A Winter Swim at Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre

You don’t have to risk pneumonia to practice your freestyle this winter.

With winter throwing a blanket of chill and darkness over the city, it's getting even harder to sneak in that post-work swim with the beach definitely not on the cards. As everyone surely knows, Australians must go swimming at least once a week or we lose our citizenship, so head down to the Thorpedo's pool to get a few lengths in.

The pool is heated snugly, so the only cold you'll worry about is the bit between getting out of the water and getting into a towel. Even then, if that's too much, head to the steam room or the spa to get that core temperature back up to a toasty 37 degrees.
