Wallaroo swimming pool

Part of the town every kid knows, the local pool is a netted off area of the sea, adjacent to the jetty.

and a wider view from further up the jetty.

In the background is the preserved, last remaining chimney from the old smelting stacks, square shaped in the Cornish tradition. And I just found this shot from the old days:

Even in this shot, the big Hughes Stack stands out. Click on the image to be taken to the SA Memory page describing the photograph and giving information about the smelting era.
