Bondi Icebergs Club

The Bondi Icebergs Swimming Club is an Australian winter swimmers club,[1] located at the southern end of Bondi Beach in Sydney, New South Wales. The swimming club was established in 1929 and has a small museum on the first floor.[2] A defining characteristic of the Club is a rule that to maintain membership it was mandatory that swimmers compete on three Sundays out of four for a period of five years.[3]
