Image of an ocean pool under an overcast sky. There is a sign in front reading 'DANGER. POOL CLOSED. NO WATER. NO ENTRY' with orange warning flags draped over the sign.

Pool closed

Shellharbour Ocean Pool closed on 25/3/2020. Our swimming community knew it was going to happen but it was still a shock when the sign went up and the pool was drained. Not to worry … we ended up swimming in the harbour or the ocean… nothing was to stop us swimmers!
