2022 Closure Dates for Cronulla Ocean Pool (South)

Cronulla Ocean Pool (South) Temporary Closures for Scheduled Cleaning and Maintenance 2022

The two ocean pools at Cronulla are much-loved swimming locations for residents and visitors alike.

The ocean pool at Cronulla Beach (also known as South Cronulla) is an Olympic-sized tidal pool adjacent to the Esplanade.  The pool was designed to naturally flush by the action of tide and waves overtopping the seawall to maintain water quality. With changing seasonal tides and ocean conditions, however, the pool frequently fills with sand and seaweed which reduces the depth of the water in the pool. This continual influx necessitates regular pool closure and mechanical removal of the sand to re-establish water depths.

Cronulla ocean pool (south) will be closed for scheduled cleaning and maintenance in 2022 (weather and ocean conditions permitting) on the following dates:

  • February 8 to 11
  • April 11 to 15
  • April 25 to 29
  • May 23 to 27
  • July 25 to 29
  • August 8 to 12
  • September 19 to 23
  • October 3 to 7
  • November 1 to 4
  • December 19 to 22

Each cleaning requires the removal of approximately 2000-2500 m3 of sand. 

Thank you for your patience during these maintenance periods.
