Historic rule 15B

“…so you can catch the bus to Bondi…’

Midnight Oil

So the Icebergs Swimming club at Bondi kicked out the then sitting PM, Malcolm Turnbull. Why? Well, he broke the rules. During the first 5 years of membership every swimmer must swim 3 of 4 Sundays, May through September. A member not complying must explain in writing 14 days prior to their absence. Simply being a busy Prime Minister didn’t cut it. Founded in 1923, Icebergs is a winter swimming club, that is world famous. Their sea pool is acknowledged as the most photographed swimming pool in the world -just check Instagram. Their clubrooms host the Headquarters of Surf-life Saving Australia and an iconic restaurant. One time non local visitors (you and me) can enjoy it all for $8 a swim.
