Merewether Ocean Baths, Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia
A late afternoon storm had persisted over the coast, whipping up the water and deterring even the regulars from their swim at the Merewether Baths. Come sunset, the sun broke through slightly delivering a rainbow and burst of colour in the clouds. Despite the conditions, it is times like this when mother nature truly delivers spectacular scenes.
Opened in 1935, the Merewether Ocean Baths are the largest ocean baths complex in the Southern Hemisphere. Open all year round, they have a long history as a popular swimming spot for Newcastle locals.
