Waverley Council cleans the pools located at North Bondi and Bronte Beach. Below are the latest cleaning schedules.
North Bondi Rock Pool
Located at the North end of the beach just below the grassy knoll lies simple rock pools perfect for young kids who are not confident in the surf. The perfect place for young families to chill.
Bronte Bogey Hole
The Bogey Hole is next to the Bronte Baths and is a naturally formed rock pool. The best time to go is around high tide.
Children enjoy walking on the rocks in low tide looking for crabs and sea urchins.
