These hidden pools are thought to be one of the first ever in NSW. They are tricky to find, but worth the adventure!
These half natural, half man-made pools are located just south of Flagstaff Hill, under the lighthouse amongst rocks in a small sheltered cove. To get down to the pool you start from the top of the hill near the lookout and head under the fence down a steep, narrow path chiselled into the sandstone rock — there is no handrail and the old chains the used to be here are gone so climb at your own risk! Once a women’s only swimming area, they are now open to all. The Nun’s Baths are very secluded, not usually very populated and very very special.
