Places starting with C: Coogee tidal baths – Ross Jones Memorial Pool

A few weeks ago I wrote about the scenic tidal pools from Bronte to Coogee in Sydney, Australia.  I have two pools to go and today its the Ross Jones Memorial Pool.

My previous posts are Places starting with B: Bronte Beach, Places starting with C:  Clovelly, Places starting with C: McIver Baths.

Coogee beach by far has the most pools with McIver Baths (for ladies only),  Ross Jones Memorial Pool and Wylie’s Baths.

Ross Jones Pool was built in 1947.  It is located next to the surf life saving club on the southern end of Coogee Beach.  It was named after Roscoe Jones who was an Alderman on the Randwick Council from 1934-37 and who was closely associated with the surf life saving club.

A lot of photos are taken of this pool on sunrise.  Unfortunately I was a little late for that but intend to return one day for a sunrise pic!

  2. I have always wondered how they build these, how did they stop the tides from destroying the work. Amazing. I love those tidal pools, I see so many wonderful photos of them. The problem with Melbourne being more on a bay, nothing like that here. Great shots Karen.

    • Thanks so much. It’s a beautiful place. The wave crashing was on a slow shutter speed but hand held and I worried it might be too blurry but it turned out okay. Thanks for commenting CQ.


  5. Beautiful Kaz. Your water is so turquoise and they make me long for summer back in the northern hemisphere!


    • Thanks Cybele. I think because it’s so shallow with white sand underneath it gives this beautiful colour. I just wanted to hop in. We are just coming into summer now. I hope your winter this time around is milder than the last one.!
