Newcastle Ocean Baths

The Ocean Baths were constructed and in use before WWI, though not formally opened until the 1920s. The baths' popularity has never waned throughout the ensuring decades and thousands of Novocastrians remember it fondly as the place where they first learned to swim. Construction began in 1910 with the construction of the pavilion beginning in 1922.

A huge map of the world was etched into the floor of the Canoe Pool next to the main facility, however it is now buried with sand.
