Thank you so much for the video link.  I remember going to the baths when I was a kid in the 50's and early 60's. We used to spend whole days there.  Great fun and happy memories. I remember watching the diving.

Love this - when I visit Sunshine GC I'm always trying to imagine what these splendid baths looked like. Great to see in this clip that you can make out one end that's still there, faded aquatic grandeur!
