Australia Swims

Celebrating Australia’s love of the water
This January we invited every Australian to take part in a 9-day celebration of water right across the country.

From January 20th to 28th Australians took to the water to show their love of swimming. From ocean swims and pool parties, to beach barbies and snorkel safaris. Experiences were created right across Australia.

During this time we set the challenge to collectively swim a whole Lap of Australia and thanks to the efforts of the Australian people we can confirm that we did it! We swam a grand total of 39,113.08 KM, passing our lap target of 35,877KM.

Want to do it all again? Stay tuned for Australia Swims 2019! Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for regular updates!

Make it easy for every Australian to get involved with Australia Swims
At an event, in a pool, at the beach or somewhere else, we’re looking for swim experiences that appeal to every Australian. Young or old. Fast or slow. Lane lapper or ocean splasher. Experiences are opportunities for people to get involved with swimming. An experience can be anything: an ocean race, a pool party, swimming with dolphins. It’s up to you! And they can take place anywhere. In a pool, at the beach or somewhere else.
