Bondi Icebergs: Celebrating 90 years

Several visits this year for Tropfest, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, a Christmas work function and more recently a fancy date, the many reasons for a series of visits here not just by the editorial team but as the premium location to host nationally acclaimed events we celebrate their upcoming 90th Anniversary.

The winter swimming club dates back to 1929, and the club bistro perched on the rocks above has one of the best coastal views in Sydney with Bondi Icebergs being the only licensed winter swimming club in the world!  It’s genesis conceived as a way for a group of local lifesavers to keep fit during the lazier winter months.  Membership is reserved for those only who can maintain a mandatory quota of 75 swim sessions in 5 years otherwise risk envoking “rule 15B” which leads to being banned.  900 active swimming members range from 5 to 90 from many ethnic backgrounds.  Induction days to join take place in April, otherwise social and Gold memberships are available with tier access and privileges at the site’s facilities.
