Australia Day Ocean Swim 2019

What a stunning morning at Emu Park and what a way to kick of a day of celebrating being Australian!

14 swimmers jumped in the water for the 3km, 30 swimmers in the 2km, and 35 swimmers in the 1km. A great turn out with people, not just locals, but some traveling from Gladstone, Mackay and Biloela.

A special thank you to Emu Park Surf Life Saving Club for the water safety and everyone who paddled on the day.
