How many ocean pools are there in New South Wales?-Flash of Culture™

How many ocean pools are there in New South Wales?

There are over 100 ocean pools in NSW and Sydney alone has over 35 pools. Did you ever wonder why you see so many ocean pools and rock pools around NSW and not in the other states? Well, it turns out they were built to provide a safe swimming area away from the rough surf of the East Coast. Some of the pools are over 100 years old, but not a single new pool has been carved out since the 1960s.
