Owned and run by members for members on a not for profit basis, this community club is the oldest of its kind in the world.

Our Grade 'A' listed Victorian bathing complex was constructed in 4 phases over 32 years by eminent architects of the time.

150 years ago, the founders of the Club achieved a relaxed combination of physical exercise and sociability which continues to be embraced and enjoyed by our members today.
