The $250,000 upgrade to the Gymea Bay Baths included the demolition and replacement of the southern deck and walkway including the piles, decking and handrail. A new northern perimeter beam was also constructed and the baths’ netting reinstalled.

The baths are a prominent feature of Gymea Bay and were constructed in the early 1950’s. They retain local heritage value and it was vital the upgrade works essentially renewed the existing structure in accordance with the original construction.

Council used matching hardwood materials and design details that integrated the new works into the existing structure to maintain the heritage character of the baths.

The Gymea Bay baths are located at the head of Gymea Bay, In 2008, council constructed a new footbridge linking the baths to the walking track in Coonong Creek Reserve on the northern shore of the Bay enabling residents and visitors to walk across Coonong Creek.
