LOOKING AFTER YOURSELF
If you are feeling overwhelmed, or otherwise negatively impacted by lockdown, news cycles, change in routines, or restriction of movement; please know this is a normal reaction.
For more information about looking after yourself in this period & resources to help you do so, visit: Beyond Blue Coronavirus Mental Wellbeing Support Service: https://coronavirus.beyondblue.org.au/
Wylie's Baths is built below the high-water mark, which means it gets flushed twice daily by the high tide. If there is much swell (wave action) about, this can create quite rough and dangerous conditions. If you are after "still water" for lap swimming & those infinity pool vibes, best to come in the window of 3 hours before low tide and 3 hours after low tide. Depending on how big the swell is, this window of 'good lap swimming' will diminish ie some days, you're only good for 30 minutes either side of the low mark.
Most importantly, Wylie's Baths is a dynamic tidal pool environment. It's also a 'living pool' with marine life, a natural rock bottom, octopus, fish, sea urchins, and more!
Swim within your ability, and if you aren't sure about getting in, we encourage you to sit and watch the conditions for ten minutes or more, as lulls between sets can give you a false sense of calm in the pool.
If you prefer the whirlpool scene - the high tide will give you better wave action!
Keep in mind, the most dangerous and exposed area of the pool is the northern wall - the one closest to Coogee Beach. As waves crash in to the pool, the water level rises and rushes out via the path of least resistance - north - and can take YOU with the rush of water. Please be mindful of this and follow all signage or instructions related to pool restrictions, or considering your ability & the risks associated with rougher conditions.
