About the Great Australian Swim

Will you conquer the 500km of Bass Strait, what about the 1,160km of the Great Australian Bight or take on the 2,300km Great Barrier Reef?

Summer in Australia is a time for Aussies to hit the beach to soak up the sun and surf or for families to head to the local pool for a day. So why not give back to those living with dementia at the same time!

Choose the distance you want to swim, fundraising target and get ready to freestyle or paddle your way to your goal.

The Great Australian Swim will take you to some of Australia’s most iconic settings, which one will you choose?
