Ocean pools study

Local ocean pools, including those at Mona Vale, Avalon, Narrabeen, Newport and Bilgola, are part of a NSW-wide survey by architect Nicole Larkin. Ms Larkin, reports Pittwater Community Alliance, is keen to develop a coalition of pool groups, users and aficionados to see if protection for ocean pools can be gained. Ms Larkin can be contacted via her website.


The Wild Edge is a freely available body of research. Data collected for this project has been cataloged on this website in digital format including interactive models of each pool. Navigate through each pool here. To see more go to view all or for more information on the project see about the Wild Edge.

Access to the full report, data and design guidelines is available below.

The Wild Edge is a project of the Byera Hadley Travelling Scholarship supported by the NSW Architects Registration Board and the NSW National Trust.
