Almost Australia Day Ocean Swim


About the Event:
This is a social ocean swim that caters for a range of participants, by allowing you to choose your distance on the day and providing opportunities to exit the course at your discretion.
This is not a race and Lifesavers are on hand to keep an eye on swimmers.

The Course:
The course begins at Main Beach near the Surf Lifesaving Club, with the 3km event participants heading into Ladies Beach and then turning south to Shelly’s and back to Main Beach. 1km & 2km participants will head straight out from Main Beach before also turning south to Shelly’s and then back to the starting point.
The majority of the course runs parallel with the beach and offers plenty of options to opt out at any stage, or head into shore for a break before re-entering the course at the Southern end of Main or Shelly’s.
And yes – you can even wear flippers if you need.

Cost and Registration:
All participants = $10

This year (2022) we are also looking to hold a free swim clinic after the event to provide beginners an opportunity to spend a little extra time in the ocean and learn some basic skills. If you are interested in attending please register using the above link.

With thanks to the support of the Emu Park Surf Life Saving Club who keep us safe out in the water.
