About us

Greenwich Baths is nestled on the tip of Greenwich Point, with spectacular harbor views including Cockatoo Island, Iron Cove and Balmain to the south. To the southeast the imposing Sydney CBD skyline includes the banking skyscrapers and Centrepoint Tower.  The Harbour’s pleasant waters are ideal for swimming and the facilities at Greenwich Baths cater for everyone from  toddlers having a splash to a lap swimmer enjoying their training.

The baths are surrounded by a shark-proof net and are an enclosed site with child-proof gating so you and your family can feel perfectly safe enjoying your day on the beach.  For families and young mums there are toys provided for the ever-important sandcastle building, and the tiny lapping waves are a safe introduction for babies to the ocean water. For those who just want a relaxing day by the harbour, we have provided brand new sun-loungers and picnic tables for you to come and enjoy a great cup of coffee and some fish and chips from our café. For those who enjoy an active day at the beach, a 30m lap section with lane ropes is available complete with turn boards to have a unique workout in our city’s harbour and then relax with a cold drink and the weekend newspaper. If you are  seeking a satisfying lunch, our new menu includes delicious salt and pepper calamari and hot chips, toasted sandwiches and milkshakes with a big scoop of gelato, as well as excellent coffee and snacks.

Changing rooms and shower facilities are provided, and the entry fee enables you access to all these facilities. Children under 3 are free of charge, and if customers wish to have food or a coffee at the café tables but not access the beach there is no charge. There is free parking on the residential streets and the Sailing Club has a car park just a short walk away from the Baths. The site is also accessible as a walk from Wollstonecraft train station, by the 265 bus or by taking the Sydney Ferries Woolwich/Balmain ferry route to Greenwich Point which docks metres away from the Baths.
