Where to swim - South Yarra

Recommended Posts

Ill be staying at hotel in South Yarra (Como) for a few days over the weekend and keen to get a couple of swims in.

Are there any 50m pools close by or within reasonable bus/tram distance?

 

Found a wattbike studio to try in Melb - so that will be my Sat am ride.

Oompa the river is a toxic waste dump.

 

Quack there is an indoor 50m pool on bridge rd and Gleadal st next to the town hall. Would be closer than msac.

Oompa, as Clydesdale says, it's not healthy to swim that end of the Yarra. I used to kayak around there and if you tipped you were very careful not to get a mouthful.

Prahran pool.

 

 

Correct.

 

From Como, go south on Chapel St until you hit Commercial Rd/Malvern Rd (same thing), go left for about 200m, turn right at Essex St. It's about a 15 min walk from Como.

 

It's shut between 9.30 & 4.30 on weekdays in winter, but normal hours over the weekend.

Be careful what you wear at Prahran, nothing too skimpy otherwise you'll have a bunch of guys following closely behind in your lane.

Doubt there is anybody sick/desperate enough to be intentionally following me around...
