McIvers Baths, Coogee
McIvers Baths is under a cliff face, on a rock platform between Coogee Beach and Wylies Baths. The baths have magnificent oceans views and are relatively well screened from the surrounding area. (I took the shot from inside.)The baths were built in 1886, but accordign to the National Trust it has been a popular swimming spot for women since before 1876.This pool (entrance donation 20 cents) is popular with nuns, Muslim women, lesbians, and elderly women (well women of all ages, really). In 1995, after a challenge int he courts, it was granted an exemption under the Anti-Discrimination Act to continue operating as women-only.
