Restoration works to the Heritage Listed Dawn Fraser Baths which entail rebuilding the pavillion on the Southern (land) side has now commenced. The work includes raising the floor/boulevard level by approximately 1 meter to mitigate against sea level rise. This includes the floor in the Club’s room where the Club’s historical collection is stored on the upper level.

With the welcomed assistance of Amie Zar, who is responsible for History Collections at Inner West Council, the majority of the collection is now stored safely upstairs at Balmain Town Hall for the duration of the build.
It is expected that the Baths will be reopened in October 2020.
