No lockers this is just a ocean rock pool. And the water will be cold in October (it's our winter). Wylies Baths at Coogee charges admission, not sure if there are lockers but would be 'safer' for personal belongings.

McIvers Baths at Coogee is women only (there is admission charge I think).

Irrespective of which season the water will still be reasonably cool and staying in the water for 30 mins may be a challenge You are looking at temps around 18.5- 20c (FWIW those temps are the same as July i.e. winter)

I;d play whether or not you plan to swim on the weather

Difference is that the air temp can get to 33 C in October, so you don't mind going in when the water is a bit cool.

Is there any particular reason you wish to swim at these particular baths? There are plenty of other swimming pools around that do have locker facilities and assuming you are staying around the city, will be closer and more convenient to your accommodation.
