Lunchtime Laps at Andrew "Boy" Charlton
Make sure to admire the Sydney Harbour views as you come up for air.
April 21, 2017
Sydney has a lot of outdoor pools in stunning spots, but one of the oldest and most iconic is the Andrew "Boy" Charlton Pool near the Royal Botanic Gardens — Australia's first ever swimming races took place there in 1846. In 1968, the pool, formerly known as the Domain Baths, took on its current name in honour of Andrew "Boy" Charlton, who set five world records at various Olympics. Duck out from your desk on Tuesday, and head to the pool for some picturesque laps, before the weather turns too cold.
