Outdoor Pools in Melbourne

We recently highlighted some of the best outdoor pools in Sydney and now, it’s Melbourne’s turn to show off the public baths, beach rock pools and outdoor pools in and around Victoria’s capital city.

Baths are the historic name from many pools because the rock pools and tidal pools at beaches were used for bathing throughout history. But don’t worry, you won’t find anyone bringing a bar of soap to these newer, […]
