Morning laps, Bondi Baths
Morning laps at Bondi Baths.
Bondi Icebergs was founded in 1929 by some dedicated winter swimmers. Every Sunday from May to September, over 700 male and female swimmers compete in races. To be a full swimming member you must swim three out of four Sundays for a period of five years. There are 90-0dd junior members, aged 5 -17, called 'Bondi Icecubes'.
The official winter swimming season opens on the first Sunday in May, when blocks of ice are ceremoniously thrown into the pool.
