by Brooke Tasovac (follow)
School Holidays (145)      Outdoors (54)      Indoors (35)      Pools (7)     

Indoor pools are a must-have in Sydney on rainy but still humid days. They're also great on super hot days when you can't be out in the sun for more than a few minutes without getting sun burnt. We've chosen pools that have the best facilities for kids for days when the weather isn't behaving properly.


Annette Kellerman Aquatic Centre - Marrickville

Overview: There's a kids splash pool, water fountains and water spouts in this decent sized indoor pool. The cafe on site is pretty good and there is an awesome playground close by.
