Ok, so I admit that this isn’t technically a hide away. It’s quite well known but it’s just so beautiful!
Double Bay’s Red Leaf pool is well known to locals. It’s lovely harbour views and shade make it a lovely family spot on a hot Sydney day. Parking is difficult on busy days but if you venture there early or during weekdays you are sure to find a park. There are two pontoons that are very swimmable from the shore.
It’s the perfect little day off spot.
