Sometimes those of us who are in the Northern Hemisphere hunkered down in the cold of winter can forget that “down under,” they’re having prime summertime. So what better way to enjoy warm summer weather than in a beautiful pool? Here’s a small selection of pools from Victoria’s own Feature Pools, a concrete pool-construction company that serves clients from Mornington Peninsula to metropolitan Melbourne, the Bellarine Peninsula, and the Surf Coast, and they’ve been putting together wonderful water “escapes” like these for over 30 years. Just imagine dipping into the cool blue of a lap pool surrounded by a neat green lawn and a privacy fence covered in more greenery. The edge is pristine white, and the water inviting — by day or evening!

And there’s more: don’t you love the curved pool with the high blue tile retaining wall, infinity edge, and terrific view of vineyards and gardens? Paddle around here and you’re liable to imagine you can swim right through the trees; if you need a break, a neat square spa stands ready. One pool features cascades from individual waterspouts — fun for all ages, and a relaxing view when up-lighted at night. Because Feature Pools specializes in concrete work, hardscapes such as decking, walkways, patios, and the like become special in their own right, as you can see with the dramatic lighting along one pool’s walls here. Day or night, sun or shade, when it’s time to swim, these spots are irresistible — a highlight of any back yard, from Australia’s Feature Pools.
