From lap pools to ocean pools, harbour pools to waterfalls, Sydney is arguably the best major city in Australia for swimming, if not the world! And Places We Swim Sydney covers the very best of the city’s famous and hidden swimming spots.
After the success of their first book, Places We Swim, authors Caroline Clements and Dillon Seitchik-Reardon have followed up with a deep dive into Sydney in this ultimate city guide to the aqueous outdoors. Places We Swim Sydney is divided into six city regions, encompassing walks and swims within two hours of the CBD – from Manly in the north, to Maroubra in the east, Royal National Park in the south, and out to the Blue Mountains in the west. You’ll discover just what makes each swimming spot unique, learn the best time to go, gain some useful local knowledge and find out the most delicious things to eat nearby.
With destinations ranging from neighbourhood city pools to gorges that feel like the outback, Places We Swim Sydney is a celebration of not just these magnificent swimming locations, but of the diverse landscapes and water-loving communities that make up Sydney.
While writing their first book Places We Swim, Caroline Clements and Dillon Seitchik-Reardon had a goal – to discover Australia’s best places to swim. But in many ways, it was an informal search for their next place to live. Sydney is an active, energetic, optimistic and water-loving city. It is now their home and the subject of their second book, Places We Swim Sydney. Caroline is a writer and content producer and was the founding editor of Broadsheet. She has produced cookbooks and produces guides in Melbourne and Sydney. Dillon is an environmental scientist and photographer and has co-written gardening books for the Little Veggie Patch Co. Together they have written and photographed all entries in the book with contributions from Benjamin Law, Aquabumps, Giovanni Pilu, Remy Gerega, Hetty McKinnon, Jane de Graaff, Helena Dolby, Luisa Brimble and Nikki To.
Sydney beach lovers this is a book to have and it treats you to so many amazing locations where to splash, chill and be in the magic city of Syndey.
Just in time for Summer and a great gift to put on the list for everyone who loves to know where to swim in NSW and it does give you loads of info.
