Updated: 28 May 2020: anticipated works completion end of July 2020
At the end of March 2020, swimming pools were flagged as places more likely to promote congregation than other open-space activities. Because of this, swimming pools are required to close under a NSW Government public health order.

Wylie's Baths was closed for entry from 28 March 2020. We remain closed to all entrants, except for caretaker staff and tradespeople.

We do hope to see everyone soon! However, please rest assured that since we've closed the gate we’ve been taking this as an opportunity to complete some maintenance across the facility which might otherwise be a little disruptive to swimmers and patrons trying to rest and meditate.

We have confirmed a pool repair & concrete works schedule with Randwick City Council and (weather dependant) this will be a six-week program beginning the first week of May 2020.

The Wylies Baths Trust is closely monitoring government recommendations & advice from health authorities related to public recreation spaces but the facility will be closed regardless until the capital works projects are completed, anticipating completion of work towards the end of July 2020. From that point, Wylies Baths will be able to re-assess the health advice from relevant State & Local authorities.

Thank you for your continued support!

NSW has implemented social distancing to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Here is an animation on how it works:

Social distancing is an effective measure, but it is recognised that it cannot be practised in all situations and the aim is to generally reduce potential for transmission.

While practising social distancing, people can travel to work (including public transport). For non-essential activities outside the workplace or attendance at schools, universities and childcare - social distancing includes:

  • avoiding crowds and mass gatherings where it is difficult to keep the appropriate distance away from others
  • avoiding small gatherings in enclosed spaces, for example family celebrations
  • attempting to keep a distance of 1.5 metres between themselves and other people where possible, for example when they are out and about in public place.
  • avoiding shaking hands, hugging, or kissing other people
  • avoiding visiting vulnerable people, such as those in aged care facilities or hospitals, infants, or people with compromised immune systems due to illness or medical treatment
