this swammer want to jump back in the water.
