The Nuns Pool Story

The Sisters of Mercy (Parramatta) came to Cronulla in 1924 and bought the first of two properties whereupon they built their residence and convent which they named "Stella Maris". During the years they would bathe within a small rock formation in front of Stella Maris.

A concrete wall was later built which became their sea pool. Though the pool is not officially noted on any maps, thousands of local people collectively know it's name as "The Nuns' Pool".


The Sutherland Shire Council after 1948 deemed this pool to be a health risk as it did not rejuvinate itself due to its sheltered position. The concrete was then taken down.

Evidence of the concrete wall can still be seen. Today, a new and splendid Stella Maris nursing home and hostel stands before this historic "Nuns' Pool."
