Re: Sri ChinmoyPool Swimmers - & Swim in Australia
- It seems that Australia has 50 meter pools in most towns. I confirmed
that there are two on the 1X bus route to Cairns on the Cook Highway
One is opposite the Cook University [before you get to SmithField
and other is just before you get to Cairns, Topak [spelling?]Centre
More details on request.
p.s. Green cover over half the pool so it is coller and only $3.00
Australian for the day
