Statement of significance:

Probably Bondi's best-loved historical building, home of the Bondi Icebreakers and a place where time seems to have stood still since the 1930's. This structure replaces baths of 1887, which had been extended in 1899, remodelled in 1911 and demolished in 1925 to build the present ones which opened in 1931.
