Sydney's Most Fun Outdoor Pools

Swimming season is officially here!

Sydney has a swag of awesome outdoor pools that offer not only an area to swim in, but also water slides, wave pools, splash pads and whirlpools. Here's a list of the top 10, located all across Sydney.

Fairfield Leisure Centre - Fairfield

Prairiewood Leisure Centre - Prairiewood

Overview: The adventure aqua playground Aquatopia is the reason to come to this pool. There are outdoor and indoor pools and the charge to use Aquatopia is in addition to the pool entrance fee. But it's definitely worth it, with 10 metre high triple slides, giant water buckets, mushroom showers and the Stingray Surf Rider and Fishpipe ride. It's much more affordable than going to the one of the bigger water slide parks.
