TOP SWIMMING NEXT TO THE BEACH
Is this cheating, I don’t know but undoubtedly one of my favourite exercise spots is the Cotton Tree pool.
Other than the Icebergs Club on Bondi, where could be more special than this place to get your swimercise in? There are two main pools 50 and 25 metres, as well as a smaller heated one for kids classes. There is also a crèche facility which is ideal for those with young kids such as myself.
Alongside the main pool is a variety of self weighted exercise equipment and alongside that breathtaking views of the Maroochy rivermouth, with it’s emerging sand islands and pelicans.
This is a great spot late afternoon when the sun starts to go down and the sky blushes.
Next to the pool is the Boat Shed Restaurant if you fancy fine dining or tapas to finish your afternoon off.
