2018 Australia Day weekend ocean swims

We all love a good long weekend – three whole days of forgetting about work, and getting in as much ocean swimming as possible!

For this Australia Day long weekend we’ve put together a list of every ocean swim in Australia, so you can find an event near you, or better still, head off on an adventure to swim somewhere new!

No events near you? Find a social ocean swimming group and make new friends.

While you’re out swimming, take a photo and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #oceanfitphotochallenge to go in the draw to WIN some awesome prizes! Learn more
