Best of Sydney

BEST POOL (INDOOR): Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre

The Harry Seidler-designed aquatic centre is the best spot in Sydney for year-round swimming, with its Olympic-sized heated indoor pool. If laps of freestyle aren’t your thing, get your endorphin fix in the fully equipped fitness centre, splash around in the spa or sweat it out in sauna. (Danielle Bevins-Sundvall)
