The Dawn Fraser Pool, in the foreground, is one of Australia's oldest swimming pools. Built in 1883 it is the only remaining enclosed saltwater timber pool. It is surrounded by large wide wooden decks and old fashioned boardwalks. Originally known as Elkington Park Baths and also Balmain Baths it was renamed for one of Australia's greatest Olympians who started her swimming career here in the early 1950's and still lives in the area.
