2020 Maintenance Closure Dates for Cronulla Rock Pool South

Cronulla Rock Pool South Temporary Closures for Scheduled Cleaning and Maintenance 2020.

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

Cronulla Rock Pool South 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 Rock Pool South will be temporarily closed for scheduled cleaning and maintenance in 2020 (weather and ocean conditions permitting) on the following dates:

  • 17-19 February 2020
  • 18-20 March 2020
  • 1-3 April 2020
  • 4-6 May 2020
  • 2-4 June 2020
  • 1-3 July 2020
  • 26-28  August 2020
  • 13-15 October 2020
  • 10-12 November 2020
  • 8-10 December 2020

Each cleaning requires the removal of approximately 2000-2500 m3 of sands and requires regular pool closure.  Thank you for your patience during these maintenance periods.
